I Can Reach for the Stars

I Can Reach the Stars

Reach for the Stars all of you.  I have come a long way since I realized that I had it all along. I just had to do something about it.  It isn't always easy.  Scary at times.  But if you try and you keep at what ever you want to do you can do it.   Sometimes what you think you want and what you actually want is really different.   You have to search deep inside.  I am constantly searching and trying to better my life in someway.
Whether it is reading book.  Visiting somewhere that I have never been before. Talking to someone that can stretch my mind and teach me something new. 
I am far from perfect.  I make mistakes!! Lots of them in my lifetime!
But you get right back up and keep on going. 
That's what life is all about.
That's Living your Life.
Live It!!
Don't just let it happen!!! Go out and get it!!!
 
I made a new Owl..... Shhhh don't tell anyone it is a Present for a New Baby....
Shhhhhhhhhh
And don't forget my Owl's will be in the May Issue of Somerset Studio.
Did I mention that before???  wink ;) wink ;)

I have also done some journaling this week in my Old Book Journal.
This has become my favorite journal to journal in!
It's falling apart but it so fun...




I will leave you with what I am listening to right now. This minute!



Have a great week!!!

“What you have to decide... is how you want your life to be. If your forever was ending tomorrow, would this be how you'd want to have spent it? Listen, the truth is, nothing is guaranteed. You know that more than anybody. So dont be afraid. Be alive.”

What a lovely post. I do believe that we all need to reach for the stars too - however difficult it may seem along the way. I think your owl is marvelous. I've been having owls on the brain for a few weeks. Seems I need a bit of wisdom or something

The decisions in life are always ours, sometimes it just takes a bit of courage to go after what we want. I really like your post and all the art you have created. You have been busy.
