In this fast past world we live in it seems we are all looking for instant gratification in everything. It seems to be so difficult for us to be patient and work for an end goal. It reminds me of the saying I once heard: “Oh Lord, please give me patience… but hurry up.” This is funny, but sorry, it doesn’t really work like that! Sometime in order for us to move forward we need to change our thinking which will give us more motivation.
I have been working on my art pretty much my entire life. Probably about 90% of that time I have wanted to be at the end result. Then one day it surprised me how far I had come and the enormous inventory of artwork that I had produced. The education that I had obtained and all the many things that I had actually accomplished was astounding. I had spent so much time looking for the end that I wanted that I had missed all the little single accomplishments that I had achieved.
As I looked back over the years of looking for this instant gratification, I realized that I had not arrived where I was today through instant gratification or by some mythological genie in a lamp, but instead I had arrived at where I am today but by working day after day and each day moving just one step closer to my goal. Which is exactly the way I plan on continuing.
Create Your Own Positive Environment
For my Inspiration Station store I have created a number of products with this saying and artwork. These are some great products that can help you build your positive environment and serve as little reminders to stay positive.
All of these products include the “Delight” Doodle Flower over a mixed media background and accented by the motivational text, “One day One Step at a time.”
For those looking for a more simplistic, softer design, I have created products for my Debi Payne Designs store with the same “Delight” Doodle Flower. The flower is placed over a lovely multi-color watercolor wash background. All of these products can be personalized with your name or any text you wish.

I hope you will remember to take one step and one day at a time!
