Share Your World – September 11, 2017

Is it possible we are already into the middle week of September? No? Not quite? But rapidly approaching. Cee has reminded me that a new week is here, and it’s time to share a little more.

Would you want $200,000 right now or $250,000 in a year? It’s safe to assume all money is tax free. If I were younger, I would probably wait the year, but I think I’ll take the $200,000 right now because that money would take me to Tuscany for Christmas, France for spring break, a sandy ocean beach for the summer – and so much more.

Is it more important to love or be loved? I think it’s more important to love – people, your life, where you are – because you get what you give, so giving love certainly assures getting love, right? Besides, I think real contentment comes from the good feeling that comes with loving.

List things that represent abundance to you. Freedom. Forests, oceans, sandy beaches, friends, family, the birds that sing, loving and being loved by my furry girls, music, art, sunshine. Life.

What inspired you this past week? Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination. A petition I was shown this week – the petition was not what inspired the passion that followed, but the wording of the letter accompanying it. But that’s another post. The inspiration was not of the kind that lifts you up and makes you feel good, but it did make me realize one of the main things that gets me aroused.

This week I want to share one of the (few) inks I’ve done recently, this one a peaceful, pastoral view.

    This year is scurrying right along. Wouldn’t it be fun to have that kind of spending money! I have to agree with your abundant list. You have such control with your inks. Nice clouds.

    Can’t disagree with anything you expressed today. I’d take the money and run….because a lot can happen in a year. And Tuscany sounds lovely! You tempered the money questions nicely with your abundant list. And loving….yes, the depth of warmth in your soul when you really love another person trumps all else. Love comes in many forms and sometimes it’s disguised as “tough” love. xoxo
