The Grass is never greener

Its one of those things we are all guilty of. If I only this or that. If you won the lottery your life would be full of new unforeseen consequences. 

In one respect we all do fantasize about what our lives could and would be like in different circumstances, what ever your cup of tea may be. Its really different for each one of us.

In another: what we dream in our minds about our circumstances in most cases, life would not be better. 

Now I am talking about the” only if I had a bigger car, boobs, so and so’s boyfriend girlfriend blah blah blah superficial nonsense . Not “if I only could eat three meals a day scenario”.

I feel like most of the grass is greener set are focusing on things that will not enhance or make their lives better. They just for some reason think more material things or relationships will make them happier and a better person.

When in reality hard work observation and due diligence are a few of the multitude of actions we can do in our daily lives to make our own grass the greenest grass of all.

Happy Monday everyone have a wonderful week.

Oh and here is one of my favorite artists since I was 13. Vali Meyers.

Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays which ever you prefer.

Jessica Louise Christmas 1977

Jessica Louise Christmas 1977

I remember Christmas time so fondly as a little girl, even though we did not have allot I feel like I was always pretty happy. Well looked after and loved.

Most of my early Christmases were spent at my beloved godparents house in the Santa Cruz mountains. A few others with family in New Jersey. 

The very best part to me was (besides getting new toys or clothing obviously) the decorations and general christmas spirit feeling.

Those many years in Santa Cruz sharing food and stories and life in general permeated through me.

Forever those days are in my mind.

My love of Christmas in the real solid life, love and sharing aspect will always be my understanding of this holiday.

The whole commercial aspect I never quite understood completely. I mean, I understand it after working retail and running my own retail based business for the great majority of my youth to mature adult life.

However the waiting hours in line the day of thanksgiving to buy less expensive objects instead of spending time enjoying a day off with friends, family, or even on your own baffles me.

I suppose I have lost so many people I have deep love for these past few years including my godfather, that the greatest gift of all to me personally is enjoying time with loved ones.

I will take a visit with an old friend over a gift anyday and twice on Sunday.

Anyhow I suppose the whole purpose of me writing this Is to express my appreciation for all I have and the people who sail in and out of my life, like so many ships on the seven seas. 

I have great friendships and extended family, family and a wonderful husband to share my life with and that is really all I need.

Have a very Merry Christmas everyone, I want to say thank you for following and supporting me as a designer and artist that is also Is such a great gift.

Also Happy Holidays,Prosperous and hopeful New Year, Bon Annee.

I hope you take some time to visit and love and be loved by the people who mean the most to you.
