A Spoonful of Wishful Thinking {34/52}

Yesterday was my birthday and I began the day with a spoonful of wishful thinking and a dash of imagination. My husband and I were sitting on the back porch with a cup of coffee and the clouds were so deliciously fluffy that they looked like cotton candy floating around in the sky. So I started imagining what it would be like to pluck them out of the sky and this image began to form in my mind. There was no better way to spend my birthday than spending the day with my family AND creating a piece of art. It is my favorite thing to do, after all.

Then I started thinking about the future and what it might hold for me. I wondered what I will do once I complete this 52 week project. I really don't know. I hope to write a book and share my work with the world. I hope to create art that is innovative and mind opening. I want to work on projects that are more intricate with hidden details that will leave you lingering for hours to see what you'll find. I want to inspire you to open your heart to the endless possibilities of the world and to believe in yourself. To believe that you can do anything your heart desires. Because you really can.

It's no secret that life is unexpectedly short and with all the loss and sadness lately, it really puts into perspective how precious life is. So, live life fully... live it however you want. After all, it's YOUR life. If you want to create art... do it.... if you want to write... do it.... if you want to start your own business.... do it! Your life is only limited by your own imagination. And I swear to you, if you can imagine it, you can make it a reality. I know I've said these things before, but I don't think it can be said enough. A constant reminder to you and to myself. The secret to life... the secret to happiness.... lies in your own hands.
