Freedom and change happen when we let go of the old and start building the new. Walk through that door, take the first step. Freedom is waiting for you,
My mentors in art have always said that you have to been willing to let go of the background to get to the masterpiece. It’s so true, while the background it vital to the whole and tells the story of the piece, we don’t stop creating when the background is complete, we keep working and changing elements. In the process, there is always an ugly phase of a painting and then it happens, everything comes together, the vision is there for where our creativeness will take us.
This also applies to life, we have to be willing to let go of the past, to build a better future. Change can feel scary and ugly, but if we keep working the path will become clear, it might take some time but it will happen. Our background is part of our story, it’s our history but it does not define our future. Be willing to let go.
