For this new day

imperfect flower

Note to self…

Take a deep breath and face this day. Be open to each moment.  Don’t try to figure out what is going to happen. Stop analyzing what came before.  As so many have said before you, this moment is brand new.

Be real. Be you. Be kind.
Most of all, be kind to yourself.  Remember to breathe.

Remember that no one is perfect. All those little imperfections are part of our beauty.

  1. Words that i needed to hear today, dear friend. i love your beautiful artwork with its intricate details and quiet colors too!

  2. I think these words should be written on a post-it note and attached to my PC where I can read them every morning. Such a simple idea to "be open to each moment" – yet, so much harder to actually practice. Thank you for this encouragement on facing this day. Beautiful use of the pencil sketch technique.

    1. Brenda,
      I have thought of putting them into a bracelet that I can wear all the time…but I haven't the slightest idea where or how to do that. Maybe a tattoo on my forearm….nah!

      We all have those days to face, don't we? I'm encouraged to know that others need these same words.

  3. So glad you shared this because I should be saying this to myself every morning. I have it printed out and am putting it on my computer. 🙂
