Painting Title: AIGHT IMMA HEAD OUT🦠
About: Interpret as you will. 🌞💋🌞💋 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀🌞💋🌞💋 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Tbh I’ve actually enjoyed spending time with myself, family and friends. Focusing on different things than what I’m used to and reevaluating my priorities. It’s been nice. But I think we can all agree that lady Rona needs to wrap it up cause I do miss hanging out with my people.
Painting Title: STORM 🌞💋🌞💋 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🌞💋🌞💋 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Any idea how many thoughts go through our heads in a day? About 60,000 - 80,000 of them in a single DAY. 🌞💋🌞💋 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It probably comes as no surprise to anyone who knows me but I overthink EVERYTHING. Lol anything really. I’m aware there’s a very distinctive line between insightful introspection and just overthinking like heck. And if you’re in the same boat, you know the negative effects can spiral outta control affecting significant areas of your life. I know dwelling typically causes more harm than good but yet I can’t quite kick the habit of it. I read somewhere that your psychological response to an event is more important than what actually happened to you.
Cool noted, soooo what can be done? For one, Practicing mindfulness has helped me quite a bit. Acknowledge the thought, find it’s source. There’s a reason you feel the way you feel. Get perspective and problem solve. if you can change the situation, do that. If not, make your peace and let go. There’s nothing you can do about it. Appreciating the things that ARE good helps. Be active, channel your energy into something you love to do. Whether it’s, singing, working out, painting, whatever your thing is, do it. Don’t give your mind the luxury of chewing on something longer than it should. 🌞💋🌞💋 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Thoughts are the most powerful things we possess, because our thoughts become things. Once your can control and whether your STORM. Game Over. ⠀
Painting Title: NEVER ALONE 🌞💋🌞💋 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀🌞💋🌞💋 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “life happens for you not to you.” One of my favourite quotes and a lesson that took me a long time to grasp. Till this day, I sometimes have to actively remind myself of it. It’s easy to wallow in self pity and say no one knows what you’ve been/ going through, whilst that could be very true, it’s is also true that every hurdle, obstacle, and gutting moment has all brought you to where you are today, and thus will continue to shape who you become. 🌞💋🌞💋 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This piece is a subtle reminder for whoever is going through hell that 1. You are truly never alone (unless you choose to believe that) and 2. Take a moment to pause and understand that these painful moments are just shaping a better you. Realising you burn with the brightest flame can sometimes take a minute to come to, but once you learn to trust God (or whatever name you call your creator), you’ll start to appreciate all the moments (good/bad) leading up to your realisation. Your light is right there and has been alllll along. Just gotta realize it boo. In conclusion, there's a whole world ahead of you, don’t let setbacks distract you. Thanks for coming to my TED Talk. And YES she got stretch marks cause they beautiful💁🏾♀️🌞💋🌞💋
Painting Title: POWER OF PERSPECTIVE
✨Hola. It’s been a minute I know, I know. But I’ve been working on something exciting and I can’t wait to share with you today @ 3:30pm EST, so keep your eyes peeled for a ✨🚨BIG ANNOUNCEMENT 🚨✨. 🌞💋🌞💋 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Quietly frankly after my last post I was so emotionally drained, the last thing I wanted to do was paint. I needed to take a step back from social media in general. I know we can all agree that 2020 had been an interesting year. Everyday we are bombarded with bad news on our socials, it can get very exhausting. It’s easy to get in negative mindset about the world (the world within, as well as without). In the midst of all the chaos, the one thing that definitely helps is perspective. So many things we take for granted (Dark Marble), having a roof over our heads, food, money to pay our bills, relationships with people in our lives, even having a phone and wifi. We go through life not acknowledging the simple blessings God has given us, when I reality a larger population of the world can only dream of the life most of us currently live. 🌞💋🌞💋 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Now there’s definitely nothing wrong with wanting better for yourself if you don’t like the life situation you’re in. But please remember to show gratitude. P.s every time I make a post I am always addressing myself, as well as whoever is willing to listen. Let GRATITUDE be your fuel. There’s always a choice. You ARE in control. Remember that whatever life situation you are in right now will pass. NOTHING is permanent and situations change all the time (White Marble = Hope).
