Life is pure adventure, and the sooner we realize that, the quicker we will be able to treat life as art.
– Maya Angelou
Life is a canvas, shaped by what’s in your soul, the environment you’re in, your decisions, and your interactions with others. An individual, unique work of art. How can you change what’s on that canvas, that art of you?
- Slow down. Take the time to experience all aspects of your life.
- Be present. Truly use all of your five senses. In fact, when sitting, purposely go through each sense and experience what it is telling you.
- Add new experiences and knowledge to the canvas. Take risks.
- Just as an artist mixes paints and even media, think about how the various aspects of your life are mixing together.
What will you add to your canvas today? This year? What will your life’s canvas eventually look like?
