As an artist and speaker, when I learned to adapt to change, not to see problems but rather possibilities, when I accepted that life wouldn’t go according to plan but that I could create something wonderful, then that was when I was truly living every day and seeing every day as a beautiful day, because I didn’t know how many beautiful days I had left, how many canvases I could still paint. It’s more important to focus on what’s in front of you to make it wonderful, and it’s what you DO that matters, not what you think, say or plan. Michelangelo, Picasso, Rembrandt, Mozart – they didn’t create masterpieces by just thinking about it – they made each piece happen, made it a reality.
Your life is deﬁned by what’s in your head – and you are the only one in there!
In a fast paced ever changing world, we often have to step up and respond to challenging events, change, conﬂict or judgement from others. It’s not always comfortable. We have to modify what we put on our canvas, what we include, what we take away and what we ignore, but the choices are ours to make.
