One of my favorite affirmations...

Share --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
and one I have been spending much time reflecting on recently.   I think I heard this quote for the first time watching or reading Wayne Dyer...

As you can see, I worked on this digital illustration for awhile, and thought I was finished with it in the first more turquoise version, but then a couple of days later revisited it and ended up with the one you see directly below this paragraph, which I personally prefer.

Next time, when you are feeling like you've received more than a normal helping of bad news, try changing the way you perceive your misfortunes....and you may find you're counting your blessings sooner than you think!

Change the way you look at things, and the things you look at change. - Wayne Dyer

BOTH are just wonderful, Trudi! My favorite saying is: "When life give you lemons, you make lemonaide!" Can't tell you how many times I've used it over my considerable lifetime!!! Bet this would be superb on fabric (hint, hint!!). Hugs, Terri xoxo

You are right. That is a wonderful quote. I forgot about that one-it makes sense and I must remember to use it and think of it more often.

Your digital to match is also wonderful. Keep rolling!
