monday motivation - intention

I made a promise  to live more from intention and less from habit.  Having my sketchbook with me is a good habit but my intentions are to design, create and inspire an artful life.
 After a beautiful weekend full of love and feeling proud of my accomplishments in sharing my new studio and my artwork I realized that all of this would not be possible without the promise to live more from intention and less from habit.

Are you living your life as a creature of habit or are you living from intention.  
We can design and be the change we want.  

Thank-you again to each of you who took the time to visit me in my new studio.  I had one young visitor come both days of the open studio tour.  To me, my intention is not to impress but to inspire.
I felt such joy to know that this young budding artist was so inspired to return to see me.

I would like to wish one special reader all the best in her journey upon retiring and this new day be full of promise to live a life of intention.  Patti, enjoy today and living with the promise of intention.

Such a lovely emerald world captured in the photo. How lucky you are to live among all that luscious verdancy.

Visiting your site makes me feel at peace.

I'm happy your tour was a success! Making a difference in a young artist life is the icing on the cake I imagine! I think I'm living me life in habit....I'm a creature of habit...I need to step out and live with more intention! Happy Monday !

So glad your open house was successful. It had to be because of your open heart.

I have to admit I'm a creature of habit all the way around. So your advice is good for me to start living a little more from intention. Glad to hear your open house was a success.

What a beautiful quote and the show at you new studio was amazing. I loved it. Fantastic job! I'm so happy for you in your new space.

I'm a creature of habit but do like to learn and am learning every day. It makes life an adventure. And yes we must live with the right intention in our hearts and in our actions.

Congratulations!! Following set intentions is not so easy as it would appear--that walking on water thing is rather difficult. I usually find my feet are still about 1 ft. under the surface. Thank you for your intention. Mary

I agree, for the most part, but don’t you feel as if the issue is more complex than that?
