I asked myself this question recently... I was in a situation in which several bystanders were turning their backs to something glaringly wrong... I told my friend that I didn't want to be "that" person...The person who reflects later and decides that they would have done something in that situation differently.. I'm living it.

Living a good, honest, full life is where I want to be. Where do you want to be?

What have you told yourself recently?

Notes: The 10x10" journal page in this entry is painted with techniques that Chris and I are teaching in a  brand new workshop called, "Chaos and Calm- Over the Edge Painting Techniques" which starts on July 18th. Early bird registrants will be entered to win original paintings! Click here for more details.
