Embrace Life - Behind and In Front

Today's Lesson From The Craft Room:  If You're There, Be There Mind And Body.  If Not, Consider Just Not Being There

Today's lesson came from a friend's facebook page and the message really resonated with me.  Life is too short for us to engage in activities with half a heart (or mind, or body).  If we aren't really "present" somewhere, then why are we there at all?  What would your life look like if you allowed yourself to say "no" or to walk away from situations where you are not "all there?"  What if we allowed ourselves to spend our precious moments only on those things that engaged our hearts, minds and bodies?  It can be easy, especially today, to do so much without really being there.  With technology it seems, we have grown to believe that we can talk, drive, eat, put on makeup, listen to music all at the same time with our attention divided all over the place.  By doing so, not only do we suffer, but so does the person we are pretending to listen to, the drivers we are half paying attention to, the artist who created the music to touch us...Today, what can you give your full attention to?  Today, if you can't be there mind and body will you consider just not being there?

Today's card was fun to create - just random stamping of the flower from the Embrace Life stamp set to create the background and focal image.  The greeting is from Kind & Caring Thoughts.  I added just a touch of glitter.  I hope you like it!
