3-16-17 Embrace the Negative Space

What the heck does that mean, “embrace the negative space?” It’s not what it sounds like. I’m talking in art terms for this post. There are times in life where you feel like you’re stuck in limbo. In the midst of something that’s about to happen, but not yet; in that weird timeframe of waiting. I’m calling that “negative space.” In art terms, if you draw on a piece of white paper, the space you didn’t draw on is called “negative space.” If you didn’t have that negative space, your drawing would not have a distinct shape. The entire page would be the same, without any kind of contrast or transition. Same goes for these “limbo” or “in between” moments in life. We can’t force or hurry certain things. So why not embrace the negative space while it’s here?
