Just Sayin'

In the past year, I have been striving for living today living authentically.
I know ... this picture really says it all...

Mamma told me recently, after I had a little stress meltdown during our most recent program preparation:  "Anna Grace, the things that are worth something often take alot of work." There are days when I want to quit... so very much. However, there are daily things that are worth the effort.
I have to constantly remind myself to keep doing the things that will be authentic and that are worth the work... And they are.
Whether it is planning a program for my sisters and myself,  creating little pieces of beauty for the home, or coercing daddy to read out-loud, they ARE worth the effort.....Every time.

Sometimes we think that fun means no work. But the mindset shapes experience and lovely times are to be had if only we seek them out. 
The fun is found in "the today" . Even reminiscing over the past is not as joyous as being in the present. So I hope to better savor the experiences presented daily.

About Me

My photo
I started "Annalogies" as an outlet of creativity for an overly scientific, logically minded life. I love people. I enjoy the simple things in life. My aspiration is that this outlet can allow me to grow in expression. So go with me and grow with me, if you like. I am just a sculpture still in the making.
