Blog Your Blessings Sunday--Art
My subject for the Blog Your Blessings Sunday post is ART! I'm blessed by having an eye for beauty, for enjoying the creative process, by having friends who are artistic, and for my appreciation of ALL kinds of art.
When I was in high school, I received a full scholarship to a prestigious art school, but my family forbade me to take the scholarship for fear of my being alone in New York and too far away. It was in my despair at having lost out on this marvelous opportunity that I changed direction and eventually graduated with a degree in journalism.
Writing isn't my first love, but it has served me in my life, and I've learned that as long as I'm creating--whether it posting on a blog, taking a photograph, painting, dancing, or singing--I'm blessed to have the creative energies flowing through me.
Art brings me JOY, and when I'm joyous, I facilitate joy in other's lives. And I'm so appreciative of other artists who bring me great joy every day.
"If all you did was just look for things to appreciate you would live a joyous, spectacular life. If there was nothing else that you ever came to understand other than just look for things to appreciate, it's the only tool you would ever need to predominantly hook you up with who you really are. That's all you'd need." Abraham
