Each Day- Karen Taylor

Good morning everyone. Karen Taylor here today for Donna Salazar’s Designs. Today I am celebrating me…AND YOU and out uniqueness.
Everyday I try to be the best me I can be. It is not a easy as you would think it would be and I am always challenged. I guess if it was easy we would all be perfect.
I selected  this photo because at the end of each day as the sun goes down and I lay myself to sleep I think of the blunders and successes of the day and HOPE  that in this day there are more times I did well than not and for even more successes tomorrow.

I choose for my layout to use one of Donna Salazar’s wonderful Crafty Chronicle’s by GCD Studios Quotes. (by now you know I LOVE QUOTES) For my layout  I used: “Be who you are and say what you feel. Because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.”  Dr Seuss

“Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of somebody else.”

“You were born an original. Don’t become a copy.”
The things I have discovered about being “yourself” is you may be like the person next to you….you may have similar likes and dislikes…but our differences and uniqueness is what makes the world a wonderful place.
When I am driving and see beautiful houses painted wonderful colors I am thankful they are not all white…with picket fences.
Or walking at our local art walk and seeing the different art styles and mediums I am thankful that not everyone does one kind of art……and\ I think we need to celebrate what makes us the wonderful individual's that we are…….
“Let the world know you as you are, not as you think you should be, because sooner or later, if you are posing, you will forget the pose, and then where are you?”

At the end of each day……I will continue to be me….improving on my imperfections and if I can’t learn to overcome my imperfections , I hope I learn that they are just part of what make me. Good and bad, unique and different….. just like you……so go on enjoy who you are. No one is perfect. I KNOW because I am not.
“Be who you want to be…not what other people want to see.”

My gosh, this is absolutely stunning, Karen! I love that quote you chose, and love the whole theme of your page. This is such a great philosophy to carry through life. And what a gorgeous design! I love all the texture from the ruffled trim and the doilies. Awesome title work, too.
