The Art of Self Discovery

A few weeks ago I came across the word Metanioa. It’s a Greek word meaning a transformative change of heart; especially : a spiritual conversion.
Almost immediately I thought of self discovery and finding your true self.
Here is the dictionary definition of Self Discovery: the act or process of achieving self-knowledge
I am a self-taught artist who loves natures photography. As I improved my art, I learned that I was also discovering my self through my artwork. I believe that art tells the story of the artist behind that work. I mean why create art if you are not going to get something from that art piece.  If you do something with passion, it will always be worth it!
Here are a series of photos that I have taken paired with a quote that I have written and a bible verse.
Sometimes you have to isolate yourself to find yourself. Remove your emotions. Discover the truth. Remove the people. Discover the truth. Isolate your mind. Isolate your heart. Discover the truth. Find yourself. ~ Abby(purelifephotoss)

By the grace of God, I am what I am. – Corinthians 25:10

Sometimes you must isolate yourself completely to discover what’s the most important to you! Yes, we have bad times and wish to be left alone. That alone time is important, it allows you to think about life, about your hopes, about your needs.
Allow your spirit to lead. Allow your mind to be free. Allow your heart to search. Wander. ~ Abby(purelifephotoss)

All of us like sheep have gone astray, Each of us has turned to his own way; But the LORD has caused the iniquity of us all To fall on Him. – Isaiah 53:6

Walk through life with open arms. Let your spirit lead you through both the good and the bad choices in life. In the end you will make the right choice.  If you have an open-heart you will find something to fill the empty space. Wander aimlessly through life with open arms, a free mind and, a heart that is willing to love.
From time to time we believe we are lost until we turn to him. He said you are not lost, you are just making a point of finding the real you. – Abby(purelifephotoss)

“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” – Matthew 6:34

Sometimes you must take the path that is not perfect. No one is perfect, this is why we hold faith close. When we lose ourselves we are simply discovering something new about ourselves.
Thank you for looking at my art. All of these pictures I have taken.
