Mental health has always been a very important subject in my life. This art piece has been in the works for a little while now. In today’s time, we need to look at the bigger picture. People struggle daily and you may never know it. I am a diagnosed insomniac, anxiety ridden, obsessive compulsive chronically depressed person, but that does not define me. Don’t let it define you.

Picture (1) - DISCIPLINE - The education uniforms the generations, establishes higher values in traditional learning and gives awareness to oneself. It teaches discipline and generates respect for the self. It decodes the art of living with moral reasoning.
Picture (2) - CREATIVITY - For a learned person every dimension of life is unique, enthralling and miraculous . The lack of insight and perspective to appreciate its upheavals deprives one from feeling its beauty, blessings and harmony.
Picture (3) - CHAOS - Chaos, anarchy and limitations sometimes act as a pedestal for struggle, from where a journey starts towards independence, freedom and peace. The darkness has some hidden messages in its core which can only be identified by the wise souls.
