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 3/04/2016:
In love, in your work, in your home, in your life… in ALL of these, I truly believe that it is within our power to receive EXACTLY what it is we dream of if. All we have to do is simply not settle for less. I have lived my life by this phrase, and it has brought me to more than a few painful impasses: ending relationships, quitting jobs, turning down clients and seemingly good opportunities. WHY? Because a few years ago I decided I had a clear vision for what I wanted my life to look like: a loving, supportive partner who makes me laugh; a flexible schedule dictated only by me; a job where I get to use my creativity and help people at the same time; a home that brings me peace and contentment. When I list these things out it seems so audacious, so improbable that one person should have so much good fortune. But I’ve proven to myself that it has nothing to do with good fortune and everything to do with working toward those ideals with my whole heart until I found them.
That doesn’t mean there aren’t times when we choose what’s less than ideal in order to make space or time or financial wiggle room for ourselves. And that’s perfectly okay. But remember, your dream life IS out there waiting for you; you just have to decide that you’re willing to forgo what’s easy or comfortable or convenient in order to get it. You get what you settle for, so don’t you dare settle for less than what you want out of life.
