This watercolour painting is a part of the series on my 'Core Values'. In life, things happen to the best of us over which we have no control. But we do have control on how we react to the situation. Changing our perspective and being optimistic is in our hands even though we cannot change the events or the people. When we change the perspective, we see things in a totally different light.
"Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence." - Helen Keller
Optimism is one of my core values. No one's life is without problems and difficult times. There are happy times and troubled times in everyone's life because that is how life unfolds for everyone. I feel that if one has an optimistic outlook in life one can handle the difficulties and dark moments a lot better. As Helen Keller says, if you keep your face to the sunshine, you will never see the shadow. Hence, It is important to have hope, confidence and faith if we wish to achieve success.

This black and white print is a part of the series, "Lessons Learned from Six-year Olds". Each piece is hand-printed by the artist. A portion of the money from the sale of this print is donated to mental health.
Knowing where one wants to go, setting the goal and focusing on it are important in order to succeed. If one can eliminate distractions and stay focused on a single goal, success is not hard to attain. Sometimes it takes a young six-year old to remind us of this. It is based on a true story.
The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
