Noticing certain themes in your life can help illuminate aspects of your own true self.
For a brief period in my early twenties I seemed to be attracted to circles, incorporating them in various works of art. Years later my designs came “full circle” when I created my first ELLU Macro Tote, using circle designs that seemed oddly familiar.
Reflecting on this “circle theme” brought me back to my youth growing up on the plains of the midwest surrounded by many examples of circles and cycles. Sunrise-sunset, full moon-new moon, planting-harvesting, cycles of definite seasons, etc. are fond memories influencing how I express myself through my ELLU designs today.
Curiosity and life wisdom have given me a better understanding of the significance of this circular shape that surrounds us from microcosm to macrocosm and is revered by so many cultures to this day. Reflecting on this “circle theme” has helped me tap into aspects of my own true self.
Let us know about the “themes” shedding light on your true self!
