Trust Life a Little Bit – Maya Angelou
The full quote is this: “To those who have given up on love: I say, “Trust life a little bit.”
When I was painting the canvas I started thinking about the last year or so. Automatically if asked I would say that I totally trusted life, trusted to all work out. That all the ideas + the plans + the relationships + the dreams would work out. Sure there would be hard work, but I trusted everything to just be ok.
But life doesn’t always run smoothly does it? I mean this isn’t really headline news. Life can just suck with some real whammies which make you question everything. And that makes it really hard to trust everything can be ok.
During the process of this painting I made a startling realisation. I had gone from trusting + vulnerable to.. well to not. I kinda felt like I was a cheap battery rapidly running out of juice.
When I finished off the painting I knew that I needed to recharge my soul a bit. To stop going through the motions and basically sort my shit out. And I need to remember that while I don’t have all the answers just now I need to trust life again. Believe that it will all work out + now that everything will be okay.
What about you?
Have a great weekend.
