Art Journal Day 14-Green


Ah, the color of life, the color of new growth!

As I posted this, I noticed "with" was written instead of "within", so I looked up the quote and found there was more....

“Learn to get in touch with the silence within yourself, and know that everything in life has purpose. There are no mistakes, no coincidences, all events are blessings given to us to learn from.” Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

I'm one of those people that need background noise, be it the tv, radio...whatever. It's difficult to sit in silence for any length of time. Probably like everything else, it's something to be practiced. If you haven't listened to the deep yearnings of your heart, do they silence? Do they return if you are silent? "There are no mistakes", isn't that great?! By misspelling the word, and looking up the quote, more was found. "No coincidences", things happen for a reason....and timing is everything. I sometimes think, "why did didn't I know this sooner"?, or "why did it take so long to learn this"? I wasn't ready. When you're willing to be a learner, you'll learn what you need to when it's time. I want to be a learner..... how about you?
