From my stash of quotes:
“I don’t know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everybody.” – Bill Cosby
Bill Cosby doesn’t strike me as the kind of guy that would worry about pleasing too many people, but he so has a point. Running around trying to please everybody can only make you tired. Sometimes, I get fed up and tired of life’s demands. I just want to put my size 10 feet down and say “Enough! I’ve had it. I’ve reached my limit.”
Sometimes, I put pressure on myself to be someone or something that I am just not. So the pressure I feel doesn’t always come from circumstances or other people. It can come from me because I refuse to accept my limits and take good care of myself. I want to be like I used to be in my 20s and 30s (with the energy I used to have!) and that is just not going to happen! But I can try to be the best I can be NOW.
I must have been in an ‘enough’ kind of mood when I created this journal page.
I realize I’ve got a long way to go with my art journaling. But when I’m not painting or drawing, I like to create a page and try out new ideas and materials. Blah. Blah. Blah.
