Life is what we make it, always has been, always will be. ~Grandma Moses
Many of you noticed that yesterday's post echoes my real everyday life with the exception of a few things. I thought it was very interesting that if money were no object I would choose to focus on being creative in and about my home and doing more. My idea of a perfect day does not revolve around spending lots of money - even if I had it to spend!
Living a wonderful life is not dependent on having a lot of money. In fact, many times having a lot of money hinders creativity. Why make cookies or curtains, for example, when you can just go out and buy them? It is all about personal satisfaction and fulfillment. I like to make things. It's fun to try something new. It makes life more interesting and I become just a tad more self-sufficient each time I do instead of buy.
Life is meant to be enjoyed. Sure the big events are fun, but every-single-day should be special and interesting. Challenges are only a reminder for us to use our creativity. They are not meant to keep us down, but we are to overcome them and carry on!
Grandma Moses was right. Life is what we make of it - good or bad.
Which do you choose?
