The Life I should Be Living!

Do you ever wonder what life would be like if everything went the way you wanted it to? Well I wonder that every single day!!! Lately, especially, I feel like I didn't only drop the proverbial ball, I dropped the whole darned ball factory. Oh well, maybe that is really what life is all about...the coulda, woulda shouldas haunt some of us forever or at least until the coffee and donuts kick in and some of the few lucky ones never question any of their decisions or wonder about the road not taken.
Don't get me wrong I do have absolutely fabulous days when I watch Louise Hay videos on YouTube and pray and meditate until I am floating an inch above the floor all day, but those are not as common as the "other" days!

Well today is a kind of in between day, I did a little housekeeping and just posted a little painting on Ebay so I am feeling "mighty" right now. And here is the little painting for your perusal and opinion. If you are not into folk art this may not be your cup of tea but it is kind of cute in a naive sort of way:

You can see a glimpse of my kitchen table studio in a couple of the photos and yes because of my paint and craft supplies there is not a lot of eating going  on in that room or on that table, but since I live alone who cares!
If anyone is interested in this little gem I just posted it to Ebay

Right now I am saving up to get two little male cats neutered so any art purchases will be going towards that goal!

Thanks for stopping by and please do leave me any comments on how you handle "those" kind of days as I will try anything (within reason) to turn my frown upside down :)

Have a super day and keep on smiling!

  1. Cute little bird!
    My whole adult life is full of shudda, wudda, cudda, so I am not the one to ask, not really.
    Somehow, I don't think I brightened your day, even a tiny bit. Sorry, it's the nature of the beast. I do hope your day gets better, somebody's has to shine!

  2. Those days??? The gloriously happy days are wonderful but when I was young I decided I would enjoy the bad ones too - kind of odd, I know, but I noticed feelings were more intense when I was down or cranky - I could even feel a strong, tingly sensation right to my fingertips, so - I decided I would just enjoy the intensity of it and know the down/cranky would pass as easily as the happy ones do.
    i love your latest painting, by the way!

  3. Hi Tina, I think we all have those days now and then. Life passes so fast, but in the end, there are more good then bad. My not so good times help me to be thankful for the good days. I hope those days pass for you quickly. Love your sweet little painting. Your hands are gifted to create a beauty like this. That makes for a great day!!
    Have a great weekend. Hugs and Blessings, cm

  4. This is delightful! Your little painting is very sweet and calming. Life is about learning to be happy, and growth. We grow from our shoulda's if we take the time to recognize the lesson to be learned. It's all good in the end if we do. The only thing we take with us to the next stage in eternity is our attitude and knowledge. :-) Thanks for sharing your thoughts and art with us.


Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and for leaving a comment. It truly brightens my day to read your thoughtful remarks!
