☆ Be Who You Are. {Friday Art}


It took me a very long time to be comfortable in my skin. And to be totally honest there are days where I am still not 100% there.

You would think by now that I would be totally ok within myself.

But I am not sure that I will ever be totally ok. And I don’t believe this is a bad thing. I like that I am constantly trying new things, educating myself, changing up my hairstyles (try for that perfect look) and changing my wardrobe.

And I think I am ok with this. Maybe this is who I am.

And I wish that I could have received a letter from my future self, telling my gangly awkward and pimply fifteen year old self, that it is ok to be who you are.

So I was having one of those days, feeling like my awkward self and I was in the middle of painting some of my hanging inspirationals.

If you have been a reader for a while, you will know that I often paint what I am feeling + I this was one of those sessions.

Be Who You Are - Not Who You Think You Should Be.

Be Who You Are – Not Who You Think You Should Be.

I think living true to yourself is one of the hardest things to do. I think that there are a lot noise out there that makes it confusing and even hard to be who you are and not who you think you should be.

And I love that this is a lovely reminder to be ok in my skin, to be ok with myself and my life and my beliefs.

I don’t need to be someone else.

I just need to be me.

And you just need to be you. And that is what makes us all so very complicated and interesting!

By the way feel free to share this post + this painting with anyone you feel needs a gentle reminder that it’s ok to be you!

Have a great weekend.

    Stunning Kirstin..and a wonderful card for parents to give children, or hang in rooms of preteens!! I have no idea how old you are but at 32 something happens to women and they just leave behind the perception of who they think they should be and start being who they are! I find most of the best artists are the most humble!! So happy you are embracing the beautiful One of a kind you!!! I’m sure you want the same for your girls!! What a good example you will be!!

    Hugs Giggles
