Artist: Mark Rothko

Where do you draw on your strength from? What replenishes your soul? The fact of the matter is that we cannot always turn to those in our lives and sometimes their support is not sufficient nor is it necessary. We also need to be able to draw on our own strengths and fortitude.

Often times I think what makes me resilient is the beauty that surrounds me. Creativity and imagination are intrinsically born on its wings.  Simply put, it is what I choose to seek and fully engage my senses in. It breathes new life into me on a daily basis. It sustains my soul and grants me the endurance to move through life.

As much as the world is too much with me at times, its beauty can also be my salvation.
