THE WORLD NEEDS YOU
Whether it’s sharing your vision through photography, your voice through writing, or your experience through creating albums and scrapbooks, what you see, say, and express matters. You never know when something you create or express will be the very thing that another creative soul needs to see or hear at that very moment.
PART OF YOUR WORLD
Today I had one of those moments when I received a message from a reader. I sat back and thanked God for letting me share my heART with you through this blog… and felt sincere gratitude to you for reading, responding and letting me be part of your world.
Here’s the beginning of the message I received…
POWER TO MOVE PEOPLE
The email went on to say how the reader got the courage to enter an online photo contest and was a finalist, which resulted in thousands of people seeing her work and numerous comments and accolades that bolstered her esteem and confirmed that sharing her heART was worth it! At the end of her message, she wrote:
Messages like these make it all worthwhile—knowing that one more creative person has been encouraged to pursue their passion, reach for their goals, and conquer their fears.
What will you share with the world today? One image? One thought? One experience? I’d love to hear it in the comments and see your confidence shift as you recognize and embrace the unbelievable power you have to move people with your “great work.”
THE STORY BEHIND TODAY’S IMAGES
Today’s images are of two paintings that my younger brother created as a gift to my son. He envisioned, drew and painted an entire series of 4 rainforest canvas paintings in one weekend. He has a gift, an incredible, amazing, breathtaking gift for art.
He’s working as an engineer. I know he uses his creative mind and vision in the work he does, but I long to see him become the painter and artist I know he could be. It may not be his path, but when he paints and others see his work, they are moved. Yet the world will have to wait to see the beauty he sees.
Don’t make us wait too long for you.
