At one time or another, many of us have taken a look at our life, our career, our family, ourselves, and thought, “Is this it?” So much of our ambitions are crafted by a socialized norm of what should be – what happiness is supposed to look and feel like. How do you read the woman’s expression in the painting? Has she found what she’s looking for, or are there dreams waiting to be brought to life? Take a look around the life you’ve created. Is this it? If not, what are you craving? What new paths can you begin to carve for yourself in a world that’s yours to build?
