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 4/27/2016:
I don’t know about you, but every year when May rolls around, the same feeling hits me. The energy and wide open possibility that the turn of the New Year brings has fully worn off, and now I’m fully in the trenches with whatever goals I’ve made for myself at the start of the year. I start eyeing up December, stacking my progress against my original intentions and wondering if I’m on track to hit whatever milestones I set. This inevitably causes me a good bit of angst. (Am I alone here?) I can feel myself fall into familiar traps of comparison and scarcity — looking at those around me and wishing I could do more, earn more, get SOMEWHERE faster.
Then, just when I can feel all that pressure mounting, I remind myself to look at the big picture. I take a step back and remember this stress is manufactured BY ME and I can choose to make it disappear with a pretty simple tool: gratitude. I look at the grand scheme of how far I’ve come, what I’ve accomplished, all the love and health and ease and joy I have in my life, and the stupid middle-of-the-year crunch seems so pointless.
You might not feel the same way about this time of year but I’m sure you can relate to that feeling of pressure. Next time that happens, remember the big picture. Remember where you are in the grand scheme of life and all you have to be thankful for. Sometimes the change in perspective is just what you need to approach your life and work with fresh eyes.
