Sometimes it is the simple things in life that can make a big impact. For example, paint Ė the simple color
you can use in so many ways can make you more relaxed, more energized, more exited and more content. Paint is more than color Ė itís power.
Painting Your Nails
Your fingernails and toenails can change in a matter of minutes. Put on a coat of fingernail polish and you can see the difference. Even better than painting your nails yourself, take those nails to a salon and indulge yourself in a massage and spa therapy. Youíll emerge with beautiful toes and a completely relaxed state-of-mind. Plus those pretty toes will help you feel pretty as well in your first set of flip-flops this summer
Painting Your Room
Your room should be your own space, and a gallon of paint can put your signature up there for everyone to see. Grab a roller, brush and some paint and let your personality go wild. Use a dove grey to offer yourself peace and tranquility. A bight red to wake up energized and ready to take on any battle. A soft green to put you in a better state of mind, or a bright yellow to help you cheer up and feel the warmth of home all around you.
Painting Your Face
Face paints arenít just for carnivals anymore. Let your imagination and hands go wild with face paints for your next sporting event or school activity. You can paint bold stripes of color to show which team you support, but you can just as easily do a pastel and glitter confection for a school dance ala Drew Barrymore in Ever After.
Painting a Canvas
If youíre not in art, you should really try to take at least one art class while in school You might have more time for a summer school class or special art camp, so do that if youí can. Once you experience the joy of painting on a canvas, youíll be hooked. There is no right or wrong way to express yourself. You can paint huge splashes of color to make a highly emotional painting that makes you and others react with wonder or at least mild curiosity. Or you can use pastels and watercolor to paint a scene that is special to you. Framed, either picture will help you see inside yourself to the emotions that bubble just beneath the surface.
Paint a House
Painting your room is for you, but painting a house for someone who canít afford to do it herself is a moving experience. Paint is pretty inexpensive and fun and you can make quick work of a small house with a team of friends and a few paint brushes. The gratitude of the homeowner as she looks at that fresh coat of paint is truly joyful and can easily give you a new take on life.
