I have posted this inspiring video before, and I am bringing it back again because it is so good to watch. Also, because it reminds me to honor the artful side of myself. Lately, my life has been full of doctors appointments, scans, tests, traveling, and I have allowed myself to be drawn to the negative aspects of my experience. Today though, I am deciding that even though I need to do some things that are not so fun, I can still choose to focus on what feels good instead of going down that dark scary road of "what if...".
This feel good to me, just to make this decision. So what if I can't quite do all I was doing before. I am asking myself, "what can I do now that I can find delight in?" "What can I think about now that feels good?" Once I get going I can think of all kinds of things that I can do and enjoy, or ways to modify how I was doing something so I can do it in a more healthy way for my body. The more I think about it there are so many good thoughts that I can dwell on! Really!
So I am making a list of all the things I can do... I am making a list of all the good thoughts I can have....
Now, I am thinking about all my dear friends here in Blogland. Many of you have sent me good wishes. Many of you have sent me surprises in the mail. Each and everyone of your good thoughts and hugs have filled my heart and lifted my spirit! I just want to send out a huge hug to each of you and say "Thank You!" from my heart!
So in this video, I am reminded that one thing that feels really good to me is creating art. I can not even explain how much it is core to my being. This song really says it all to me. And I know for sure that I "ought" to!
