The Sculptor - Rzezbiarz

I came across this very wise and uplifting poem which can shift anyone's perception - it does it with mine, so I thought I share it with you all. Enjoy all Sculptors!

"The Sculptor"
I woke up early today, excited over all I get to do before the clock strikes midnight.
I have responsibilities to fulfill today.
I am important. My job is to choose what kind of day I am going to have.
Today I can complain because the weather is rainy or I can be thankful that the grass is getting watered for free.
Today I can feel sad that I don't have more money or I can be glad that my finances encourage me to plan my purchases wisely and guide me away from waste.
Today I can grumble about my health or I can rejoice that I am alive.
Today I can lament over all that my parents didn't give me when I was growing up or I can feel grateful that they allowed me to be born.
Today I can cry because roses have thorns or I can celebrate that thorns have roses.
Today I can mourn my lack of friends or I can excitedly embark upon a quest to discover new relationships.
Today I can whine because I have to go to work or I can shout for joy because I have a job to do.
Today I can complain because I have to go to school or eagerly open my mind and fill it with rich new tidbits of knowledge.
Today I can murmur dejectedly because I have to do housework or I can feel honored because the Lord has provided shelter for my mind, body and soul.
Today stretches ahead of me, waiting to be shaped. And here I am, the sculptor who gets to do the shaping.
What today will be like is up to me. I get to choose what kind of day I will have!

EDM#243 - "Draw a pillow"

Natknelam sie na ten bardzo madry i podnoszacy na duchu wiersz, ktory potrafi przemiescic punkt widzenia niemal kazdego - przemieszcza moj, wiec pomyslalam, ze podziele sie nim z wami wszystkimi. Na zdrowie Rzezbiarze.

"Rzezbiarz"
Obudzilam sie dzisiaj wczesnie, podekscytowana tym ile mam do zrobienia zanim wskazowki wskarza polnoc.
Mam obowiazki do spelnienie dzisiaj.
Jestem wazna. Moje zadanie polega na wyborze jaki rodzaj dnia bede miala.
Dzisiaj moge narzekac poniewaz jest deszczowa pogoda lub moge byc wdzieczna, ze trawa jest podlewana za darmo.
Dzisiaj moge byc smutna ze nie mam wiecej pieniedzy albo byc wdzieczna ze moje finanse zachecaja mnie do planowania zakopow rozsadnie i minimalizuja odpady i niepotrzebne marnotrastwo.
Dzisiaj mogę narzekać na moje zdrowie lub mogę sie cieszyć, że żyję.
Dzisiaj moge  lamentowac nad wszystkim czego moi rodzice mi nie zapewnili i dali gdy dorastalam albo moge byc wdzieczna ze pozwolili mi sie urodzic.
Dziś mogę płakać bo róże mają ciernie lub mogę świętować, że kolce mają róże.
Dziś mogę narzekać na brak przyjaciół lub mogę podejmować poszukiwania nowych zwiazkow.
Dziś mogę marudzic bo muszę iść do pracy, lub mogę krzyczec z radości, ponieważ mam pracę do wykonania.
Dziś mogę narzekac, bo muszę iść do szkoły, lub chętnie otworzyć swój umysł i napełnić je bogatymi nowymi smakołykami wiedzy.
Dziś mogę szemrac niezadowolona bo mam do wykonania prace domowe lub mogę czuć się zaszczycona, ponieważ Pan zapewnił schronienie dla mojego umysłu, ciała i duszy.
Dzien rozciąga się przede mną, czekając na kształt. I oto jestem ja, rzeźbiarz, który ma go uksztaltowac.
Jaki dzisiaj bedzie dzien, zalezy tylko ode mnie. Ja decyduje jaki dzien bede miala!

Thank you for passing on. It's good when we get to a place when we can decide for the most part to do as we please.

Anthony,
we are always at this point where we can decide. But of course you have to think about the outcome of your decisions and this is where to problem starts - to live with decisions and consequences:)

Alex,

I've not been by in a while and you've made some great posts! I love all the portraits--Morgan Freeman is instantly recognizable! The pillows are great and thank you so much for the poem. I'm about to print it out and hang it on my wall. I've been a bit too negative lately!

This poem is great - exactly the kind of thoughts I try to remember each day when I begin to grumble ^^!
Your pillow drawing is great - and so is your portrait of the old man below. Beautiful personality!
