The Painting: I began painting and the eyes of this wolf are thickly interesting. I was not sure if I like it but as a whole it is powerful with the thick pulls of buttery oils. Holbein Duo are the best for me.
The Thought: I was reading the send out from another columnist about the imperfections in each of us. If you are like me, some folks literally drive you up the way with either their words or actions. My first reaction is patience, but that does not always work. I do try to contain my frustration. Years of teaching has enabled me to rely on the Suppress Tool.
Lets turn it around. How do other perceive you? Are they holding their breath and counting to ten because of your actions or words? We often forget to look at ourselves. We all have bad days and good days. We have to accept there is no perfection in any of us here on earth. Instead of being frustrated and angry there is another way.
We must learn to accept the imperfect. We must be ready to accept the imperfect. When someone is rocketing off due to a bad day, take three minutes and try to understand their situation. When you stop and care and show that you really care to take a few minutes to ask what is wrong, you are able to diffuse much of their dysfunction.
Learn to love imperfection and give both yourself and others a break.
