Are You LED Somewhere?
Have you ever been led somewhere?
Your life is going a long OK
and then you are LED in a new direction.
Someplace you're not really sure about,
but you're being told over and over again,
to try that, do that, go there.
Does your heart lead you places?
The other day I was weeding flower beds.
And I was thinking about these questions
Like, why do I always have to be on time?
Why do I need to have order?
What is it about me that wants to give more than is asked?
Are they my "natural tendencies"?
When we consider the how and why we do things,
I think we learn a lot about ourselves.
I'll be painting this soon!
As I look over my natural tendencies,
I realize they are mostly about control.
I already knew that I was a control freak,
but sometimes in all my controlling,
I feel like I have no control.
Is that weird?
Case in point,
I was in charge of a local political event,
and the more I tried to make sure my bases were covered,
the more bases I found to cover.
It's hard to know, sometimes, what to do and worry about,
and what to just let go.
Cause worrying accomplishes so much!
I donated an original painting and some drawing supplies
as a silent auction item at said event.
Another lady, Mary, won the items
and then gave the painting to
Kentucky Treasurer Allison Ball.
She bought the whole basket to give the painting to
because there was a "Ball" jar in the painting.
I would have never thought about that.
I was led to raise funds,
and she was led to give a thoughtful gift.
I guess my point is,
we may all be motivated by the same thing or item,
to do different things with that thing or item.
Whether we realize it or not,
that's creativity at work.
Our inner selves leading us in a direction
that we don't really understand,
but turns out wonderfully when we follow.
I love these lantana.
Maybe I better not notice any more flowers.
I get a little crazy!
Have a great week and let's paint together soon.
