About Me

My photo

 
 
Oh give me just one day to free my mind,to create to listen, to walk, to quiet my soul,to cool down,to carry on~ My photographs and other artworks are inspired by the wonder, simplicity and quietude of every day life. In every photograph,sketch, painting or textile piece, I hope to capture the spirit, the mood, the song of my subjects. I was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. My creative spirit awakened when I moved to Northwest Montana where there was plenty of room to roam with my camera and places to be alone with nature and its inhabitants. All my photographs are professionally printed by acclaimed Bozeman, MT artist/ photographer Rob Outlaw on archival quality fine art paper. My frames are custom built by artist Richard Moore of Wind and Snow Art Gallery in Polson, MT.

Fruits of the Spirit - Self Control


Today my mini goal was to create something new that represented Self Control.
Self control is defined as the ability to manage your actions, feelings and emotions.
Harder said then done at times.
Flip side of Self Control? 
defiant
disorderly
headstrong
ungoverened
unruly 
wayward
LOVE this statement by Zero Dean on Self-Discipline.
Like a muscle, the more you exercise self-control on a consistent basis, the stronger you get.
As your self-control increases, the more you gain the ability to direct your life in a manner that is congruent with the true you.
The more congruent your actions are with your thoughts and feelings, the better you feel about yourself and the decisions you make.
Every time you feel good about a decision you make, it raises your self-esteem and your self-confidence. You also reinforce in your mind what you are capable of and it makes it less difficult to make similar decisions in life.

Heading out to exercise my self-control muscle.
How about you?
