New Mind Set

Saturday, January 16, 2021

Everything is at an all time high right now. Nerves, tempers, anxiety. name it and it's running high. With the stress of what tomorrow might bring I can only pray that it will get better. However I do have my doubts. I work a lot in the overseas market field. Most of my clients are watching the US with anticipation of a huge down fall. I do not like to get into conversations with them for I am in no place to speculate what tomorrow will be. I do know that no country has ever become a socialist country and prospered. It has always been a downfall. Without capitalism we will not be the reigning country any longer. We will not be world traders, our economy is about to drop and leave us in the dirt. Without the American dollar we will have no power and what does that do but leave us at the mercy of who know what.

As they take away the cash flow, and change money to digital funds, how will that effect us?
Will our net worth be less as the value the dollar holds now. I think so but then again it's really a question of wait and see. I am worried about Social Security and all the benefits that is suppose to belong to our age group. Unfortunately I think that might be on the chopping block also. For anyone my age that does not have a steady income or a huge amount securely stashed away I think will be hit the hardest. And even if we have stashed it away in markets, banks, or under our pillows. What good will it do if the dollar hits an all time low as we transition into digital funds. If we are allowed to carry our value is one thing but to take 10 cents on the dollar is quite another. I am not alone in thinking of these things. As I said I have friends begging me to leave the US and come to them to live and put my savings in other countries before I lose it all. So stress is in the air. With that said how do I fight stress?

I keep my free time busy with my hands. I paint and create what I like to feel I can leave behind me and it will still be recognized and loved. I don't put a dollar figure on it only love.
I paint what I love. I am not a commissioned artist. I am not a working artist. I am not a starving artist, but I am an artist that puts to canvas what I feel is important to me. As before I will share with you some of my art.

Here is the image that gave me motivation and inspiration - a photo of my Stallion Mon Sufi long gone but not forgotten. The chestnut Stallion is Alexandra's Destiny another memory that I treasure.











Here is the image that gave me motivation and inspiration - a photo that I saw impressed me enough to recreate it.

    I hear ya. Not everyone has looked at the whole picture. Love your paintings. I wish I could paint. I guess my talents are elsewhere. Hope the weather isn't too bad where you live. We might get some rain. Fingers crossed, as we sure need it. Have a good week-end! emoticon

    Did you paint these? they are stunning pictures..

    Our world has been in a turmoil.. at first it consumed me/ stressed me out

    Then I had to keep reminding myself, all that is happening isn't really new, it is now in the LIGHT where it can be healed.

    May your fears find peace,
