My mummy sees things in black and white at the moment with the odd speckles of grey.
Halftone colours on a blank canvas.
We’ve had an interesting start to the year already. Self doubt, sickness, stress and all round ‘meh’.
This new year I want her to see the rainbows in her life. All the colours that life has to offer.
Red, not like anger but family. Blood is thicker than water she needs to make more of an effort with her family.
Orange, like the ones I eat, the little segments each representing an aspect of her life. Husband, me, work, routine, personal time, hobbies, sleep. All parts of the orange together makes her whole.
Yellow, not just sickness (like the colour of my nappies) but the goodness and caring. Having the patience, courage and strength to be a better mum when things get tough.
Green, not just jealousy but hope and the realisation that everyone else has their own journey to live. Stop comparing yourself to others.
Blue, not just sadness but new horizons. Blue skies and sunny days are hopefully lying ahead.
Purple, the colour of Cadbury’s chocolate wrappers. In life you can NEVER have too much chocolate! Life is like a box of chocolates as someone famous once said…you never know what you’re gotta get. This new year, don’t limit yourself with things you can’t have. Silly fad diets and restrictions on things that make you happy. Just be happy.
We love this artwork from Stephanie Block, a local artist in Hampshire. We proudly hang it in our house and it serves a gentle reminder to put things into perspective when life gets tough.
Dear mummy, always look for the rainbow after the storm.
Love Bella x
