Todays wisdom card is freedom
Click on the photo to enlarge.
What dose this card say to you?
For me it is freedom of depression.
The art work on the left is how problems can be perceived.
In the past I felt like I ran around with a cloud over my head and lighting bolts striking me in the butt.
Then the storms of life became tornado's surrounding me.
I seem to have chosen to let the web of hopelessness grab on to me.
My hands were removed or bound by extreme situations.
All I could do is to go into the never ending pit of depression.
But I found I had wings on my back. And flew out of the pit .
You may ask how. A simple choice was all that was needed.
A choice to look at life differently.
Like in the bottom row of the card. There are still storms over head.
But there is beauty below. It is a balance of perception.
I place them in cells and choose not to let any of them take over my life any more.
I chose to come out of my inner self of doom and gloom and live a happy life.
To find fun in simple things.
To look at each situation as a moment in time.
And refuse to let any thing grab hold on me again.
If it dose it is only temporary. I feel it and work hard to but it away.
I chose to be strong and do not take on any problem as never ending.
All problems are temporary and will go away.
Worry will not solve any problem. It will only make you sick.
You have to remain strong, and positive to get through any thing.

What do you wish to say yes to?


It is pouring out of me at this time.
Anger has turned into wisdom. And I am now Happy again.
I say yes to happy.
So far I have created 2 wisdom cards. And have plenty of others in the works.
It seems to have started with anger and I painted the Wolf warrior
And all the answers I needed came to me.

I no longer am angry. And I see it now as a lesson learned.
This is my 3rd card I will share with you.
It is self control
And yes, I say yes give me self control.
I was angry because I lost my self control.

I painted on this photo of me , to be a fool.
I am standing at the edge of a cliff in Fort Pain Alabama.
This card is for anxiety, stress, panic, and anger.
When ever you are under stress. remember me dressed like a fool and laugh.
Remember this situation is temporary it will go away.
Smile ,make your self laugh. breath deeply, Calm down. And think happy thoughts.
Or grab a candy bar.

The wise warrior

Click on the photo and take a good look at her.
What message dose she share with you?
This is my wisdom card for today
The lesson for this card is inner peace.
She is insecurity.
We some times hurt her with words like. I am fat, ugly,stupid, etc.
We let mean people hurt her, buy believing they are right.
When really they do not mean what they say.
They just want to inflict pain on others.
Because they are insecure with there self.
When in reality she is your true self. One of a kind.
She has inner beauty and wisdom to get you through any thing.
She is forgiving if only you accept her the way she is.
She is loving, kind and intelligent.
She loves you to feed her with knowledge.
In return she has all the answers you need to live a great life.
So make peace with kind to her, release her from her chain.
And live a wonderful life.

Working it out

Wolf warrior
I just painted this with the Art rage computer program. I use both the oil paint which is in the free version and the spray brush with is in the paid version.
I assume the This is a wolf like cartoon. I am calling it my inner wolf.
I started painting this with no clue what I was painting and it turned out to be a story I would like to share. This was me a few years ago. I was in rage and still growl on occasion. But I was in full blown menopause. I have never felt such anger or rage in my life. I would bite at the drop of a hat. And this is not me. I am a peaceful person. Who wishes to do no harm.
But I am feeling a bit of anger now that I am going to work out. By sharing my story online I may help some one else. And I will release my pain with this writing.
I will let it blow away with the wind.

First off I need to find my happy place in my mind. What make me happy. Thoughts of travel. Thoughts of fun with my family. I need to plan an adventure. But I do not have a traveling partner. So What can I do to try to get hubby involved? Hum?
Maybe a trip to my daughters in her new home. I will try to include a visit to my foster grand son. This is a desire. To see him again. It has been 6 years.

I am going to create wisdom cards
So this is my first one.
Wolf warrior
She is a survivor. who has great vigor, courage, or aggressiveness.
She is self defense.
Has wisdom to protect.
Needs knowledge to know when to back off.
Knows when she is needed.
So she is great when you are ready for her.
Learn to use her with love and great care.
And learn to control her.
As wisdom is needed to be safe.
Do not let her anger rule.
Take deep breaths and eat chocolate to tame her.
Laughter will help too.

The joy diet, what to do next.

I do not know if it is the weather change or the book Since the chapter on truth.
I have been changing in my thoughts. And finding it hard to be happy.
I have not wrote much just been doing art and not much more. I do not even have much to say to those who may call..
I found with this weeks chapter of the book.
It asked for us to list things we hate about people we dislike. And try to make some of it part of our life. I refuse to be unkind, mean. dishonest and unloving. I spent most of my life trying to understand my Mother.
All I can do is feel sorry for her loss. As she pushes every one away.
She gives no love so in turn she receives no love.
I see we are to analyze them, to understand where they come from. But I will not add there behavior to my life.

This book has brought out my suppressed negative side. That I got from her.
And I do not like being this way. SO!
I will not be doing any more posts for the book, The joy diet
This book is not for me.
I will so miss all the wonderful people.
But I feel out of control, like the witch I painted.
I need to take control and find some thing to look forward to. That will help me get through this winter.
When I started telling my self the truth, it became an issue. That I can not find a way out of. There is no joy in that.
The creativity chapter is a wash. And I am up to treats. And I think I will close this book and look for another.
I am sorry this is a negative post. But I had to tell the truth.
I need happy thoughts. And friends who really care.

Best wishes to all.

My art board

This is a collection of my creations from the past 2 weeks.
Some I painted with Art rage.
Some I drew.
Some I used color pencil and water color.
I went ahead with the purchase of the program. I created the bottom green guy with the glitter function in the paid version. I also bought a graphic tablet to be able to draw with a pen on my computer. I have not got the hang of it yet to show any thing.
But It is fun learning. Jeremy my Grandson is having fun with this too. He just started his own blog. So he can show off his creations. His 10th birthday is next Friday. So he is growing fast.

I have decided I am not going to do any more posts on the book the joy diet. This book is not my cup of chocolate. I have already learned joy in my own way.
