Don’t be “poor me” Wimpy!

Joyfilled Thoughts I 12x12 acrylic $500

It’s so easy to look at your artwork piling up and get discouraged.  I know when I’m not feeling good or I’m tired I get the “poor me” wimpy attitude. I don’t get that way much anymore just when I’m vulnerable.  I bet the same goes for you.  I’m blessed beyond belief but if I focus on the thing that isn’t going so good, it becomes much bigger than it needs to be.  Then everything is covered with a gray look.

But I can’t be defeated because I have a mission given to me later in life and that is creating art to bring up the energy in the world.  I need to put on the armor of God and be strong and determined.  Okay now that I’ve had this little talk with myself I can breathe in the energy to keep on keeping on.  No more “poor me” wimpy!  Are you up for the challenge?

  1. SOOO True! I’m with you no more “Wimpy” me. You teach me something every time you post on your blog. Thank you.

  2. I love your little talk with yourself! Someone told me once that feeling sorry for yourself is one way of comforting yourself-so I think doing it for awhile is OK (and then in a little while you need to rally yourself with “the talk.”)Thanks Lori – I do hope we get a chance to meet some day!

  3. Dear Lori, very nice to meet you! I got into your very well done web site, and watched the video, it felt like fresh water to my soul! Thank you for sharing your thoughts, you self with humanity…

    1. Katushka, Thank you for your encouraging words. Forgive me have we met person to person? I go to many networking groups and meet many people. I love coffee too as posted on your blog. I love to hear from fellow travelers on the artistic journey.
