Some people get addicted to people, to drama, to situations, to drugs, to certain types of foods. When we try to break that addiction, we realize how difficult it is. Some give up and go back to living the same old life. Some dig deep down and find courage within. We understand consciously how hard it will be to let go, and we accept the ‘temporary’ hardship, knowing that on the other side, something new awaits us.
Letting go is for the courageous. Sticking to the path takes even more courage. Accepting that you have an addiction and that you want to change it, evolve from it … that in itself is a huge step. It’s very similar to the life of a dandelion.
Although dandelions sometimes are classified as weeds, their lives symbolize rebirth of something new. The wind blows, and their spores disperse and land far away, somewhere new, where they prosper and grow. Having the courage to allow the winds of change to blow through your life as you let go of your addiction, you land up somewhere completely new, different, unexplored. And yet it is here that you bloom, prosper and grow.
I created this artwork using oil paints on paper.
