When Two Worlds Collide-sometimes they mesh, sometimes they don’t

Sell Art Online

 

People like to say that opposites attract when referring to a relationship.

Have you ever noticed those couples out there in your world that have you scratching your head, thinking, “HUH?”

She is a morning person, He is a night owl.

She loves to go out and about the town. He prefers to stay home and watch TV.

She loves the ballet. He loves Monday Night Football.

Her favorite meal of the day is breakfast. He can’t put anything in his stomach earlier than noon.

She likes soups and salads. He loves Junk Food.

These two people for whatever reason couldn’t be more wrong for each other.

It looks like a completely mismatched pair.

For some the two will never see eye to eye on anything.

Their union is a heartbreak just waiting to happen.

And then there are some, after some pushing and pulling, they decide that the differences between them is what is special about them. Their common respect for the other allows the freedom for each of them to be who they truly are and the love grows from that.

This painting is a reflection of that idea.

At the top of the painting you can see the clash between the colors on each opposite side. The colors do not mesh, they do not come together in any way. There is a definite dividing line between them, but as your eyes travel down the middle of the painting you will see two hearts who truly want to become one.

When two people come together and decide that the differences among them is okay, you can see underneath the two hearts, a blending of colors.

What was once red, black, white and yellow clashing against each other now blend into a pinkish color meshed together to make a new color. Or you see a crossing over of colors that represents the compromise some couples will take to appreciate the differences between them and still keep their own individuality.

When two worlds collide, sometimes it does not work out.

But sometimes it can.

The Ladder of Life

Struggle.

What can you do?

Struggle is a funny thing. You are trying to climb up this ladder because there is something up there at the top you want. But the ladder you are climbing up is unsteady and worn . At any moment you feel like a rung will just snap and throw you to the ground.

How do you keep on going up?

One step at a time. Yes there are chances and risks involved. It would be so much easier if you had a ladder that was brand new and sturdy, but that is not your case. You can tape up the parts of the ladder that are weak but that is a temporary fix and still may not solve your problem.

You could be tired from the climb especially if you have been climbing up this ladder for a long time.

Disappointment and discouragement are the weak parts of your ladder that try to keep you on an uneven keel but if you look at the ladder with really open eyes, you could probably find other parts to it that are still strong and hold onto to those parts that are strong until you get to the top.

Drive and determination are the strong parts of the ladder and the strong parts that are inside you. If you are afraid of heights, the last thing you should do is look down. Especially if you are closer to the top because if you do look down, you could lose ground and slip. The thing you fear most, is the long fall.

But if you just keep looking up and stay focused on what you wanted up there at the top. Stay really focused and climb up this ladder just one rung at a time, you will see yourself getting closer and closer to the top.

Each time you reach out for a higher rung you have to let go of the the one below or you won’t get anywhere.

Every time you see yourself “one step up”, you can feed on that accomplishment to give you the energy and enthusiasm to keep on. Before you know it, you will be exactly where you want to be at the top because of the effort and hard work you put in first.
