How Frida Kahlo Changed My Life
I should probably give you a little more background about me. You already know that school made me lose my love of writing. Some other things happened that caused me to lose my love of all things creative. I became completely focused on business. I wanted to own my own law firm and that was what my life was about. I didn't read, didn't write anything but essays, didn't do crafts, just school. I was still at this point while I was in this class.
So anyways, when we started studying Frida I was very inspired by her. She lived her life the way she wanted to and didn't let society dictate it for her. Being the kind of woman that I am, I related to that. I started looking over her work and I basically looked at it the same way I looked at all art. I could appreciate the talent but it was just pretty pictures. Then I came across this painting.
Eventually I decided to start this blog. Journals just weren't enough. I needed a place to keep pictures, quotes, and everything else. Notebooks don't quite give you the same freedom that a blog does. Well that's not true for everyone, but it is for me. Having this blog is pushing me to continue exploring my creative self. Slowly, very slowly, my all business self and all creative self are merging. One day I'll be part business and part creative, and I'll be following whatever path that leads to which is who I think I was meant to be to begin with.
