She Decided

Yesterday I wrote a phrase on my whiteboard, and it sort of stuck and has been swirling around in my mind.

She decided to start living the life she imagined. She believed she could, so she did. She replaced her fear of the unknown with curiosity. She looked around, and life was pretty amazing.

I decided to create a watercolor painting that depicted the feel and the thoughts circling my mind centered around this one concept: She decided to live the life she imagined.
To be honest, I don’t really know, what in detail, the life I imagine is, let alone, how to live it, but I know what I want it to feel like, I know what I want it to be like – full of passion and adventure and love and trust and friendship and caring. At least, that’s what sort of came out in the nonverbal thoughts of my emotions while I was painting.

    I love this quote. I have been thinking about life lately, and how there has to be more to it. Guess I’ll never know unless I go and do the things I’ve wanted to do and see the things I have wanted to see. Thank you for this quote, I guess you could say it’s quite the eye opener for me!! I think I’ll start by seeing if my mom would like to go to London with me!! Thank you!!
