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 6/8/2016:
Pushing yourself to dream bigger, do better, and work harder can be a really good thing. But if it’s coming courtesy of a chip on your shoulder… well that’s a recipe for burnout if left unchecked.
Today I realized I was making something WAY harder than it needed to be. I had this idea and it just kept growing and expanding in my head. I wanted desperately to believe I could rise to the occasion so I kept pushing until I just hit a WALL.
That’s when I stepped back and was able to ask myself: What are you trying to prove?
I was placing hurdles in my own way just to prove to myself (and, presumably, others) that I could pull it off.
Whenever I notice myself pushing harder from a place of PROVING something rather than a place of LEARNING something, I know I need to take a second and hit reset. Remember: life’s hard enough without creating more adversity for yourself, so don’t make it harder than it has to be.
