I've been writing them down in journals for years and love to find artwork with quotes decorating it. Here are just a few of my favorites:
"What you love is a sign from your higher self of what you are to do." ~Sanaya Roman
"It's never too late to be what you might have been." ~George Eliot
"If I had my life to live over, I would start barefoot earlier in the spring and stay that way later in the fall. I would go to more dances. I would ride more merry-go-rounds. I would pick more daisies." ~Nadine Stair
The first two quotes have helped me realize creating art is what I NEED to do. The third makes me just want to relish life every single moment and just do the fun stuff that many think only kids still do. The quotes on their own haven't been making me take things one step further, but the amazing community I have been recently blessed to be part of has encouraged me to put those dreams into action. To follow my heart. To feel like I can fly. Let me backtrack a bit: I finally took the e-course Flying Lessons by Kelly Rae Roberts and this is where I have found this amazingly supportive and caring community. The class ended months ago and these beautiful women are still here cheering each other on. Every day. All day.
Even before this class, many of my paintings and collages have had sweet birds and butterflies in them. They are amazing symbols of whimsy, joy, flight and all that is happy in life.
The little 5 x7 painting was done after the course was over but was inspired by my new friends that are part of my community of creative gals.
So, to them, my "fellow flyers" I want to say thank you for encouraging me to follow my heart and to believe that I can fly in my own way.
Do you have any favorite quotes or little phrases you live by that help you on your path of life?
