Being amongst people alway makes me wonder about them and about me. Observing reactions, different habits, belief systems, fascinates me how unique each of us is. We all have unique talents, special gifts, something that we may or may not have discovered yet. Just being around people is a great reflection of myself. Whatever I feel, whatever I think it is always about me.
One day I had a meeting with a few women. They were fantastic, and for a moment, I felt small, less than them. After I went through a lovingly deep conversation with myself, I simply realize that I cannot compare myself to any of them! I am just as unique as they are.
Looking back in time shows how much I’ve grown, how much I’ve changed, and that I’ve become a more loving, compassionate person, who is not afraid to give space to her emotions, even if those emotions are not the most pleasant ones. To give them the right to exist creates an opportunity to let go that which is not serving me anymore.
“The most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or touched, they are felt with the heart.”
~Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
Judging, underestimating myself and being insecure is something that I don’t want in my life anymore. Instead, I am aware of my strength, my specialities, my uniqueness, and I am committed to keep going on the road of love.
This painting is called You are special. I painted it for my wonderful friend as a personal gift. However the artwork was made for her, I truly know, that it could be for anyone, because the beauty of the rose is lying in every single one of us waiting to blossom.
