Responsibility and power

My art fair booth

Art is seemingly creating something out of nothing.  Whether that means imposing order through design, or by expressing a thought, the artist’s skill is in the control of what will eventually become real.  But part of accepting control, is accepting responsibility.

There is power in accepting responsibility for what happens in your life. Accepting responsibility means accepting control. Accepting control means accepting one’s power. Accepting this power means we accept the ability to create not only our art, but our reality. 

And no, we don’t have control over many things that happen, but as they say, “life is 10% what happens to you, and 90% how you react to it.”  And that reaction is a choice we take responsibility for.  And that choice creates who we are, what energy we draw to ourselves, and the energy we emit.
