Find Your Balance.

      It's that time of year again when we all start making new plans and thinking about things we'd like to do this coming year.
It is always a time to reflect and wonder and start anew for what you want to change. That's the thing about your life and what you do, you can change it in a minute. You can plan to make it better or even different. We can sometimes get so caught up in our daily routines that change is not an option. It's either too much work or we are so settled that we wouldn't know where to start.

Myself, I could say that this past year has taught me to really go for my dreams. One of which is to take my art career to another level by firstly trying to be a little more meticulous in my work. Really take the time to do things the right way, which is not always easy.
Another is to try and plan out my work more. Think and plan rather than just getting to the easel and painting. This won't really affect the spontaneous factor because the spontaneity is usually done on the canvas anyway.
I have to say that being on a path is not an easy task. We tend to get side-tracked and lose focus along the way.
I, personally have to listen less to others who always seem to have an opinion and do more by myself, for myself. I have to trust and believe more and just really go for it. Life certainly seems shorter than we think when we are busy doing and too long when we don't do enough. As my mentor Heather said to me recently, find a balance. Center yourself physically, mentally and spiritually and find what makes you happy.
Peace and love to everyone this coming new year. Make it your best year ever!!
Thanks for your support
