As 2015 draws to a close, it's common to spend a little time reflecting on the past year--what were the highlights/lowlights, and what you hope to change in 2016. After reflecting on the past year, many of us will be making resolutions for the year to come--plans to better our lives in some way (more exercise, weight-loss/improve health, reading x number of books in a year, painting x number of paintings in a year, etc).
A few weeks ago, I finished a painting titled "Divergent" (pictured below). Divergent can be defined as: "tending to be different or develop in different directions." As you begin to think about your resolutions for the coming year, I encourage you to think about your own divergence, and the divergence in those around you. Rather than hiding those things that make you different, take some time to embrace them and appreciate all of the incredibly beautiful differences around you!
Have a very merry Christmas, and here's to a bright 2016!
