"A painting is a record of the extremely intensified moments of life – where more than one space, two senses of time, more than the law even seems at work, where the emotional forces seem to be propelling one to a dangerous limit, where reason and explanations become too enfeebled or too speeded-up to matter."

My first podcast starts tomorrow so stay tuned 🔊for more details how to download and listen to it. Episode 1 for Season 1 is called ‘Why so serious’ - any guess what I will talk about? 😉
Are you proud of how you spend your time?
Comparing yourself to other people can make you doubt yourself, that you are not enough and that you don’t do enough. I can totally relate to that, but we need to take responsibility for the choices we make in our lives. We need to own our focus so that we are doing things that matters to us. The only person we should compare ourselves to is yesterday’s version of ourselves 🧠🙏🏼❤️
I've come to realize that we can only be responsible for ourselves as adults. That all comes with maturity and hopefully the wisdom that comes with that.
I was chatting with a lady yesterday in the gym (Elaine if you're reading this 😊) and she commented that she felt it a shame that we have to grow old before we come to the realization that it doesn't matter what other people think of us or that they don't understand what we're doing with our lives. I completely agree.
Once we realize that we are not responsible for other people's thoughts and feelings we can then focus on our responses to events. That's really the only control we have.
At one time I saw a therapist to talk through some issues with other people that really weighed heavily upon my shoulders. She kept saying to me "But Alana that's not your stuff" It was a relief to me to learn that I was not the all powerful being who could be responsible for the self-perceived failings of others. 🤔
And so, as you go through your day take note of those things that happen that make you feel bad about yourself. Is that YOUR stuff? Or is it the stuff of others that you are taking as your own.
That said, it's important to be responsible for ourselves. It's important to not blame others for the place we're at in our lives. It's a tricky balance that comes with maturity which doesn't always correlate with age (I know some wonderful old-soul wise millenials). Taking responsibility for ourselves (not blaming others) and not taking on others people's personal issues is one of the most crucial and tough lessons to learn before we can truly feel gratitude and contentment. But this is the most liberating place to be because your happiness is not dependent upon anyone else but ourselves IMHO💖

Leave a 💛 if you feel may be this is true after reading this👇 I am not saying that you mustn’t focus on your outside. I am saying you need to focus on your outside as well as your inside. Because your outside beauty will stay in you only for few years. But if you are beautiful inside. It stays with you always!! And people will remember you!! If you don’t believe me, ask yourself, this question? Do you remember Mother Teresa or the name of the cutest person in your college or school?
