The Secret of Contentment

contentment-watermark

Today’s quote is from my latest art journal page, and the quote itself is actually from a Teesha Moore collage sheet

“The secret of contentment is the realization that life is a gift, not a right.”

I also have a related “says me” quote on the page…

“Gratitude for all life is the secret to being happy.”  says me

Listen to the people around you today and see if that isn’t true.  Those who are cranky and grumbling are often disappointed about what they didn’t get, while those who are happy and cheerful may not have better circumstances, but choose to focus on what they do get.

What do you think?

This is a page out of my junk journal.  They are so fun to work in.  It is also an example of the playful whimsy that will be the theme of workshops coming up in November at Tessera Fine Art Gallery.  Be watching for them!
