Turn Your Life into a Work of Art
By Rochman Reese and Sofan Chan
What is it that you really want to do? What is your own special dream that you want to live out? Do you believe your life is going to be a masterpiece like the Mona Lisa, or is it some smudged finger painting?
Ultimately it begins with a choice. It begins with a decision that no matter what, you are going to live your life as a work of art.
Michelangelo said that David was already in the block of Marble before he started carving. All he did was to chip away the marble that was imprisoning the sculpture allowing David to be born. So too is it with Your own life. You have a special inbuilt potential to be something truly wonderful, something magnificent. All it takes is two very important things: a dream and actions.
It's just like putting paint on canvas. When Sofan paints, she starts with a clear idea of what she wants to create, a brilliant image shining in her mind. Slowly, one brush stroke at a time is applied until after much time and joy, the painting appears. The wonderful image in her mind comes alive for other people to see and experience.
Every thought you think and every one of your actions is like a brush stoke on the canvas of our lives. To live your life as a work of art it is first necessary to have a clear idea of what it is that you really want to do, and then make the commitment that no matter what, you will take the necessary steps to achieve this dream.
Sadly, most people only know what they don't want to do. They are so busy, so caught up in living their day to day existence, that they are unable to take the time to really think about what they want to be doing. We all need a special dream to spur us on towards actions. It all begins with a dream. Your dream. What is it ?
Knowing what your dream is, is the beginning of living your life as a magnificent work of art. So take the time, think about it. Once you truly know what you really want to do, actions follow, until before you know it, your dream is taking shape all around you.
So over this coming week, take the time to think about what it is that you really want to be doing. Truly ask yourself, are you doing it now? If your answer is no, then you must ask your self why not?
Fill your life with Love, Happiness and Tranquility.
