Color your canvas with purple stars,
color the sunrise with bright orange.
Make your life count every day,
live with intention, live with purpose.
Speak your mind, without seeking approval.
Lend your voice, lend your heart.
If the question is how to ?
I would think and then say,
Open your branches and embrace everything.
Join us at Melissa's Six Word Fridays, the challenge today is " How To "
i think you have the recipe...smiles...making life count takes much intentionality...ReplyDelete
Love this, Ayala. I need to print it out and tape it up to see every day.ReplyDelete
I'm with Kelly! Printing, cutting and taping! Will probably also use it in a scrapbook at some point...promise I'll share if I do!ReplyDelete
That sure is the amount, to make it count.ReplyDelete
Excellent advice for all of us. Still working on some of this, so thanks for the reminders :)ReplyDelete
Love this.. so timely to read today.ReplyDelete
Thanks for the reminder ~
Beautifully done...This is a stunning piece of poetry! Love it :)ReplyDelete
Open your branches and embrace everything...this is just such a beautiful image of saying yes to life..ReplyDelete
Live with intention, yes. I try but sometimes the drudgery of every day gets the better of me.ReplyDelete

LOVE that last line! :)ReplyDelete
Oh, I love the image of purple stars and a bright orange sunset! Good one, Ayala!!ReplyDelete
your canvas sounds lovely :)ReplyDelete
i like that you used open your branches and not spread. open is a more effective verb with branches. i see that now so clearly becuz you have written it so beautifully.ReplyDelete
I too was taken with "open your branches and embrace everything"ReplyDelete
I love the third line, 'make your life count every day'. When we're busy and distracted that's the hardest thing to do.ReplyDelete
Thank you, Brian...I hope so ;)ReplyDelete

Sara, so true that when we are caught up with our daily life...it's hard to remember...that's why it's good to remind ourselves that we need to make it count :)ReplyDelete
"Without seeking approval" - those words are very important to remember. I think sometimes we base our actions on our perceptions of what people expect us to be.ReplyDelete
Very inspiring Ayala, and beautifully written.ReplyDelete
such encouragement in a beautifully written piece.ReplyDelete
thank you for being my inspiration today.
Thank you, PostMan. Happy I could bring you some inspiration :)ReplyDelete
WOW! Such a beautiful and inspiring words. I think you should write a book your words are soulful and touching. ^_^ReplyDelete
PS: Thank you Ayala so much for stopping by and ask about me. I truly appreciate your kindness. I was very sick for while with flu, I'm still recovering slowly - also there is too many things going on at the same. And now working hard to updating my website with new collections, on time for the holiday season.
I hope all is well with you too and your family!
Sunshine & smiles to you always.
