Pick up the brushes and paint your life. Add as many colours to enhance every facet of your being.
We can choose to live the mundane, routine, and expected life or experience the reality of our dreams, uncovering much about ourselves and our place in the world. May we never stop dreaming.
I cannot succumb to a stereotype or an expectation that someone else has of me.
My freedom to think, to be, to experience life through me has to be a valid need.
I cannot feel trapped, thinking my fate lies in someone else’s hands.
Because it doesn’t. My fate lies in my hands.
So I will live out my life, determined to keep my soul satisfied; by learning, jumping, leaping into an unknown world of wonderment, surprises and endless opportunities.
I will think the unimaginable, dream the impossible and be an authentic component to the world.
Recognising the many roles and responsibilities we have as mother/father, sister/brother, teacher/student, daughter/son etc, we begin to accept that through partnerships we learn more about who we are and what we want from life.
If you’ve ever felt stifled, unsure or chlausstrephobic in any relationship or career, know that this is YOU saying “I’m not okay with my present state of being.”
Ask yourself why. Dig deep to find out what it is that makes YOU feel whole. The answers will lead you to your true calling about who you are and what makes you, YOU.
If you want to identify me, ask me not where I live, or what I like to eat, or how I comb my hair, but ask me what I am living for, in detail, ask me what I think is keeping me from living fully for the thing I want to live for. Thomas Merton
I’ve had people mock my opinions, gloat at my mistakes, disregard my presence and even undermine my abilities. It may have bruised me for that moment, but it did not stop me from moving forward in pursuit of achieving a better and more fulfilled life.
Ralph Waldo Emerson said: The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.
Explore your possibilities. Express your freedom to be. Learn from every position you find yourself in. The world is in sync with everyone and each place it takes you or you choose to go is never by mistake. You can either grow or stop growing.
I love working with and supporting local artists, designers, creatives….. The above images were brought to life by my amazing team for my PAINT YOUR LIFE – NEVER STOP DREAMING post. Thank You!
