Important Things #12 ~ Go to a Museum

Every time I go to a museum, I leave thinking, “I should do this more often!”

Museums & Galleries allow us to reach past ourselves, and experience parts of life through people who have gone on before us.  These are things that are left behind. It’s exciting to think that when you stand before a work of art, you see it exactly the way the artist did when they were creating it.

Money doesn’t have to be a factor.  Many museums have free days or at least discount days.  (And now with Groupons, you can go to them at 50-70% off anytime! lol)  There are SO may different types of museums!  Art Museums, Car Museums, Historical Landmarks, Art Galleries, etc.   The world is your playground… use it!!

QUESTIONS: Are you ever too old o learn?  Are you really too busy to take out one hour per month to visit a museum or gallery?  When you’re looking for a break from every day business or routine, why not go to a museum or gallery?

CHALLENGE: Go to a museum or gallery this month!  Report back to me & let me know which one you went to, how you enjoyed it, and what you got out of it.  Enjoy it!! 🙂

p.s. My next museum is the Lane Motor Museum here in Nashville, TN.  I am taking my children this weekend!

Until next time, I bid you adieu.

I am a very unique breed of person. If you ask my mother, she would say that I am a very old spirit who should have been born in the 40's or 50's. I love old womens' fashion...when women dressed like women! If you ask my daddy, he would say I am the biggest dressed up tom-boy he knows, who is way too into cars and climbing trees! I was a ballet dancer and choreography major in college until 20yrs old when I retired due to a neck injury. Besides still dancing through ballroom, latin & swing styles, my current passions are cars (seriously...I took 4 yrs of auto shop, and drool at the sound of a loud engine rumble!), fashion & interior design, and creating moments that last!

I love helping people find their strengths! Finding their happiness and their smile! (Everyone looks amazing when they smile!) I love showing people how to be genuinely happy by simply changing their mindsets and attitudes. I do these things in as many ways as I can, using many mediums. As well showing people how they too can do something they may not have thought they could. there's a will, there's a way!

I am a mother of two (2) amazing children, who make my life beyond blessed, and I always do my best for them. I love to spend as much time with them as I can and want them always to be learning... I am very proud of them! And, GOD comes first & foremost in my life!!!

I am...
