In spite of everything I shall rise again: I will take up my pencil, which I have forsaken in my great discouragement, and I will go on with my drawing. Vincent Van Gogh
I’m dense when it comes to discouragement. Lynn Abbey
Today I wake thinking of you, the smells, the joys, the things you do, so I start to fill the canning jars, bread and butter, dill, sweet pickles, the scent fills the air, reminds me too, what draws you back home to me there, the way you step in morning dew on southern Kentucky blue grass and rye, never losing the smile or asking why, morning glories only sing in the new of day, why geese leave in fall while the rooster stays, crowing his happy song, in southern glory all day long.” – deborahmills – Southern Lullabies © 2016
Vincent Van Gogh, in his living lifetime, sold only 1 painting. He painted over 900 that we know of, but only made money off of one! Yet still he painted his passions, his hurts, his loves. How sad he must have been that people did not think his talent worth a bit of sacrifice. Yet today we all would love to own a Van Gogh, fortunately we all know one when we see one. Michael Phelps, 41, regarded as a great, was told by a teacher in his early years, that he would never amount to anything. How sad, how embarrassed that teacher must feel, and hopes no one knows his name, as Phelps continued on with his passion, his excitement, his love, his desire, no matter what gossip, what criticism, what obstacles came in his way. We all gets discouraged. We all have needs to be fulfilled, a virtual hug if you will. Today Chris Pine informed us that hugs build serotonin in the brain. Appreciation, love, determination is the key. Be sure to share love, and compassion with others today! Dream our dreams with love, harming no other.
Animal totems: aardvark: Bro Aarvark is sometimes called earth pig. His totem has a harder shell on his back, rooting deep down into the earth to receive his answers. His totem seeks success, reminding us that success lies in our inner being at peace. His medicine reminds us that harm ye none as he is gentle always in his actions, even in our effort to be successful
Lady Moon is Waning gibbous with the illumination of 69%. The 3rd house of communication is in Taurus the Bull, so remember to be gentle with our words. The Color Green is a healing color. Use green when we are feeling discouraged.
