Life Lessons

 " Living with integrity means:  Not settling for less than what you know you deserve in your relationships.  Asking for what you want and need from others.  Speaking your truth, even though it might create conflict or tension.  Behaving in ways that are in harmony with your personal values.  Making choices based on what you believe, and not what others believe. "        ~Barbara De Angelis

     A life lived doing what others think you should do is no life at all.  The quote above does a good job of summing that up.  Lately I've been asking myself what it is, exactly, that I truly value?  I'm shocked to find that I need to sort it out some more.  Perhaps because I've been letting what other people want determine what I value.  Not cool.

Chickadee Acrylic paint by number

Well it took a couple months but I finally finished this detailed paint by number.  Very tough and made me realize my eyesight isn't what it used to be!

Matted and framed.
