10,000 Things

The meaning behind this piece is how my brain works. At age 14, I was diagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder (Inattentive). My brain is always going, thoughts represented by the red bubbles, but making decisions on which thoughts to pursue can be daunting. It is living in an anxious haze. The golden armor she wears signifies that this is an internal struggle. The fact that she is looking off in the distance shows she is determined to succeed, despite what she has been told was a handicap.
This is one of the first few pieces of art where I used my art as therapy. It helps me immensely, and it helps others feel that they are not the only ones who feel the way they do.
