Be your biggest fan! I feel deflated from time to time. I sometimes feel like a limp balloon sitting on the floor after a blast around the room. But even within those times, I find the strength to tell myself that I am still worthy of every moment. I tell myself that I am enough, regardless of how I feel right now.
The oil painting I made of this subject uses pieces of paper glued to the canvas to create fun textures and serve as an uplifting message to myself and to you. Give yourself that positive reminder that you are enough every single day with this playful image.
A goal slips through the cracks. Something you hoped to achieve didn’t happen how you thought it would and now, like a balloon, you are limp and flimsy. You disappointed yourself. You let down the one person who is around all the time: you.
This gives you two choices. You can either give up entirely. You can let that lack of confidence and complete loss of optimism bring you down until you are lying helpless and deflated like a popped balloon on the floor. Or, you can slowly fill yourself back up. Breath by breath, you can let yourself rise.
