What Color is your emotions?
Once again, I found myself inspired by my good friend, Judith Westerfield's blog.
Creativity to the Max, is a fun and inspirational blog, you should check out if you haven't already!
Today she talked about How to Express Your Emotions Using Colors
So I did. Most of the time she uses paint with her groups, but it can get a bit messy when in bed, so I used my computer.
I didn't erase anything.
I just picked a brush and a color, and let loose.
This is what I came up with:
Resented are Mad, Sad, Glad, Fear, and Disgust.
This could not have come at a better time for me.
I feel like my emotions are all a jumble.
I noticed that Anger (or Mad) resembles a person, and seems to be holding on to Sad. But Glad is trying hard to over come it. Fear, feels much bigger in me...but he is hiding in the corner. Afraid.
I was surprised to find Disgust leaking into everything.
I've been in this bed for so long, I haven't even been out side for 12 days, and the day I went outside, it was to go to the hospital and come home.
I'm sure if I looked back in my journal (other blog) I could figure out the last time I had a really good day, and was able to spend some time away from the house.
I remember the day before Thanksgiving, we braved the grocery store, we needed 2 things. I almost broke down in tears and had a complete panic attack. I wasn't feeling bad, not with the vertigo and such like I so very often do...no this was because of my hearing. I couldn't tell which way sounds were coming from, I kept getting in people's way and didn't know it, people kept coming up behind me and scaring me. I was in a huge grocery store, with Stuart close by, and I felt so isolated, and overwhelmed by stimuli at the same time.
I may never go in a grocery store again. (I know that's a bit overly dramatic, but I usually shop at the Farmer's Market or our local Co-Op, both are much smaller, and more manageable. Even if I did cry the last time I was at the Co-Op.)
Right now, life is a bit overwhelming. I want to be mad at someone. I feel I'm taking it out on Stuart, and he's really trying his best. But I need to be mad at someone..I need to get some of this anger out.
I will...but I don't think I need to let it all out at once. If I did, well, they might describe our house as another Chernobyl. Complete Melt Down.
Thanks Judith for giving me what I needed today.
I'd love to see how other's express their feelings with color....so send me some, or show them on your blog.
You can do it, it doesn't take long, and it gives you something tangible to focus those emotions on.
