In my ABC book, (click to find out more here)
J is for "Joy", but it could also have been for "Journey".
A is for "Abundance", but it very well could have been "Adventure" instead.
This art piece was a watercolor that didn't get used in my book, and mainly because I just didn't like it as well. I decided to try and play around with some permanent markers I had, very fine tipped, and vibrant/bold colors. I just started working and kept going. The finish product is something I'm quite proud of!
When I showed it to my cousin, Gene, he said, it looks like a map to somewhere.
Aha! Thank you Gene. Yes. This is about a journey. An Adventure. This piece went from an experiment, to the NO pile, to a risk, to a project, to an exciting inspiration to take a leap, and finally to be a donated original art piece for a school fundraiser. That's a journey, just in the life of this piece of paper.
How much more complex are the ups and downs, ins and outs, twists and turns of our lives?
The challenge, it seems, is to see life as an Adventure.
So on the back of this art piece, I wrote:
"Life is a journey... Make yours and ADVENTURE!
Is your life an adventure? Have you run into twists and turns, and if so, how do you navigate them?
