  1. Stunning art work – really lifts me 🙂

    and of course, the words are wonderful too – although I struggle with the aspect of giving and being kind, and the keeping on with it, because it’s my nature, when faced with an onslaught of meanness, pettiness, greed, cruelty and jealousy.

    • Oh my dear, that’s the time that giving becomes the most important, not just for those you give to, but for yourself. As you are faced with so much nastiness in the world, it is natural to start to feel worn down by it, and instinctively feel you need to be nasty back, but meeting those who are less than kind with compassion is the only way we can lift ourselves from that cycle. Reaching out to those in need, helping others, while never expecting anything in return…these are the things that will calm your mind and fill your heart. Once you begin to feel love and compassion for these people, it will free your soul. I feel so sorry for people who are mean, they miss out on so much love in this world. Don’t become one of them, keep your heart open, give to others….it can change your life. ♡♡

      Thank you so much for the complement, I’m so glad you liked the drawing.
