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 4/8/2016:
Life can sometimes feel like a walk across a tight rope — lean too far one way you’ll fall. Most days I feel pretty good about the way I’m balancing it all, deflecting whatever distractions or challenges try to knock me off my rope… trying to stay mindful of all the things that help me thrive.
Other times, though? Other times it feels like despite my best efforts I’m one step away from a big fall. Today felt like one of those days. There were SO many things vying for my full attention: friends, family, work, art, health.. the list goes on. This afternoon it felt like it was all coming to a head and I could sense myself starting to get down on myself for not doing a better job of managing it all.
But before I could allow myself to go down that road, my kind inner champion thankfully spoke up to remind myself: You’re doing the best you can.
The truth is, I may not be able to balance all of those different aspects of my life perfectly, but I’m always TRYING. I’m always asking myself how I can show up better next time, form better habits, take a little more from column a and move it to column b. And today I’m giving myself credit for that. An A for EFFORT. Because as we all know, there is no perfect state of balance that we’re able to attain. There is no tight rope walk that exists without the sway from side to side or the occasional fall. But we’re all doing the best we can, and for me, today, that’s enough.
