It was fun working with all three mediums on the same concept and is definitely an exercise I will do again. While having fun, I learned a little about painting and alot about myself as a creative person. Who could ask for more?
Then I realized maybe the message wasn't that I should expand more but that I should take a few minutes to recognize and celebrate just how much my world has expanded in the past several years. Since retiring I have met wonderful people from all over the world through blogging. I have taken classes both online and in person on subjects that fascinate me and help me to grow. Many of the classes I have taken on the internet have been free offered by talented people who are sharing their passion and their knowledge. Just the other day my husband and I were able to take a yoga class given by a doctor who specializes in pulmonary hypertension. She showed the poses, along with modifications for people with PH. Now he has the information he needs to begin practicing yoga again safely. It was an incredible experience that can change how he feels every day.
So this week I am very grateful that my world is expanding. I am grateful to the all of the people who help it expand each day. And although I do want to continue to expand what I am doing, this week I think it is enough to sit back and reflect and enjoy just how big my world has really gotten because of all of the wonderful people who have taken the time to share their world with me. To all of you I would like to say, "Thank you!"
I would love to know what you are grateful for this week.
