What matters?

Today I sat in a room full of high school seniors. I heard laughs the words scared and hard work. All this emphasis on passing a class, graduation parties and over the top celebrations.

And then it hit me, the one who’s reading Think and Grow Rich, graduation and passing a class doesn’t matter all that much.

How you dress or what kind of phone you have doesn’t matter. Ok I’d be a fool if I didn’t agree that having an iphone could help you.

What matters is what you do with what you’ve been given. But that’s just it, it’s what you decide to give yourself.

We can’t just walk around going from class to class fullfilling a script. Every day is a choice to give ourselves an opportunity. Yes grades are a refelction of this but not always. “I’ve been working hard”, they say. Shouldn’t you always? Yes! In a wise and wonderful way you must always do your best!

And so I sit here and ponder what I’ve done since the day I set sail. I’m still on a journey, still planning. I’ve got lots of books to write. I did write Wise Trees and I know it’s good.

Now’s a good time to go practice my Live your story Poem. I should have finished the book as a graduation book. It’ll be perfect for back to school.

I have all these stories and use color, texture and nature to bring them to life. My favorite supplies are watercolor, acrylic, and fun tools. I just want to create.
