Happiness

He stood in front of the weathered gazebo. The overcast sky, heavy with moisture. A friar stood with him. A best man, a brother, anxiously waited. Loved ones gathered. Happy, joyous. Relieved the skies held their drops.
The music radiated from hidden speakers. A flower girl accompanied by an energetically bored ring-bearer came down the aisle. Pink petals fluttered in the gentle breeze.
One, two, three couples proceeded down the aisle followed by her, the one we all came to see.

Mandala Art

 

Mandala art, I love it. Over the years I’ve struggled with finding a focus on what art I wanted to create. In 2016, I found it: mandalas. I love the design. The details. The creativity.

How much time do you waste trying to change things you can’t? Think about this for one moment. I’ve realized, no matter what I do, there are some things in life that I simply have no control over. I can’t change them. So why bother trying?

After all, trying to make something or someone conform to what I want is a huge time sink.

I’m sure there are number of “things” that would make this list. Limiting it to just three is an easy way to make a post. But personally, these three things are not only the most important, but the easiest ones to stop doing. Take a look:  Continue reading “3 Things You Can’t Change. So Don’t Bother Trying!”
