All my life I’ve heard this inner voice talking to me. I haven’t always paid attention, thinking that my rational, logical mind can make better decisions for me. Recently, I have been listening to my inner voice. When I’m in situations where I’m not sure what to do? where should I turn? Whom do I ask? Can I really believe that I’ve the answers? I now can honestly say that yes we all have the answers to all of our burning questions. I sit in the empty fields, looking at the sky, listening to myself, the quiet, the stillness, my inner voice. When we are still and open to listening to ourselves all the entanglements become clear. Once we let go of the chatter around us, we see what has been clear to us all along. The storms cease and the rainbows appear.
I’ve also realised that other people do not need to validate my feelings, my feelings are mine and I own them. Nobody can tell me how to feel or what I feel. I have been in situations where people have told me not to feel a certain way and I used to feel a rage inside me. Humans emotions are messy, indecipherable sometimes, but they pull you in, diving deep. I think that completely feeling our emotions, and listening to our inner voices are the keys to living an authentic life.
As a child I was brought up to do what my parents wanted me to do, but I had an inner rebellious voice that fought silently against their recommendations. I obeyed my parents on the surface but another part of me did what I wanted without them knowing. Was I living a lie? Was I being authentic to myself? Don’t all kids do that? When I was authentic to myself, I was happy and free.
I finally decided I needed to listen to my inner voice, so that I can be my authentic self, no matter how messy or non-con-formative it may be. If I cannot believe in my inner voice then how can I believe in me? Living two different lives is not being true to myself, much less other people. How can I expect someone to be true to me if I am not true to myself? Speaking my truth, owning my emotions, and listening to my intuition are now my new cornerstones in my life. I know these cornerstones will lead me to places I want to go. I only need to listen and believe.

I almost tasted heaven. After a year, today I finally picked up my brushes and opened the bag filled with my favorite colors.
Nothing can beat the combination of art and words. Strokes of paint with curves of letters. Whimsical art with thought provoking words.
