SLR 080: Create A Living Masterpiece With Intention

Simple Life Reboot“A great artist can paint a great picture on a small canvas.” – Charles Dudley Warner

What does your life canvas look like?

Are you filling up your canvas quickly, with an array of colors assembled as an afterthought, or are you painting with intention?

When we act with intention, we exhibit a higher purpose, but does this mean we automatically produce a beautiful canvas, a beautiful life?

The beauty of your life is not for me, or anyone else, to define. You are a beautiful creation just as you are, right now.  No addition or subtraction can make you any less remarkable.  But…

The Life You Create Is Up To You

By taking certain actions, we determine certain outcomes.

The part of our lives that creates the beautiful brush strokes comes about every day through the deep love and caring we exhibit for one another.

By listening, spending time with, and caring for others, about their loves, their concerns, their hopes, their fears, and their dreams, we carefully and lovingly apply the paint across our canvas, and encourage others in creating a beautiful canvas of their own.

“The colors live a remarkable life of their own after they have been applied to the canvas.” – Edward Munch

Make It A Beautiful Life

Place the colors lovingly on your canvas, with intention, and your painting will flourish before the eye in brilliant splendor.

Love and care for others, with intention, and in the end you will produce a masterpiece, unique and unparalleled in history.

“My philosophy is that I’m an artist.  I perform an art not with a paint brush or a camera.  I perform with bodily movement.  Instead of exhibiting my art in a museum or a book or on a canvas, I exhibit my art in front of the multitudes.” – Steve Prefontaine
