Life can be a colourful work of art if we let it

Lately I have been caught up in a whirlwind, life sometimes warps around you till you forget about yourself. I had been doing more and more, till I had to stop I was in pain, I still am in pain, my leg is now resting. I have exhaled but I am having trouble smiling. Believing in life and dreams you create for yourself.

Remember, believe me to tell yourself, enough is enough, stop before it gets too late. You need to be around for a lot longer yet, you are still young and you can enjoy life. There is nothing in this world, that can change who you are, and take the time to remind yourself you have everything you need, right there inside you, you can make the right choices and give yourself the life you deserve. “We are beautiful.”

Life can be a work of art, in a world where it is often talked about by the bold and the beautiful. It can be the same for us, because we learn to believe in ourselves.

We think about the bold and the beautiful through life, watching their lives through our eyes. It does please us to see their lives, but do they experience the life as we do? What I am trying to describe is the whole person, wrapped up into one including, spirit, attitude and the intentions. The bold and the beautiful; need to allow positive feelings in and around their life, through actions, words and thoughts this equals life experience..

With life experience now her/him matter of choice, they was no time to waste with depression or anxiety. There was no time to waste in letting go fear, life experience again fronted itself leaving her/him open to seeing there is solutions as they appear. There was no time to waste in letting depression or anxiety control their lives.

I must admit over the years, what I have thought, “What would I have done if I had my time all over again,” Thought s on what we would gain if we could banish depression an anxiety from our lives all together. What would we do? Give it some thought as you read this! Depression an anxiety occupied my brain for a long time, the space it occupies in your brain is not to be taken lightly, the energy it depletes from your body, the things you desire or want to do, the time it takes to love someone, or show someone kindness.

Decide today is the day get up and get going, there is a future out there for everyone. Have faith in yourself, let go and enjoy life Now!

There is times when bad things happen to good kind people, people can often get into a cycle of imagining or even expecting bad things to happen, around every corner you turn. By do that, we begin to live our lives in a protective shroud, emotionally shielding ourselves from the next blow. We create many problems by doing that, the most important thing I can remember when I did that is, you miss out on the next wild, wonderful, and beautiful thing that might happen to you. When I opened my eyes to life and acknowledged the bad stuff, to me the best solution to the problem is to find a resistance to problems and live my life fully awake. Learning to trust, and trust ourselves can be a challenge, remembering to put a distance between us and the danger.  Sometimes stuff happens, we have no control over, life can be like a flood, or a snow storm. Myself I had to learn how to reach out to people for help, when we need it. You also have to learn how to dig yourself out when you need to do so. I had to learn control over my own life and recover from fears of no control over different situations. Like illness or injury (something I am dealing with at the moment) we must find a place where we can reach a decision and do everything to become healthy as possible, without spending too much time wallowing in self-pity. I know form my experience my mind is working, the body well that’s another story at the moment.

During the past few weeks, thoughts of reclaiming my body and being able to do what I did when I was a child, I smile to myself at the moment and know that is not possible. But today as I write this I have decided each day is a new day and enjoy the day the best way I can. When I am a hundred percent again, I am going to enjoy myself fully. At times I dream about the feelings I had as a child, playing outside, exploring the country, with no barriers. The joys of being a child against the responsibilities of being an adult, we can put our lives in order and create the images we had as a child growing up. Today I try to treat each day as a new day and declare each day mine.

Around every corner sometimes life can be full of hard knocks, battling through battle after battle and now living in fear of every corner you turn. Somehow you realise no matter what you find the courage to be able to handle your life. But there comes a time when you have to let go and get on with life, be happy.

By reading this you are a survivor and brave, many times I have sat and imagined myself in a place of peace, now I am at peace. Imagination and focusing on a place of peace, you look back at the road you have travelled, you may have stumbled a few times, but now you are at peace the same as me. It is very easy to almost miss your chance at a place of peace. Take a bit of time and look up you might find there is another small hill you have to climb, you are almost there, you will stand at the rise, I know you will, the same as I have had to tell myself lately. Sometimes life passes us by so quickly we forget to take time to capture the picture of our creation in life. Many of us can see our lives in others in some for or other, other may carry bruises or cuts, but that is a testament to our strength and courage. I can see us all now standing at the top of the mountain, celebrating life; congratulate yourself as I have done. I have discovered I am a good climber, are you?

Since I started learning how to say “NO”, I like myself a lot better. Learning how to believe in the word “NO” I have found it an essential part of my life. I can now say “NO” in a distinct way, that it can be way of saying “Yes” to me and leaving me with a positive feeling.

Now as I move on with my life, at times I look back and see how I tried to fit  in, now I just relax and let people see whom I am.  There is an old saying or song “Turn back time” images flash before my eyes when you are busy trying to fit in, now I know about life and people, depression, anxiety, I ask myself the question now, “If I knew what I knew now, would I have tried so hard,” You do find people as you get older that you fit in with, and you are on the real path to happiness, dreams and joy.

Imagine how hard you have worked in life, happiness is bringing a light into your life and you wish to share it. Some of us think happiness is a reward and you claim it when everything is perfect it does not happen that way, it flows with life. We choose the situations; happiness is a series of choices we make in our everyday life practice makes happiness and dreams come true.

There are no guarantees about tomorrow, we realise there is not a lot of people who made it to today. Dreams of today remain the prospect of what is going to happen tomorrow. Tomorrow to me is dream when I am very tired, but you can easily get caught up in tomorrow and dreams of the days ahead and the moments you have. I build on the dreams, I am a dreamer, I love to dream, I love to think and think about life. Anyone can dream, I use my dreams as a stepping stone in life now, and put into action small plans, not living to far forward, I have learned living to far forward can make your life miserable, so I am careful now or otherwise you can be living in the past.

When I first resettled I made to many dreams, I was unable to act on them, believe me I tried. There is a small box in my bedroom of a graveyard of dreams and that is tough to see. So dream when you are willing to act and if you are not willing to act you will see your dreams filter through your fingers.

Let life become a colourful work of art, I have written a lot about dreams in my poetry. Dreams have been and still are an important part of my life.

  1. I have walked your path Barb , it all depends as you shared where our focus is I found the best one is the one below, which is what you also shared.

    Philippians 4 ( 8- 9 ) Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things. The things which you learned and received and heard and saw in me, these do, and the God of peace will be with you.

    Christian Love Always – Anne
