    You should make this a book! I LOVE it! And I LOVE you!!

  2. ksbeth says:

    beautiful and i agree with tara, this is a book )

  3. This is absolutely wonderful Colleen! I agree — it should be a book!

  4. Kathy says:

    Really enjoyed your words and pictures.

  5. mewhoami says:

    This is fantastic!

  6. It is a book! And timely too! Thank you!

  7. The “Run wild” drawing is my favorite! It brightened my whole body.

  8. I read it twice. So sweet. Xx

  9. tric says:

    I think we should skip the commandments as we know them and adopt these. The irish tourist board would be delighted if we did!
    Definitely how to live life happily.

    • The Irish Tourist board is welcome to be delighted. πŸ˜‰ I have oft said (likely and literally hundreds of times) that if you go to Ireland and don’t have a good time, it’s your own fault.

      Thank you Tric.

  10. VERY inspiring, Chatter Master! Your drawings are the perfect complement to these ideas!

  11. Debra says:

    Oh Colleen! You always do something special but this one is a new high! I absolutely delighted in your drawings. Each one rings as true, but in particular, I loved Be happy in a crowd. You captured that so perfectly with the addition of color. I could go on and on! LOL!

  12. reocochran says:

    The illustrations were so uniquely statements that you almost could eliminate words and call it the, “Tell Me How you Feel” Book or “What does this say to you?” Book.

  13. All of the above, and more. “Hold hands when you walk with your love” tops it for me, and “Sit. With silence.” has always been a favourite of mine.

  14. Heartafire says:


  15. So many fun things to comment on here, but the hipster with the hat was my favorite. πŸ™‚ Great stuff!

    • πŸ˜‰ I really get a kick out of that one PIF. And the running one. And the scooter one. And there are quite a few I didn’t put in. Thank you!

      • I tried to keep track of all my comments for so many of them. Then it got to be too much for my brain, so I just stuck with the one I could still remember! πŸ™‚

        • That is a good plan to go by. By the way…how are you feeling?

          • In general, fine. The closer it gets the more nervous I get. Soon it will only be three more months instead of four. Part of me is like, just get it over with! Part says what all can we get done as a family now that we won’t be able to do with a baby? Let’s quickly do that!

            • I’m glad you’re feeling fine. And I hope you and the family get all of those non-baby activities in. I have a feeling when wee little one arrives everyone will be happy doing the baby friendly activities. πŸ™‚ Baby’s transform us ….. I think they have magical powers. πŸ™‚

  16. Beautiful, righteous, true! Thanks for this.

  56. It was awesome … People remember pictures or videos more than words…This post is a perfect combination and motivation

  57. All good advice to take to heart.
    Really like the “Be intrigued” part as it speaks to how we should always remain curious, something that is hard to do in a world where we are constantly bombarded with information and its biases.

    • This is a great point LongEyeSamurai. I find myself looking less for information and more for interaction with the world, I think that helps find the intriguing things that matter. Thank you. πŸ™‚

  95. roberta m says:

    Great post. Love the one about saying something nice about someone you don’t care for–the image and text are perfect. Made me laugh and gave me the ideal image to remember when I find myself in this situation—which I do; too often! Thanks for posting!

    • My friend asked me if I really thought the devil could ‘inspire’ me. I told her yes, because I don’t want to be like ‘him’. πŸ™‚ She had a lightbulb moment. πŸ™‚

    What a GREAT piece! Love it! Thanks for sharing!

  111. “Be a hipster for a day” But what if i’m a hipster all-day, every-day?

    • Hhhhmmmmmm, well, first, yay you πŸ™‚ I’m a little jealous. Second, well, I can’t think of anything that makes me happier than playing hipster for a day (I mean, I can’t really pull it off no matter how hard I try). What would you like to be for a day?

      • It’s easy! As long as you keep on trying and trying…pretty soon you’ll be on your way! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ I’d like to be a mermaid, or some fairy tale creature for a day. But since that seems a little impossible, I’d just try to try to play a care-free type of person for a day.

        • Care free type of person for a day. Sounds like a lofty goal. To refill the energy reserves. I think you should try it. Maybe for an hour or so to start. πŸ˜‰ But I have to say, I’d like to hear about a mermaid or fairy tale creature attempt!!!
