Grow

Once upon a time a very long time ago, I was going through a rough time and it was an especially rainy spring. So much rain fell that spring that my city dealt with floods, which is very rare for where I live. I was complaining about my life and the rain, when a dear friend of mine spoke up and said, “Rain makes things grow.”

Spring Showers

I’ve never forgotten her words that day and how true they have proven to be throughout my life. The garden outside my house always looks happier and more colorful after rain water. And in my life…it seems that whenever I come out on the other side of hard times, I’m stronger and happier than before. This isn’t a blanket statement, obviously its not going to apply to every situation in life, but no matter what troubles come our way we must grow in order to overcome them and survive them. So, as you face the hard times that are bound to come your way at some point or another, hold onto the hope that you will grow from this and gain strength. ❤

Artists Do It Better

According to Merriam-Webster Dictionary …

Simple Definition of artist

  • : a person who creates art : a person who is skilled at drawing, painting, etc.

  • : a skilled performer

  • : a person who is very good at something

I’ve always struggled with calling myself an artist for the simple fact that I never felt that I was all that “skilled” at anything. Whether its writing, drawing, painting, photography…I’ve just never had that much confidence in my own “work.” Even now, I use a lot of quotation marks when referring to myself and things I’ve done. Like most people, I am my own worst critic.

However, there are those that would argue that anyone that creates something of an artistic nature is an artist. In that case, I guess I could be considered an artist. All I know for sure is that I am definitely creative. Whether or not I create something that others will enjoy is not for me to say. One thing is for sure, there are some truly incredible artists in Second Life and its evident in their beautiful creations as you can see below. ❤
