Life is a Gift

I've heard that tragedies come in sets of threes.  I don't know about you, but there have been many times in my life when I've stopped counting!  Sometimes sad news travels in packs of three, sometimes as singular occurrences, and sometimes the bad times seem to just keep on rolling with no regard for the "three" rule.  It's at times like these that one can easily slide into a "the world sucks" mode. 

I find myself guilty of this from time to time.  It doesn't take much effort to give in to the temptation of feeling down and believing that life is all about sadness.  It takes a great deal more effort to remember the things that are good and precious about our existence.  

Our family, our friends, and our dreams, those are the things we need to focus on and remember when that old sadness comes creeping in.  It's important to believe that life is a gift.........
Chocolate helps too :)

I think it's alright to feel sad sometimes. It would be difficult not to in this world. I have found it helpful to give it a time limit. I will be sad for 5 min, an hour . a day whatever and them I will move on.Your art speaks from the soul so you may be more open to all of life's feelings. You create very beautiful Art.
