Do you ever "those days" when you wonder
I Certainly Do.
Today I was following some links and came across this image and it immediately grabbed me.
I said to myself ...Self, this is a most excellent thing to remember!
If I start comparing my self, my art, my blog, my business, my philosophy to someone else's then I hit that wall that says...why bother.
Most of the time I manage to corral self comparisons, yet, being human, sometimes it is difficult. As I have aged I think I have learned, somewhat, to control the urge. Because those thoughts are self defeating. Luckily those are days in the minority...but when caught unaware by those insidious thoughts I find I am left with a terrible taste in my mouth and as the awful question pops up to ask ...why bother?
So strongly did the statement call to me I followed the image link and discovered the artist has an Etsy store. Her name is Valentina and her shop is called Valentina Design. I have always been drawn to pen and ink work and Valentina's intricate designs are a joy to behold. But aside from her drawings, this piece she created with it's message, spoke loudest to me. It should speak loud to all of us who have "those days".
I need to pin that saying to my inspiration board.
Happy Friday lovely bloggers.
No matter where you are, no matter how near or how far,
you are dear to my heart.
