Your Canvas

Did you know?
You are an artist. We are all artists.

And this life we are living in, right here right now. That’s our canvas.

What we decide to do with that canvas is our choice.
It’s our choice to wake up each morning and paint something beautiful.

To see the beauty, the good, the extraordinarily ordinary moments… and embrace them until they become a vision on our canvas.

If you mess up, even better. Because life’s not meant to be perfect. And we all have a different way we want our canvas to look. It’s not about being perfect. It’s not about staying within the lines of “what looks good” or what’s “right.”

It’s about grabbing that paintbrush, closing your eyes and saying, okay God, work through me. What will you have me paint today? Then seeing what happens from there.

What happens when you let go of the control and give it up to a higher power?

A beautiful piece of art.

“Our biggest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our biggest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine…and as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.”
