Expressing through art

Earlier I had an art session which needed me to decorate a box to show or express my feelings.  We were told to decorate the outer box as to represent how people see us and the inner box as to show how we feel about our self And the attached picture above was my creation. We were given 1hr to decorate it and another hour to explained on our creation. 

Subconsciously,  I just do as what I feel and paste whatever that my mind wanted me to paste on the box.

Let me explained on the outer side first.  

Living in this fast pace society humans tend to be competitive and sometimes we do something without thinking much of the consequences. 

As for the top of the box  you noticed I paste a colourful flowery silhouette of a person with the word  special.  That figure is representing me with  my colourful, loud and bold character and personality.  The colours basically representing my jovial,  go with the flow type of person and always do something to make myself feels good.  Through experiences Ive leant in order to make your life beautiful you have to change how you portray yourself and the way you think about yourself.   

As far as I know,  some  people that knows me able to accept my character but some just can’t. If you ask me why I don’t think I know why.  Lol.  

I never feel sad if a person can’t click with me as I believe I am special and there’s other people that will appreciate me as a friend or a human being.  

Last few month has been a rough months for me,  I learnt who is my true friends,  I’ve learnt on my mistakes,  and I realised that everything that happen to us have been planned by the almighty.  ‘He’  gave us challenges because he know we are strong and able to handle it and at the same time he want us to realised on our wrong doing.  If you noticed there’s many eyes were pasted on the cover of the box. Basically that representing people around us.  Humans can’t escape from making mistakes and we also have the right to judge and make an assumption on a situation we see.  Those eyes are my threat. Even though I know I don’t care on what others think about me but through the stares I somehow get insecure. Lol.  Does it sound contradicting?? Lol

We may think positively in every situation we faced but as humans we have a feeling that lead to ego,  insecure and so on to appear. 

Alright so now let’s move on to the side of the box.  Ok the sides basically showing my interest and goals in life.  I am a people-oriented and therefore I appreciate freedom. Family and friends that I can rely on are the pillars of motivation  for me.  I don’t like to be lock in a space,  I will get easily bored and i am nature person.  That’s somehow a summarize on the outer side of the box or my expression of how people see on me. 

OK the above are the back of the cover. The tiger represents myself and the butterfly representing my goals.  Yup,  it’s hard for me to chase my goals as there’s no such thing as smooth journey in life.  We have to fall,  injured, cry,  suffer before we achieved to what we want it to be.  And the word FABULOUS  Basically just shows my personality as I always try to  think positively in every situation I faced.  

And now the last part which is inner side of the box which expressing how I feel about myself. 

OK I realised our life is like a wave that goes up and down,  Even though we know we try our best to be cheerful and stay positive but there’s a corner of sadness and sorrow in us.  Today we may feel happy the next day we feel stressed up it’s uncertain.  The red colour representing my sadness and worries as I always tend to think too much and the blue representing my happiness.  The rest such as stars and shinning papers just representing my goals  that I have that Im still striving to achieve. 

 Ok so basically here’s my share on what I feel about my life.  Do tag me if you feel like you wanna share urs.  Let us share some love and learn from one another.
