Values

WIP
Sometimes when things are reduced to black and white one can see values much better.   Colors often confuse the sense of how dark or light something appears.
 
Life can be the same.   One can get caught up in the business of living and become confused about what is valuable.  Perspective gets lost and so we fail to see what is important.  We miss golden opportunities to connect not only with our loved ones but the stranger on the street.

As this new year unfolds I am hoping to see those values more clearly.    Wishing the same for each of you my friends.   Please have a blessed week.



Hugs Debbie

  1. Debbie, this is very profound. You have expressed in a different way what I see as my goal this year - organizing my days and weeks, making time for what is important to me (my "value). Ultimately I'm hoping this will facilitate more painting time as well as home organization by the end of the year! Life seems to get more complicated and busier all the time; we do need to find our proper values!

  2. Yes indeed. Many artistic lessons can be applied to life - and then we'll live it for the better.
    Hugs to you xx

  3. I hope everything is alright in your world - I sense from your post that something is amiss. I try to keep my life in balance - an ongoing task that doesn't always work. For sure, not everything is black and white.

  8. Bonjour chère amie,

    Une belle façon effectivement de remettre en question les valeurs avec le noir et blanc...
    Remettre les valeurs de la vie est une belle profondeur. Se mettre en question fait parfois beaucoup de bien.
    Merci pour votre gentil petit mot et à la pensée particulière concernant les victimes de l'attentat à Paris.
    Gros bisous ♡

  18. Absolutely true, Debbie. It's easy to be distracted by the abundance of life, and to forget or pass over what's most important.

  19. This is so true, Debbie, and very well said. I think our busy world today encourages multi-multi-tasking, and it's so easy to give every decision and every task the same high priority. When we can't rein ourselves in, at times, fate seems to do that for us and shows us what is truly important in our lives.

  20. Very well said, Debbie! I hope all is going well for you, and your family.

  21. I do like your painting, I thought it was a photograph until I looked closer.
    I hope you have some good plans for this year, to do what is important and worthwhile and has value to you.
    I picked a snowdrop, so looking forward to the spring flowers, my bulbs are all peeping through green shoots. It seems much to early but never less gives a nice feeling that spring is not so far away.
    Wishing you the best for 2015.x

  32. Isn't it interesting how many important concepts there are to be learned from an artistic journey, and not all of them about creating art at all? Nice post.

    ReplyDelete
