Are we all born as a blank canvas?
It doesn’t matter. We create and re-create ourselves over and over as we go through life. I know that I have wanted to, on many occasions, re-invent myself, change my life, write a new story.
I am a work in progress. I have no idea what it will look like in the end, but I am intending it to be a masterpiece. My life may be like an abstract painting that causes viewers to raise an eyebrow or screw up their face in confusion or shake their head in disbelief.
But it’s my palette, my choice of media, my relevant colours.
I assert my right to splash and splatter the paint in any fashion that feels most ‘me’. I will not be to everyone’s taste and that’s okay. It’s more than okay. It demonstrates my unique, one-of-a-kind-ness. I do not want my life to be a carbon copy of another’s. I do not want to be remembered by my photographs alone. I want to create an impact, a movement that will spiral upward and beyond my earth years.
Creation is an immense power we humans have. I intend to use mine fully, daily, in every way I possibly can.
How about you?
