Hold strong … the love of the arts

Art and the soulI am an artist

I support the arts, I love the arts – I am artsy! What can I say, while I was working in the business world, I was always craving something else, “what was missing?” I would ask myself? As it turned out, it was my artistic side that was not being fueled.

Working with artistic types is so different. So much passion for what they do, in fact I have so much passion for what I do (or am trying to do) now.

Challenges TaoChallenges Soul

As I add another year to this ongoing saga I like to call my life (yup, another birthday), I look back to see what I have learned and all the experiences I have had. Sometimes it is hard to see all the good that has happened because life has thrown so many challenges my way – I never imagined how much I could be tested over such a short period of time, “why me?” I often ask myself.

Can people really change?

Change People 1Change People 2

I don’t know if people can change their fundamental personality but they can definitely change their behaviour.

How often have you tried to change somebody or have them try to change you? You can spend a lifetime trying to do this but to no avail, and this can be draining on both parties.

Soulmate … Soulfriend, Kindred Spirit

Aristotle

Soulmates2

People often talk about soulmates, but what about “soulfriends”?

While I mentioned in a previous post that I don’t believe in that single soulmate, I do believe in the principle of a soulmate, so the thought of a soulfriend is equally intriguing and also heart warming at the same time. One of the quotes above suggests that this person could be a friend, sibling or even a parent or child.
