“Split” inkling sketch by Jason J Nicholas

Today’s inkling sketch is a reminder….that sometimes we are so busy trying to make everybody in our lives happy, that we forget to make the most important person in our lives happy…OURSELVES. Take a moment each day to do something that makes you happy.

Once you have replenished the happiness cup in your soul, then you can continue pouring for others.

Live Creatively!

This inkling is dedicated to my friend Shannon’s son, Cody, whose persistence of strength and determination during his recovery is truly inspiring!
No matter how dark the clouds may be, the sun persistently rises and ultimately shines!
