We are so often consumed with day to day rituals and responsibilities, to truly realize what a gift we have been given. The Gift Of Life. It is not important how the gift is packaged, but the package itself. Life is the gift and how you choose to live your life is the art. Do you embrace the life you have been given or do you challenge it?
When you look at a painting, you may appreciate the colors, the technique, or simply the image on the canvas. It gives you pleasure, amusement, or even contentment. That in itself is a gift. It does not know what it has given to you, nor does it ask for something in return. It just is. That is the art. When you give your attention to someone that is also a gift. How you give your attention to someone is the art.
Life offers you the opportunity to make choices every day and the privilege to live your life to its fullest. That’s not to say that some days may be more burdensome than others, but it is how you approach each challenge….. that becomes the art.
As quoted by Edgar Degas. “Art is not what you see, but what you make others see.”
Live your life. Let others appreciate the art in you!
