Tis' the Time

We had a time change recently here in California. It caused me to think how time is so precious and can affect us in many areas...

The benefits are lighter days earlier - Yay!  The first week or two, the "springing forward" and loss of one hour of sleep can affect us too.... well, it did for me anyway.

Also, I don't know about you, but I like thinking of things I would like to accomplish, especially in the first several first months of the year.... What do I want to "DO", share with my family, etc.  I call it my "2013 Bucket List" which are items to look toward accomplishing this year... but, heck, if I don't - no big deal.  There are fun things I would like to do with family and friends, items to spruce up for my home, and of course... creative goodness!

I joined the 2013 Lifebook class with Tamara Laporte and LOVE IT! You know what?  Ever since I was a teen ager, I've desired to paint.  I've been a photo enthusiast... and thought, "how cool would it be if I could paint the pictures I've taken?!"  Guess what has held me back? Embarrassed to say... the FEAR of failure... Sheesh!  I am taking baby steps in learning to draw and paint... and am amazed at how relaxing and fulfilling it is to actually TRY!  You really don't know until you take that first courageous step...

Here is my first drawing/painting project with mixed media.  It includes three words that I'm focusing on for this year... Gratitude, Presence and Discernment.  It's only March, I already feel those words making a difference in my thinking... =)
