Working Together

I believe in lifting others up.

I believe in friendships
and partnerships 
and teamwork.

I believe the best way to grow 
as a human being
is to love one another
by embracing our differences
 and recognising that it's
because of our unique styles,
personalities and beliefs
we can become who we're meant to be.



I choose to be kind
and
loving
and 
positive
and
joyful
and
optimistic
and cheerful.

I choose to lift up
rather than
tear down.


Throughout the 2 years I've written "Words of Me Project" I have had several series of posts where I interviewed fellow artists..."Make My Monday" or promoted a favorite blog I followed..."Who Do You Follow?"


I am a HUGE believer in building one another up.


So many times women in a creative position will allow jealousy to ruin a friendship.
Many years ago that very thing happened to me. Someone I considered my best friend became very successful in the scrapbooking world. While I was sooo very happy for her...she became nearly unbearable to live with. All the "fame", jobs and hoopla went to her head. To this day we no longer speak. It always makes me sad...



One of my goals with my blog is to promote YOU. I continue to be amazed at all the talent in this world of ours. So many of YOU have uplifted me by your comments. I can feel your love:)


Yesterday on my Face Book fan page I did a little experimenting...I posted that today was Share Thursday and asked you to share links to your blogs, your artwork, anything. I was absolutely thrilled when a few of you did just that!!



So beginning today and everyday...PLEASE feel free to post your Blog links, give aways, artwork, ideas, etc. on my  Fan Page. Let's talk and learn and grow together!!


"Alone we can do so little;
 together we can do so much."

  5. Dear Leslie-you are so so supportive and encouraging to others...we all feel that! I am sad to hear how your friend became...overwhelmed. Oprah has said that fame magnifies the person you are so whether you are kind or selfish or...fame just makes that very quality that much ...amplified.
    Regarding your previous post...I read it last week but had no time to comment. We all feel fear...it's human and "normal" and healthy. I think what i fear the most is...not having any faer at all. It means i am not growing and challenging myself...complacency is the thing I fear! I am so very very proud of you. Look at you!!! Your art is beautiful and you are facing your fears head on by...painting! That's the secret to banishing them...just keep
    on keeping on. xxx
