Be who you are.....

Yet another page from my art journal......

“Be who you are and say what you feel,
because those who mind don't matter,
and those who matter don't mind  -   Dr Seuss

 Warning--- text heavy post!!!!..hopefully you will stay with me!

this particular page hold a very special place in my heart , since the quote applies to me a 100%!..
(This is the journaling behind the page)
("Way before I came across this quote , I had been living my life by this very principle. I have always believed that God took the time to make us  all different from each other for a reason  and we should not meddle with it !

 I love to take and if asked, give, good constructive criticism and feedback because I feel it makes a better person out of us but at the same time I refuse to sugar coat my words just to please people!  When someone does ask me  a sugar coated opinion , I always feel like telling them..... " If this an Alter Ego Emergency please hang up and dial ........"!!!!!!!

Growing up  or for that matter even now I often hear people  say  " why can't you be more like .......". which always makes me  wonder how and why I would want to be anybody else when I already am who I am!   Would I not trip and fall if I wore someone elses shoes, would it not be ill fitting if I wore someone else's clothes then why wear someone else's nature?

 We should be true to ourselves , true to the nature we were born with. At the end of the day we have none to answer but our inner soul. This might be called headstrong or holding  up one's individuality, either way ..THIS IS who I am!!)

 Supplies- Strathmore visual journal, faber Castell gelatos, Gesso, acrylic paints,inktense pencils,stamps.

This page came about when I was in the midst of  flak for reasons unknown or perhaps  for the simple reason of  just being  myself and  since I love to vent in color, I sat with my journal and came up with this!
