Hey, there was a meme I was dissatisfied by, so I had some commentary, made a list of my own, of what stops change, in my life.
I realized it would make a terrible meme because it was too much. Then I realized there were factors inside me and outside me. So I thought I could make an art, to show the factors inside and outside me.
Could be depressing, but I was happy to make it, and see these things clear in front of me. I hope you don’t find it too much of a downer, reader.
In a way, I can do anything. I’d like to be invincible, unstoppable–golden Laura-Marie, powerful as the sun. In a way, I have a lot of factors against me. What can we control–what can we not control.
What would your list look like? Do you want change?
I used to be terrified of change. Now I like it. I understand the plant that isn’t growing is probably dying. If we need to keep changing to live, I want to try to direct the change and make sure it corresponds with my values.
I want to make one also about what helps change.
Here’s the original meme, which is commentary on a “pull yourself up by your own bootstraps” self-sufficiency idea. I guess I revised the revision! So there you go.
