IF we practiced radical self-acceptance.
If everything we did we knew was just fine.
If we looked in the mirror each morning and said:
"You are marvelous and you will have a wonderful day today, contributing to humanity."
If each day we added from our inner well of contentment, knowing our unique gift, whatever it may be, is adding to the whole.
Making art alone in a room can feel exhilarating, terrifying, pointless. . . .
but today, I choose to go to the studio and work hard at this, and to accept that this is my calling, and to ignore the critics, who mostly reside in my own head.
(oh, and did I say to love my body, too?)
"The world is perfect. As you question your mind, this becomes more and more obvious." --Byron Katie
