I've come to realize that I'm an artist at my core. Not an artist in the sense of painting but an artist in the sense that I like to create and design things.
Artists are creating things that we all get to enjoy as part of our lives. It could be a painting, a sculpture, a show, a home, a park or anything else that requires creativity.
In my case I'm a carpenter by trade. I enjoy the process of building homes. Although I do less of the manual work now, it's still an interest to me. Where my focus goes now is towards designing and creating the business. I receive great joy from this process.
But there's one thing that we all get to be the artist of. One thing that we all get to design. One thing that we all get to create...
Who's the artist of your life?
Who's designing it?
Who's creating it?
If your life is not turning out the way you want it, who's fault is that?
I'm not saying that we have control over everything that happens to us. We do, however, have control over what we do with each situation we're in.
Every "problem" is an opportunity.
Become the artist of your life or somebody else will.
