Still in Progress - Both Me, and the Painting

Monday, April 29, 2019

I keep thinking at some point I'll be done. This is such a falsehood. I will always have to watch my weight. I will always have to be careful what I eat. I will never be satisfied with a painting, there is always just that one more thing that has to be tweaked.

We are so destination driven and even knowing what I do, it is hard to remember that it is the journey that matters. If it doesn't matter to you now, find a way to make it so. Until it does, you won't get where you want to go. Once again, the destination doesn't really matter. It is who you become along the way that does.

This painting is a journey for me. It was an idea that came to me and I had no idea how I would do it. I just decided that I would have to figure it out. My muse tells me to "trust the process," and this time I decided to do just that. It isn't finished yet. In fact it is a lot like me. I don't know where I'm going, I just have to trust the process to get me there, and it is the journey, the process, that matters.

    A little background music, perhaps rain on the car roof, and I could sit with your painting for hours! Yes we are all a work in progress. Thanks for sharing.

    Wonderful painting ... I like it, it speaks to me.

    You are so wise. Life is a journey, if you achieve all you want in life, then what, do you stop living? No, life is the journey. Eating well is part of the journey, eating is part of life. You don't eat healthy until your reach some sort of destination, then go back to old habits.

    I have to "watch my weight too". Even eating differently, i.e. eating Keto, I can still eat too much, but if I need to dial the quantity back, at least I don't have the "hunger dragon" to battle, and you don't either.
