Man stands in his own shadow and wonders why it’s dark. ~ Zen Proverb

I love this quote because it’s so true. What I mean by that is, we are the ones who stop ourselves from doing things we want to do and then we wonder why we’re not happy or don’t have a fulfilled life.

Today I decided that I was going to paint my hallway and living room. I went out, bought the paint and starting painting. I’ve done this before so I didn’t think much of it. In the midst of doing this, I had two friends call and ask what I was doing so I told them. I thought it quite funny when both of their separate responses were “you’re amazing”. Not that I don’t want to hear that but I thought well no, I just grabbed a paint brush and painted a wall.

My point being, I have the will to try. Everyone should get out there and give whatever it is they want to do a try. Don’t stand in your shadow and pout because life isn’t what you want it to be ~ it is up to you to create the life you want….or, in my case, the interior design that I want. ๐Ÿ˜‰
