For example - 'Will I get up early and do some excercise?' 'Will I stay home tonight or go out?' 'Shall I get started on that new project?' 'Will I ring that person I like and suggest to meet?' etc etc
All these daily decisions come together to form our life path. There is no right or wrong in most cases. The important thing is to take ownership of your choice - make sure you give yourself the time and thought you are worthy of. Trust your instincts, listen to the whispers of the higher self, stay focused on the bigger goals. Don't stray too far from the path too often, but don't either be too fearful or constrained. A lot of the best things come from a leap of faith. Something new, something challenging, something bold.
One of the reasons I enjoy writing this daily blog is because I make little choices each day - what picture to put up and what to write. Why am I saying this or that? Sometimes it is thought out a little but often it's spontaneous.
I am interested to see what appears and on occasion track my entry tendencies and consider. I have stated in my brief header-manifesto that I want to contribute something of value so that myself and others can learn and enjoy. Sometimes I wonder if perhaps I should be a little more formal or ordered with my posting. But, nah, this is not my style. This is not how I live. I enjoy creating in the moment - letting loose and allowing nature to take it's course. From a creator's point of view it's much more exciting and, although the results vary widely, it is more fulfilling. Suits my style. It's how I live, too. No plans, take it as it comes, live in the day.
One thing I have been thinking lately is that I need to be honest and also try and hone in on what is the true essence of the message I am trying to uncover. We learn and grow from understanding - insights come from courage to uncover and disclose then contemplate, comment and consider.
Of course, my aim is to contribute something of substance and value. I appreciate my life and am grateful to be able to live the life of an artist and free spirit. It's a tough world and it isn't easy for anybody. It's sharing with each other - in whatever form comes naturally - that offers us salvation and relief. We all suffer, all do it hard at times but somehow, we can ease our pain, dissipate it, through sharing; thoughts, activities, food, kindness, laughter, love...
This is one way I share. Through my art and through my words. It's not from ego. It's not for me. It's for everyone. From the heart and mind of an ordinary man. Trying to find his way. Trying to be true.
