Being a human is quite the ride. I’m keeping my knees flexed these days.

BAD! Kitty Art Studio

Quotes that reflect what’s on my mind:

The world has a way of giving what is demanded of it. If you are frightened and look for failure and poverty, you will get them, no matter how hard you may try to succeed. Lack of faith in yourself, in what life will do for you, cuts you off from the good things of the world. Expect victory and you make victory. Nowhere is this truer than in business life, where bravery and faith bring both material and spiritual rewards.

~Dr. Preston Bradley


Positive thinking by itself does not work. Your embodied vision, partnered with vibrant and energetic thinking, and balanced with active listening – will clear the path for your Miracles.

~Sumner Davenport


If you hear a voice within you say “you cannot paint,” then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced.

~Vincent Van Gogh


If you want to something you’ve never had, you’re going to have to try something you’ve never done.

Nuff Said.

Have a grand day,
