Life has presented me roses and thorns. In return, I’ve opened up and closed up, been outspoken, subdued. Petty, professional, changing and adapting to emotions on cue. It’s been a safe space and comfort zone.
But the becoming of me means I’m now morphing into a woman who is slowly coming into her own. Alive, aware, as if I walked into a room of crayons and sampled every colour in the box, eager to see what shade would stick.
Colors, like features, follow the changes of the emotions. Pablo Picasso
Bold is sometimes necessary. Bold moves in bold steps, scary as it may be to the relatively conservative soul. But adding that pop of colour on your otherwise drab canvas can make all the difference regarding where your life leads you. Take your paint brush, start working the strokes organically and begin painting a picture of who you want to be. Own your painting with pride. Unapologetically.
