Words to Live By

"Cease to make demands of this moment".
I was listening to the radio the other day and I regret to say I did not catch the name of the woman who was speaking, she was talking about staying calm in difficult situations, I was only partly listening, but when she said these words I perked up. It made a big impression and I wrote them down. They have become a mantra and I believe they are life changing. I believe that as hard as it sometimes is, loving my life as it is, is my spiritual practice and not making demands, not having to have things a certain way to be happy is part of that practice. I thought you might get some benefit from these words too.
I have been making lots of art, but it is all in pieces, I have boards done and about 50 drawings, but nothing that fits together yet for a collage. I  am having great fun and hope to have something to show soon.
Have a wonderful week. XOXO

Oh wow that hit home hard. I have a habit of making demands of every moment and lists of accountability to tick through at the end of the day. Then I wonder why I'm not feeling fulfilled at the end of the day. Thanks Annie!

I love the synchronicity of that moment when we hear words that have the capability of changing us right in the moment. And those are certainly words we should all heed --

thank you for sharing

and - looking forward to seeing your work --

Hi Annie,
Can't wait to see what you are working on. I've enjoyed my visit - the Rilke poem and your discoveries.

Oh yes Annie! These *are* very wise words. Thanks for passing them along to us. I've written them down, so I can see them several times a day. This is exactly the type of attitude I'm striving to have as much as possible.
Hugs,
xoxoxo
