“I don’t think the goal is,
‘How big a star did you ever become?’
I think the goal is,
‘Were you able to express yourself?’
And if you’re able to say yes,
in any field, you’ve won.
If you paint, write, do mosaics, knit –
if it’s solving that part of your brain saying,
‘I need to do this,’ you’ve won.”
– Albert Brooks
“Live life as though nobody is watching and express yourself
as though everyone is listening.”
– Nelson Mandela
“Live to express, not to impress.”
– Dare to Dream
Essentially, let our inner light shine, express it in our own unique style. When we allow ourselves to express freely, we give permission to others to freely express themselves. How amazing would that be?

btw…when looking at this mandala from another angle, you’ll see my playful expression of my shimmery metallic watercolors.
