Success & Health - Shirley's 314th Friendly Greeting, August 14, 2011

How are you?

This week, the biggest thing in my city is that the 26th Summer Universiade has opened in my city -- Shenzhen.

After watching the opening ceremony Friday night and saw many beautiful activities of the young athletes, I did feel that Any Success Needs the Support of a Healthy Life. :-)

This is a normal truth, but, in the so many years, the education I have gotten was how to work hard, then to make success. Until last year, when I heard that a long life is one of the most important elements to make a success in my first lesson in China Central Academy of Fine Arts, I was touched so much.

To be honest, if it was before 2009, I did not believe it at all. But now, I believe it indeed. Because, it is difficult to imagine how my health has dropped down the so bad level from the so healthy style -- from a long distance runner and a manager who often worked for 15 houses each day for many years, has changed to be a patient who needs to go to hospital often.

So, now, when I look at how those young athletes worked with so beautiful styles and features, I do have some new and special feelings about health and life. I could not help smiling about myself.

It is really the time to summarize my lessons and change my life style.

So, this week, during I watched the 26th Summer Universiade, I have recovered my daily exercise that has been stopped for about 3 years.

I believe that life bases on the sport. So, since I would like to work on my combined art dream with whole of my rest life, the first thing is that I must keep in the good health, and then I can make my dream to be true. After all, health is the support of any success.

With this idea, I have created my weekly new paintings and new music, but, I did not work until 1:00 a.m. or 2:00a.m. as I often did again. :- )

I would like to remember my lessons, change myself, fight and try to overcome the sickness while become a true artist who has a good health support, to help the world and more people with some more healthy and more beautiful creations.

How do you think of my ideas and new work style? Do you enjoy my new paintings and new music works?

Do you have anything special to share?
I am just a student on Art of Painting, Music, English and Management, to work on the web site in my free time. I would really like to do a few things with what I have learned to make this little web site to be an Electronic Bridge of Inter-Art & Cross - Culture Exchange, Chinese Language Learning & Friendship Making. To help the others while to improve myself.

I would like to appreciate you for your understanding, directions, supports and help.
