Your Choices Will Change The World Art Journal Page
They called me their angel. It made me realize how such small actions can have such a large impact for people. I was on a plane from Ft. Worth to Denver last week and a couple came onto the plane. The woman sat next to me. The husband a few rows back. I noticed the woman struggling a bit with her seat belt, so I reached over to help. She thanked me and said that this was her first time to the United States. She was traveling with her husband from Pakistan and had been en route for over 20 hours. She slept a bit on the flight and when we landed I was about to walk by them in the terminal and I paused to tell them that I hope they had a wonderful trip visiting Denver and Chicago. They asked me where the baggage claim was and I said I would be more than happy to escort them there. We walked slowly - talking about their trip and their experiences so far. We stopped at a washroom before walking to the baggage claim area. I told them I would not leave them until we found their friend who was meeting them there. When we found their friend I wished them a beautiful trip and they told me I was their angel. They said that traveling to a new place can be confusing and stressful and that having me guide them was such a relief. Yes, your choices - even your choice to pause when you think you are in a rush - will change the world.
Today I am sharing an art journal page I created for Paper Crafter's Library. I had saved this tea bag a long time ago and now it found its perfect place :) I have a feeling this page may be taken out of my art journal and framed - it really speaks to me and I want to be reminded of this lesson always! For a full step-by-step video on how I created this page (and lots of other pages), head on over to Paper Crafter's Library by clicking the badge in the upper right-hand corner of my blog and consider becoming a member.
