The 12th thing I learned -- We are always changing

(I looked through my blog for
a sample of how I painted
when the blog began, and my
colours have changed quite 
a bit.  I still like bright 
colours, but don't use them
in the same way.)

What does that mean?  In one sense it means we have to
ask people how they're feeling, and what they enjoy doing,
and in another sense it means don't be afraid if you suddenly
see the world differently.  It just means that you've changed. 

When I was teaching Positive Psychology I discovered that
so many of our cells renew daily -- this means whether we 
want to our not -- we are changing.

Oddly enough people sometimes expect consistency in artists,
who are also supposed to be the most creative people in
the world. So let's be alive, thrive and enjoy each other's
new ideas and new work.

Have a loving your life day.
