Art in a bottle by Paul Carter

The positive messages in a bottle

As I write the above words I flash through childhood memories and emotions of different parts of my journey.
I believe and feel my mother planted the first positive seeds that have grown into strong roots. 
Being the youngest of 9 siblings there are 7 boys 
 and 2 girls. 
 I learned so much from each and everyone of them and the variety of people in the neighborhood’s.
I learned a lot in grade school which was awesome and grew up with most of the people from kindergarten to eighth grade with only a few new kids every other year or so.
I remember on either my 18th or 19th birthday a group of friends gave me a 2 inch book of positive quotes from all types of people.
Yes I read through that book periodically for many years and eventually was stored in one of the many boxes of stuff.
Yes there are many points to why I share these thoughts that come up, and the boxes of stuff is both mental and physical.

There is not one point or tip or hack or quick fix, it’s a seasonal journey of waves of change.
As I learned both personal and business I began to realize they both are connected and take time and energy.
So began cleaning house mentally and physically and going through many, many boxes. It took and takes lot of time and energy and emotions to go through those mental and physical boxes and decide what to let go of and what to keep, give, sell or donate.

The art that I began with was tropical dreams murals and evolved into more abstract into the positive reminders for daily life.
So the bottle is a inspiration from childhood through to the present from movies from friends and family, to the importance of the mind and the positive self talk and the Conversations.
Choosing the thoughts and words is a training and it’s a daily hourly training in between life‘s responsibilities.

I would paint my personal surfboards and add positive reminders to look at in between waiting for waves. 

That evolved through friends boards into many customers and into painting amd drawings into A first and second edition coloring book for all ages called waves of change.
The first edition laid the foundation and truly helped me to stay present and focused on the good on the positive thoughts the positive words the positive people in my life and learning by doing mentally, spiritually, and  physically daily.
The second edition is a journal journey of art learning and the mental and physical training of inspired creativity.
