I’ve been reading a book by Pam Grout in which she suggests starting every day with the thought that something amazingly awesome will happen today. What’s cool about this is that you begin to look for amazingly awesome moments in each day as a result. As the old saying goes, “Seek and ye shall find.”
I’ve been having so many amazingly awesome days ever since I started doing this.
Here’s a photo of one such moment: a kookaburra that “adopted” me while I was in Australia. It would land right beside where I was sitting and we would have a “chat”. If I moved to the back verandah, it would follow me there. If I went inside the house, it would hop along the railing so it could see through the open door and watch what I was doing. It would fly down and land beside me as I was hanging laundry.
Amazing…and awesome 🙂
What amazing and awesome things have happened to you recently?
I’m not American. I don’t live in the United States. I didn’t vote in the election. In fact, right now I’m on the other side of the globe.
However, I did hear the collective gasp that reverberated around the world following the election results. And I continue to hear fearful comments today.
Now, more than ever, it’s important to focus on joy and possibility. Find it within yourself, your day, your world. Cherish and appreciate the moments of joy and beauty. Share your joy through images and words so that others may feel uplifted and inspired.
We are all connected. Let’s choose to make the connection a joy-filled one. And, yes, it does make a difference.
I’m filled with joy and gratitude today. Someone wonderful wants my pencil case 🙂 As a designer, there’s nothing more exciting than finishing a creation and finding out that someone else loves it as much as you do!
Here’s another card design. I’m having a lot of fun creating them! Can you tell?
Tree of Love ~ escherly 2015
By the way, I design under the name “escherly“. It’s a tribute to M.C. Escher, the Dutch graphic artist who has been an inspiration to me for years. If you’re not familiar with his work, do check out the link. It’s amazing.
