It always amazes me how art and life often are teachers of the same lessons. Like a painting will have many layers that peek out and give base and balance to art, life too is made up of a layering of experiences giving you your own uniqueness. These layers are made up of moments. Moments that when “painted together” give us the many layers that form our beauty and our strengths.
Often we don’t appreciate the little moments of life and instead rush forward to what we see a big moments, yet without the base of the little moments the bigger ones would have no foundation. Just like many little things that make a piece of art are not always appreciated and yet without them the piece would not shine.
We need to live in all our moments both large and small and appreciate each one with gratitude, because every moment is as important as another in the fabric of life. Planning and dreaming of the future is great but so is the here and now. We must be careful to not become so focused on the future that we skip through the every day moments. Be grateful you have these moments, as there are people who would envy you the moments you throw away.
Being authentically here in your life is really the best way to honour yourself and your gift of life. Be involved in your daily moments and absorb each layer of the painting of your life. Every detail, every colour is yours and yours alone. No one else can paint your life and no one else will every have your exact moments so beautifully layered into what is ultimately your own piece of art
