I painted this canvass while in the depths of despair. I realize how super dramatic that sounds, but it’s true.
I had reached a point where I had enough of myself and was ready to change the one thing I had control over: Meeeeeeeeeeee!
I kissed misery goodbye by first turning off my television. Then I started painting.
This was difficult work, but I lived to tell about it.
I’d recommend finding a way to connect with yourself if you have not yet taken a self exploration journey.
Before we can fix our messy parts, we have to first acknowledge them.
I remember looking in the mirror and saying to myself,
It’s easy to believe whatever story you’ve been telling yourself .
I did not want to spend a lifetime in misery, so I stopped playing games with my life and I did my work; I painted. It helped. I’m healing.
If you’re in need of some self-reflection, find a way to connect with yourself.
You may not know exactly what you want in life, and that’s ok.
But part of getting what you want requires humility.
And humility requires honest introspection.
And honest introspection requires time and effort.
Enjoy the journey to the inside.
