Life is a blank canvas, and you need to throw all the paint on it you can.

Danny Kaye

Sometime we see our life as dull and not very interesting. Waking up in the morning, going to work, coming home, sleep and repeat. We are going through the motion and same routine everyday. You might say, ‘I don’t have the time for things I want to do’ or ‘I don’t have the money for things I want to buy’. However, we should remember that who we are is the result of what we choose to be. We are all given a blank piece of paper and a paintbrush in our hands. It is up to us to paint our life the way we want. With each day, each brush stroke of colours is being painted in our life. Live your life by design and paint your life with colours as we are the artist of our life.

However, never allow someone else to steal your paintbrush away and paint your life the way they want. There are always people who want to control you and talk you out of your dreams and therefore forces you to give up your brush. In times like this, we should quickly gain back control of our brush and paint off the mark and stains they left on your paper and start painting your life back on track.

Life is like a canvas, It starts blank, open to loving and colourful strokes, with each and everyday we add more colours, more texture and more life to our canvas.

Other times, we might think that life is not fair, we feel that we are in a disadvantage as we are given a paper with scribbles rather than a blank one. We may say things like, ‘I am born poor’, ‘I am born without sight’. All these are sufficient reasons to convince yourself that we can’t paint our life the way we want. However, it is still up to us to paint our life and colour it the best as we can. For example, the picture below on the left shows a scribble by a 2 year old child and on the right shows an artist improvising, improving, painting and colouring the scribble and turning it into a fine masterpiece. Therefore, no matter what life throws at us, we are still able to control our life and reach our destiny.
