Art Journal — Enjoy it

Every morning when I wake up I have a choice.  To enjoy my day or not.  Happiness for me is a choice.  I want to notice moments. I want to have faith that what is revealed to me in any given day is something I need to see, hear, learn, internalize and act upon.  Whenever I get stressed I return again and again to collage and the art journal.  It is my moving meditation, it is my lifeline that keeps the keel even at worst of times and let’s me sail ahead at best of times.

Today I choose to enjoy it with wishes, faith, dreams, empowerment and journeying. It’s one way, my way today.. How about you…..?IMG_2173 IMG_2175 IMG_2177 IMG_2178 IMG_2180Linking to Art-Journal-Journey

    It’s a wonderful intention to have towards each day–not always easy–your art journal is a great place to put those affirmations!

    This page really struck a cord in me! When I saw these 5 words in your art journal, I heard an instant story…Wish for it, have faith it will be what it is meant to be, let it fill your dreams, let the energy of those dreams empower you, and enjoy every moment of the journey.

    That’s a great attitude and a superb artwork, it jumps with enthusiasm.
    I would add blogging to the happiness of collaging and art journalling as it adds to the pleasure to share with our like-minded blogging friends.

    Your artwork today reminds me of a bible story, which I will not fracture:

    A traveler approached an old man seated by the side of the road. The traveler asked the old man, “How are the people in the town ahead?” The old man, asked in return, “How did you find them in the last town?” The traveler replied, “They were a irritable lot, full of loathing.” The old man, sadly, responded, “You will find them the same in the next town.” The traveler left and the old man sat. Soon, another traveler approached the old man and asked, “How will I find the people in the next town?” The old man asked in reply, “How did you find them in the last town?” The traveler replied, “They were a pleasant lot, quite jovial, indeed!” The old man replied, “You will find them the same in the next town.”

    Your point is well taken, my friend! Our day will be as we expect it to be! Like you, I try my best to always choose joy! Great art today. An even better message!

    “…which I will NOW fracture” not NOT! Ugh!

    My sentiments are totally the same! Each day we choose to be what we want to be and for the rest of our lives and creating through journalling is such an inspirational way to go!

    That is the best way to be: Happy! It isn’t always easy though. I try to pause every morning when I go outside to feed the birds first thing and to look around at my beautiful land and thank my lucky stars that I am here. I’ve really been loving these rainy days we are having.

    You are saying it so wicely and well, Corrine,- and you are so right, …that is what we should all start the day with!!! To enjoy and have faith and to see the world in bright colours like you did here, that is I guess what we can call happiness, dear friend!
