Everyone expresses themselves differently.
People like to express themselves through writing, painting, designing, creating cool videos or crazy clothes. Doesn't matter what you're doing, what matters is that you're putting your energy elsewhere expressing how you feel and creating something new with that.
In my scenario, it's not different. I looked into a new way of expressing myself and releasing that energy out into the world, creating something new. It's not just a colorful backpack but the fact that I was expressing myself when I created it.
I created these designs because I was feeling something inside that I wanted to express outside. I wanted someone to see the bags and have a reaction, wanted them to feel something new (get happy or weirded out, etc.) but getting the energy MOVING nonetheless.
Sometimes we feel anxious or depressed and this is how I see it: when you're anxious perhaps you have an excess of energy that you could release by creating something and when depressed, do the opposite! Go somewhere to get energized from someone else's creation. That's why we have cool museums, cool clothes, cool books... It's all about getting that energy flowing. ☺️
