I'm never sure of what comes next. Unexpected events, people and situations are always happening. It's really how you act (not react) that'll show what you're made of. I've typically been highly reactive and the results were not always what was helpful to the situation.
Anger, hot headedness and fear used to consume me for days on end. Creativity would be at an all time low and bouts of panic would be the theme.
These days I'm fairly calm and do my best to create space for situations that rise. Expanding to allow the emotions to ride through me as you would ride through a wave. Rather than getting identified with the life situation, I let it flow through me. I don't challenge thoughts or give them time. Time is a killer. When you give time to negative feelings, situations and events more time is created. Time for feeling terrible. Creativity doesn't require time, it requires presence.
This piece represents the cathartic exercise of most situations that would cause unnecessary suffering. Creating a piece of art rather than dwelling on events that weren't in my control to begin with is a way of transcending so called problems. I never thought much of this piece till I shared it. People have had a wonderful response towards it. It's still a mystery to me why this piece rather than some of my more comprehensive works but I'm grateful non the less.
