The Rules for being Amazing

Risk more than is required
Learn more than is normal
Be Strong
Show Courage
Speak your truth
Live your values
Adore Yourself
Release Mediocrity
Aim for genius
Stay humble
Be kinder than expected
Deliver more then is needed
Exude Passion
Shelter your limits
Transcend you fears
Dream but start small
Inspire others by your bigness
Act now
Don’t stop
Change the world

~~~ Robin Sharma ~~~

******* Portrait – ‘A Red-Header Day’ is a lithography, created as a surprise gift for me, by

Award Winning Artist Linda Molto.

There are only 32 of them of which the artist has #1 and I #2.

As of our last conversation, 25 had been sold.

For me, it was an honor to have been selected to be one of her subject matters.

The title refers to the bright orange-red hair I wore when I started exhibiting at art shows.

It was my branding for my dedicated customers to find me among the many artists exhibiting.

I hope the people who have purchased them are enjoying my image on their walls.

Intriguing, sensitive, mysterious, loving, artistic and crackling with excitement for life is a pretty good description of who I am. I just retired from the world of art where I sold my Artfully Designed Handmade Jewelry for 28 years; although, art will always be a part of who I am no matter what venue I choose to express it in.

  4. What a fabulous surprise gift for you Izzy, you are so worth it!


  5. A vibrant and gorgeous portrait, Issy. What a fantastic talent Linda Molto is! The rules for being amazing are very simple to follow, but I’m not sure about the putting it all into practice. I’ll try my best, as there are certain aspects of the world that definitely need to be changed. 🙂

  6. Wow, I love the portrait, it’s so alive and happy, it’s really a lovely gift. In relation to the rules to be amazing, I’m afraid, I don’t follow many of them, I need to fix it. Have a great night!

    • It was a gesture straight from the heart and one I treasure. I received this gift in 2001. I never tire of viewing it. 😊
      I think we all fall short of what we need to do for ourselves and feel for ourselves but if we continue to strive we can eventually arrive to that place. 🙏

  11. Perfect timing, Izzy. I needed a little ‘inspirational boost’ and you’ve done a fine job in helping me ‘re-focus’ my efforts. 😉 Thank you for your ‘telepathic’ insight and encouragement. 😉


  12. The poem makes “being amazing” sound so simple. 😉 … Love the lithography … and cheers to the artist who selected the subject! Congrats!!!!


    • I’ve noticed there are many books being written on ‘How to live simply’. Our wants are over-shadowing our needs which creates complications. Somehow, we took the idea of having a – better life than our parents – to heights that cause super anxiety and stress. How do we go back? I suppose that’s why there are so many self-help books. 😊 🙏
      The artist is a good friend who captured me without a sitting. I was extremely impressed and complimented. Thanks for the visit, comment and congrats, eFrank … !!!! 😊

    • You do have an eye for the arts, Becca. I was extremely complimented by the artist capturing me without a sitting.
      She is an excellent artist. Her subjects are all nautical. I was the first portrait she had decided to do. 😊
      Thank you for hosting Nurturing Thursday so I can do A-MAZING things … !!! 🙏

  14. I have red header days every day! Naturally, lol. Now I just need to work on some of those listed qualities.


    • Your red hair is the best because it isn’t out of the bottle which requires a great deal of work. 😄
      I’m sure wome of those things listed have been accomplished by you. Mayebe, 2015 will be your banner year. 😍
      Thank you for visiting and leaving your great comment. 🙏
