Don’t be “poor me” Wimpy!

Joyfilled Thoughts I 12×12 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?

    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!

      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.
