Art Blog: I AM … Ali

I am Ali low res

I AM … Ali.

As kids, we were ‘programmed’ to believe that we have to fit in, we have to behave in a certain way. If we do not, then we are not ‘rewarded’.  At a very young age, we go through emotional turmoil, where we are met with disapproval, scolding, cold shoulders, withholding of love if we deviate. And soon we begin to think we are unworthy. As we grow older, our self worth within society starts to get measured by the car we drive, who we date, success, promotions, pay rises. And this continues to add more and more layers on our worthiness issues.

Ali is the guy within us who knows that our self worth is NOT determined by society, by what people around us think about us. Ali knows that deep within us, deep in the very core of our being, we are worthy. Ali knows that we are no ‘less’ than the guy next to us. Our worthiness is not measured by money. It doesn’t make a man less than his compatriot. You were born worthy. That is a given fact. You were born to be you – uniquely you. Not a copy. An original beautiful you.

The only way to break this vicious cycle is to claim back your power. When you truly believe and know that you are worthy, then no matter what anyone says or does, no matter how much society tries to squeeze you into its boring box of ‘what’s acceptable’ … it won’t happen. Your worthiness does not depend on anything or anyone. You have the power to change anything and everything in your life. And only you have the power to claim back your self worth and own it forever.

This is one of my original signature series of abstract portraits that I am working on.  Usually created in a deep meditative state, with headphones on … just connected to my soul.  I used charcoal to create this abstract portrait on paper.

The original artwork & high resolution digital downloads of the artwork are available on Etsy.

Art Blog: Sexy Woman

There is something divine and beautiful about a woman who lives and breathes her sexuality with absolutely no shame, no guilt. A good friend of mine Samar Shera said in her blog, “The curves. The beauty. The resilience – features you will never see more prevalent than the gracious body women have been bestowed with.”

It’s time every woman celebrates her femininity, her curves, her brains, her confidence, her achievements … it’s time we celebrate who we truly are.

Art Blog: Abstract Sexy Woman

A friend of mine, Samar Shera, wrote on her blog, “I officially denounce Superwoman. I would rather be my version of happy than show the world I am living its dream.”

This resonates so true with me since I am now living my version of happy. To me, the simple things matter – love, joy, laughter, quiet conversations. After walking out of the rat race, its made me realize that I was never my authentic self. I was always a version of what I had to be in that very moment to get things done.

Today, as I live my version of happy, I am being true to why I am really on this earth. I am who I am. The sexy glorious me, who celebrates each day every little victory I achieve. I celebrate ME.

It’s time for every woman to celebrate who she really is. Celebrate your authentic sexy self!
