Occasionally there are weeks where I am not quite sure what to write about. I think it’s a common thing for most authors out there to have one million and one ideas and not enough brain power to channel them all at once. sometimes I’m at a complete standstill with absolutely no ideas and others I’m like a hamster on a wheel where I can’t quite keep up with my own ideas.
This is one of these weeks, so I’m going to share with you a piece that I did back in 2014. Now, you may notice that there’s an ‘H’ instead of an ‘S’ next to my name and that’s because I created this gem BEFORE I was married when I was still engaged. I wish I could say something inspired this piece such as the movie ‘Scream’ (which definitely influenced it quite a bit, I mean come on?) but this piece was sincerely created out of boredom. I was sketching on the app my brushes and low and behold this was the end result.
When I look at this piece I think about just how quickly life goes. The things that we worry about each and every day (which take up so much space in our brain) can literally and figuratively kill us with worry and fear. When I look at this piece I am reminded of just how short life can be and how quickly we can blink and not be here. As morbid as it sounds, we are not guaranteed tomorrow and despite what we may say to our coworkers when we leave work each day the truth is we can only hope and pray we’re given another chance to wake up tomorrow.
We spend so much time worrying about having enough that we sometimes forget we are enough. Instead of worrying about deadlines, futures, and money it’s important to stop and take five minutes a day to catch our breath by looking to those who already think we do have it all. Put simply, if you were a character in the movie ‘Scream’ and the main antagonist had you cornered, would you really be worried about all the petty things that you worry about in your day-to-day life or would you be worried about your legacy and the people you love being left behind?
Love you. Mean it.
