I am not immune to getting bummed out about life sometimes. For the most part, I try to look for the best in every situation and that's how I climb out of "the dip", I like to call it, in the roller coaster of life. Whatever it is that causes the dip, just know that depression is at the bottom of the emotional scale and any feeling other than that is moving up the emotional scale. So if you're blue and you then find yourself frustrated, just know you're heading out of the dip and on the upswing of the roller coaster ride. People don't often think frustration is good but it feels a heck of a lot better than feeling depressed. It's kind of comforting to know that there is an emotional scale and all your feelings can lead you to another and another and another, until you eventually find some relief. You move up the scale and down the scale and it's just part of life. I love to travel and often joke that I want to be teleported to the places I dream about. I've found that reveling in good memories or doing creative visualization is a great way to stay in a hopeful and appreciative place without noticing the absence of what is wanted. For this weeks art piece, I drew this a couple of weeks ago and came back to it to finish it. I love revisiting art pieces to see things from a different perspective with new energy. This piece was from an actual photo I took on a road trip just outside of Steamboat Springs, Colorado - it's called "All the Pretty Horses".
Happy Wednesday ❤
