Me-Flection Day #11: Be Puzzled
The Challenge: Create a self-portrait incorporating the theme of puzzles, allowing the exercise to provide insight into a particular question you're pondering.
My Question: What can I do to figure out where and what I'm meant to be doing in life.
When it is complete, go back to the question you asked and set your timer for 10 minutes. Answer the question, free-form, for the entire 10 minutes, and see what comes up.
The picture of the girl I created is standing beside a train track. I think the train track could be symbolic of someone who is going somewhere, or traveling, or about to embark upon a journey. The fact that she is barefoot makes me think that she is just wondering. She's also looking off into the distance, which makes it appear as if she's looking for something or awaiting something. Maybe she's eager for the train or a trip. Another idea, she could be awaiting something/someone to arrive via the train. The fact that she's barefoot makes me think she's a free spirit, she's eager for her feet to touch the earth.
I think my creating this picture in reflection to the question could be a message from myself to keep wondering, keep looking into the horizon in expectancy of good things to come...because through my personal voyages and the gifts of the universe, I'll eventually realize where I'm meant to be and what I'm meant to do.
Perhaps the self actualization occurs merely in the living of life. To go do and be what I enjoy, and there I'll find my place.
