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.

Two things I chant to myself to get through difficult situations:
"This, too, shall pass" and "If He brought you to it, He will bring you through it."

You have found some a unique way to conquer your demons.

Your inner strength comes through strong and clear. Your wings will carry you through. Enjoy your grandkids - they are growing so fast! Little Jozelyn will be walking before you know it! Nathan, our youngest is trying awfully hard, but he's not quite ready yet (he's just 9 months). The grandson in my last post was Adrian - he will be two in December.
Hugs - keep up those happy thoughts.

Sorta off topic, but I thought of you when I ran across this! Have you ever heard of or seen "zentangles"? Check out the website, you are talented, so this might be up your alley. I am thinking of giving it a try myself.

Well done, so many can relate to these feelings and worrying over that which we cannot change is so debilitating. I try to take one step at a time and my motto is "create something beautiful every day" - however mundane, you just have to spot it.

Hi Grammy! I love your wisdom card. I want to do some but I'm not sure how to start. I don't know much about art and the different types of supplies, but I am always inspired by you because you come up with such a variety of sytles and pieces of art.

I hope you are well!
