The artist, Thomas Kinkaid, known as the painter of light, is also known for his uplifting thoughts of which I share a few here:
Life offers second chances.
You’ll never know if life can be trusted until you take the risk of really living.
Approach every day of your life with dedication.
To gain a fresh perspective on your world, try looking at life through the eyes of a child.
Life, even a balanced, harmonious life, was never meant to be static and unchanging.
Life offers courage and strength and humor to cope with the inevitable negatives.
If you want little gifts of joy in your life…you may actually have to train yourself to notice them.
Life, if you have eyes to see the whole picture, brims with meaning, with purpose.
I’ll have more Kinkaid quotes in a few days.
It is a good thing to “live in the light”.
Schedules and routines were made to serve us, not to rule us.
Even if events don’t turn out the way we want, we still have options and new possibilities.
Pay attention to your passions, your purposes, and your pursuits.
Small gestures, small events, small experiences often mean the most.
With every creative act, you light a fresh candle for a darkened world.
You can choose to trust in the richness and beauty of life.
The hard work of creativity includes the work of getting good enough to do what you really want to do.
It takes courage to push ourselves off center, to think in nonstandard ways.
If you want beauty in your life, you simply have to go outdoors from time to time.
Thomas Kinkade was known as the Painter of Light because of the beautiful hints of light in all of his paintings. Here are a few more of his quotes.
Feed your heart with beauty.
Somewhere out there is a unique place for you to serve, a unique life role for you to fill.
Condition yourself for joy by doing little things you love on a regular basis.
Even the most mundane tasks can be transformed into inspiring sources of joy.
Opening our eyes to beauty really means opening our hearts and imaginations.
Beauty enters your heart to all the senses.
Keep your eyes open for the signs of spiritual reality hiding behind a familiar disguise.
Only you can make your particular contribution to humankind.
We live far more joyfully when we allow ourselves a playful spirit.
Don’t be afraid to go deep, to dig out a spiritual reality that might not be readily discernible at first glance.
More to come.
