My outlook on life is a simple one: I LOVE IT!
I am not Mother T, or a perfect person by any means. I am just a regular person trying to make a difference. I am a mother, wife, artist, chef, writer, and now a self-proclaimed spreader-of-gratitude. Life has been a great teacher, and this student is eager to learn its many lessons. It is has been said that, Ã¢â‚¬Å“Wisdom, is knowing the right path to take, and Integrity, is taking itÃ¢â‚¬Â. If you explored my journey in this life, it would be riddled with abrupt high and lows, and many bends and forks in the road. I embrace my struggles and triumphs with gratitude, for a plant grows deep roots when it has to search for water. I often remind myself of one of lifeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s simple rulesÃ¢â‚¬Â¦.the golden one. Every being has great value, no matter their station in life. Everyone has a story to tell. My artwork tells mine
I am a social creature, born with an innate fascination as to how and why people do the things we do. Meditative and contemplative, I am often awestruck by the beauty and power of Mother-Nature. I am on an exploration of the things in life that move me, and those that simply make me smile, or curious. My experiences have helped shape who I am as an artist and a person, but they alone do not define me. My art is in a constant state of evolution, as am I.
I have had the good fortune to travel to many places around the globe, and hope to continue to see more of this wondrous world. Scotland, the birthplace of golf, is my second home.
I am truly grateful for the many gifts I have been given. I find myself in daily pursuit of the answers to these questions: How can I become my best me, and what can I do to help my fellow man? I recently helped to launch a not-for-profit & website www.SpreadingGratitudeRocks.com Our "soul" mission is to spread global gratitude. Living life through the lens of a grateful heart can transform the world.
Like the melody and words of a love songÃ¢â‚¬Â¦.the colors and images in art are meant to touch you in a way that a physical hand cannot. Falling in love is something you feel, but often you do not know why. Similarly, when we fall in love with a painting it is often simply just Ã¢â‚¬Å“becauseÃ¢â‚¬Â. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s color and mood may awaken or inspire something intangible within us.
I think we are meant to surround ourselves with the things we love. This includes not only people but our environment. It is for this reason that I often paint in a vibrant color palletÃ¢â‚¬Â¦.it feels goodÃ¢â‚¬Â¦Ã¢â‚¬Â¦it feels Ã¢â‚¬Å“aliveÃ¢â‚¬Â. Life is meant to be lived, and I intend to live mine. With child-like eagerness, I embrace that mantra. Buckle-up, dream bigÃ¢â‚¬Â¦..and enjoy the ride.
With Gratitude, Julia Rose

My TED story
Please visit our site, & consider taking the challenge. There truly is no downside. I suggest downloading our free bedside journal & maybe printing some tokens-of-gratitude to pass out during your journey. You will not only help us accomplish our goal of spreading global gratitude, but it will enhance you own journey. Another wonderful tool is using a coin or gratitude rock that you find in your garden as a physical object to help you focus on daily gratitude.Watch the short for our upcoming educational documentary "Making Man…Kind" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wsOHF8BhqgU
