In My Own Life

Sometimes I feel

Like a fish out of water

In my own life.

Out Of Water

That’s not always a bad thing.

But it’s never comfortable.

Trying to fly when all I’ve ever done is swim.

  1. You wonder where you turned wrong. Hold your breath and dog paddle. It will sort itself out 🤔

    Ha! Great graphic Colleen. I love your drawings. Indeed, that is often not a bad thing – to feel outside your comfort zone.

    i think we all have those moments, hang in there and you’ll be comfortable once again.

  6. You feel that way until you realize you really are a bird after all and flying is easy! Cute post!

  7. Your art is superb. It tells your story even without the words. 😀 ❤ ❤

    I love love love Colleen’s way of thinking!!!

  14. Profound and great, funny picture. Plus, gosh, that’s a beautiful shade of blue!

    • Thank you PIF. I enjoyed making this. I sketched at lunch and couldn’t wait to get home and try the colors. I think I pretty well matched what I saw in my head. 🙂

  15. I love how you find ways to express how I feel, some days, er, well most days this month. Most of all, it is in your art that I find fun, quirk and truth. That blue is everywhere in my life btw.

    • Thank you MM !!! I am quite humbled that I can say anything that others can relate to. So thank you for that. I hope it’s a good blue. And that you are enjoying that discomfort in finding new things to love and do. 🙂
