Day 4: addressing unkind thoughts of myself and others. This one was very visceral and Ive been using color to help my feelings reflect in my paintings so here I used red for the unkind thought of anger and blue for the sad one, I wrote in the corner "this isnt everything you are" to represent that you arent just one color, not even just two, sometimes both or even more but any way you're feeling that day it doesn’t represent your whole self, the same way it doesnt represent the people that hurted you. Reaaaally felt this one deep in my soul.

Day 3: you're part of something bigger (in the world, in your job, in yourself, literally everyone new you meet is something greater than what you're seeing right now)

Day 1: Name a feeling 

"Feeling stuck" is a common feeling in my daily life, I have a job where constantly I have a lot of tasks and very little time to do them so my mind is kinda cluttered with all this things to do and not really knowing where it starts and where it finishes, also I have always been anxious of leaving something behind and not meeting the standards that my boss or coworkers have of how fast something needs to be done.


I chose the phrase "you don't have to finish everything today", I'm trying to not care too much if I leave some unread email today, I can do it tomorrow and for other people it will actually make no difference at all if I finish today at 11pm or tomorrow at 11am but it will make a lot of difference in me.
