This piece was created as a part of my 2016 project #AbstractAffirmationsDaily where I share an abstract piece of art with a positive message every day. Here's the story that accompanies this piece, posted on 9/15/2016:
When you look around, it's easy to see the rules that everyone is playing by and get swept up by it all.
Build your career THIS way. Raise your kids THAT way. Money = success. Don't cause a ruckus, don't be too honest, and definitely don't say anything that might make other people feel uncomfortable.
The rules are everywhere. But you know what? You can opt out.

This is what I say to myself when I can feel that I'm being pulled away from my core values in an effort to fit the mold I see forming around me. When I feel myself wanting to pick up my pace even though I'm enjoying slowness and rest; when I feel myself wanting to make more money when I have a comfortable lifestyle; when I feel myself wanting to buy more things despite owning what I need; when I feel myself wanting to BE more whatever even though I know I'm enough just the way I am.
But, all it takes is a little intention and just like that, I opt out. I opt out of feeling lacking, I opt out of unconscious consumption, I opt out of intolerance, and I opt out of UGG boots.
Your life, your choices. You make your own rules!
