Tending the garden of the heart - Day 48
If you missed Part 1, click here to go to the article on the street artist named Posterchild to see his creative imagination at work.
People would go to purchase their daily newspaper at these once filled newspaper boxes. After time has gone by, worn out and old, these boxes stand empty, until someone came along and saw that even though the boxes were out of use for holding newspaper, they were not totally out of commission. It took some imaginative wheels turning to get them back to serving a different purpose.
No matter where you are in life or how old you may think you are, you are not out of commission. You are the creative imagination in your life. Step back and take a good look at you. As long as you've got breath, you still have purpose.
Are you feeling worn out like these boxes? Like Posterchild, change your perspective of how you see yourself, your abilities, your experiences and your life. You may not be used in the same capacity as before, but you still have plenty of value available in you if you choose to look at all of you from a different angle.
No one has your characteristics, personality, viewpoints and experiences. Your uniqueness belongs to you. Look for ways to bring out this inner beauty and present them in a way that will make others stop and smell the roses in your flower bed.
