V is for Vision

When you think of your life right now, is it how you imagined it would be 5, 10, 15 years ago, have you seen the changes that you put in place come to pass today.  Time seems to move faster as you get older or is it just me? and you try and pack so much in to make the most of the time you have. 

You took much more for granted in your younger years and thought you had a never ending supply to dip in and out of at will.  As an artist I have a vision of where I want my career to take me, things I'll create and collaborations that I will make.  I see my son one day starting a family, pursuing his career doing more with his writing and piano and we see the dreams that loved ones have unfold as time goes by.

I celebrate my life today that I can still dream and take steps to achieving those things that dwell in my heart, that I can reach out and inspire and motivate others with words and images.  Are you where you want to be, and what steps do you now need to take?

    1. Yvonne, I am really enjoying your posts, will take a look at W. The gradual changes are the ones you really do need to take notice of so that you can make adjustments before its too late..

  2. I agree that time seems to go quicker and quicker. So does my memory:) I just turned 36 a couple of days ago and I was commenting to my husband that I still don't feel like an adult. Like what I thought being an adult should feel like. Maybe I'll never feel that adult feeling that I conjured up as an adolescent. I think that I'm okay with that. Great post.

    1. Jaime, Happy belated birthday, I know what you mean I think inside the turning point for me was about 36, years on I still feel 36 inside and with the push from society to be forever young its really hard to tell how old someone is anymore.

  3. I believe we are all where we are meant to be. You painting intrigues me today. There's something about the eyes...they're so sad and reveal an uncertain certainty...

    1. When I was sketching it it reminded me of a close friend who passed 2 years ago, I have mentioned her in my posts (Barbara), she was the one who encouraged me to try pastels, she was very good.
