The art of living


Your good intentions are not enough; you have to be artful.

We may be filled with goodwill; we may be motivated by the desire to make the other person happy; but out of our clumsiness, we make them unhappy.

Walking, eating, breathing, talking, and working are all opportunities to practice creating happiness inside you and around you.

Mindful living is an art, and each of us has to train to be an artist.

  1. Creating happiness inside is the key, I think. When someone else is unhappy with our clumsiness, it isn’t necessarily our fault. They must find their own happiness and be less critical! Just a thought.
    Creativity Is part of being an artist – with all the training, passion and desire to create is everything.

      I completely agree with that thought Judy! We must all concentrate improving ourselves and if we’re irritated by something, it’s our problem, we ought to work on ourselves so it doesn’t affect us because we cannot control or “fix” anyone else to suit us. Like you said, we all need practice, passion and desire to do this 🙂 Thank you so much for sharing with us Judy 😀
