remember who you wanted to be…love this.

Sep 17, 2012 | My Creative Practice

I recently shared a photo of a bumber sticker that read, “Remember Who You Wanted To Be.” I’ve been thinking of it ever since and I had to, HAD to include these words in a new collage painting.  I love the simple reminder. It feels so relevant to me with having a growing human being toddler boy in my life. So many dreams, so much joy, so much possibility held in our youth. I want to remember and keep moving forward in the direction of who I wanted to be, who I am, and who I’m becoming with each breath. 
If you’d like the simple reminder as well, we’ve just put this new print in the shop 🙂

Sending much love,

    I remember you wanting to be a cheerleader when you were little…and look! You did it! You ARE a cheerleader. You are a cheerleader for humanity… For strength and kindness… You are a cheerleader on the sidelines for those who need that extra boost to follow their dreams…You are a most wonderful world wide cheerleader for the spirit in all of us.
    The world needs more cheerleaders like you, lovey.

    Any chance you will be combining this phrase with one of your lively ladies on a canvas/print? I've been contemplating just this thing a lot lately.

    This reminds me of a hilarious bumper sticker I saw the other day: "I used to be cool." It was, of course, on a minivan. Ha! I know it isn't as sentimental as your thought, but I had to share!
