well this isn't how i thought i was going to begin my blog post about squam!
i'm just now overwhelmed with the desire to share what i just a few moments ago while chatting with my husband discovered about myself.
i have some strong beliefs about happiness. the most primal to me is that you choose to create your own! i've met many people along the way and have learned this to be so. we can be slung so much negativity, but we can really choose how we respond to it.
what i learned about myself just now is that i feel the calling to help people learn to choose happiness!!!
i haven't figured out yet how i'm going to make this a reality...i just now know that i will!
i also learned
~ i really enjoy being around creative people
~ i really enjoy seeing the process of making something new and beautiful or something old beautiful
~ i love the energy that is present in this environment...safe, nurturing, positive, encouraging and supportive
~ i realized that i'm not an especially creative or a talented artist
~ more importantly i've realized that i'm comfortable with this revelation
~ i've learned that i can still enjoy the process of creating without the pressure or need to create something extraordinary.
~ i can create for the enjoyment of the process, the opportunity to learn something new and for the experience of being with very talented, creative and supportive people that love to create and express themselves beautifully.
~ most of all i've discovered that i want to be the supporting, nurturing, calm, caring person that i know i am and that can be the amazing gift that i give to my family, friends and others that i meet along the way
that is what i'm thinking now.
i'm going to write another post about my second amazing adventure to squam. hoping to have it out this afternoon. thanks to all that have inspired me and help me to come to this conclusion.
~~~sunshine and happiness to you today
