From Left to Right - Marco, Brooke, my Stella and my Tina (aka pointer sisters) sharing the old sleeper sofa I can't seem to get rid of because the dogs love it too much.
This one shows Marco, Stella, Hattie, Brooke and Tina. Marco, Hattie and Brooke are all available for adoption through the German Shorthair Rescue Society of North Texas. All are housebroken, gets along well with other dogs, as you can see and need a forever home.

So here it is again, doing something that scares you...be valuable, be brave.
It's the cosmic question.
Happy Saturday to all and by the way - I love mail - let me know if you've been doing something different - it doesn't have to be scary.

Odd little thing about signs and thoughts and all....So get out of the box and do something that scares you was yesterday's thought. This morning I read Clint Watson's e-newsletter and it features an article by Keith Bond. He writes about Perfect Success. If you're happy with what you're doing right now and continue doing it, then THIS is the same level of success you will continue to experience. But if you want more you have to change something, drastic or small.
Doing something scary and making changes are sometimes very similar, I think. I'll have to think about some of the changes I'd like to make, should make, work on and incorporate to raise my level, my definition of success...
Paint more consistently, organize my mailing lists....
What will you do? I'd love to hear if you are at a happy level of success or are making small/drastic changes to raise the level of success? What will you do?

"Sunflowers in a Blue Vase"
12 x 12 x 3/4 inches, Oil on Canvas
Last week, I was exchanging emails with Texas Artist Laurie Pace when she gave me this advice: Go do something you would NEVER do. Get out of your box... even if it scares you.
Powerful words, that...
There's a wonderful blog I follow which is called "On Simplicity" which is a blog about creating a happier, easier life through simplifying. Saturday's blog was about Four Simple Ways to Make the Most of Your Day. and the first way was to do one thing that scares you...
Hmmmm...is it a sign? I believe in signs. Two similar advice...Do something that scares you.
Well this weekend, I did. I stepped out of my comfort box and did something that scared me. And you know what? It was good...that was this past weekend. Now I'm striving for the next thing that is going to scare me a little. Life is full of baby steps, I know. Baby steps of things that scare me, baby steps of getting out of the box, baby steps of simplifying my life...
