Desert In Color: Be The Rainbow


Photography / Glam: Mayra Lozano

You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them. Try to be a rainbow in someone’s cloud. Do not complain. Make every effort to change things you do not like. If you cannot make a change, change the way you have been thinking. You might find a new solution.— Maya Angelou

Throughout this series I've blown past the wind, climbed mountains, and have lit up the world in smoke bomb fire. And now... it was time to FLY IN THE SKY.

As one of my all-time favorite leaders of wisdom Maya Angelou says so beautifully above, we've all experienced moments in our lives in which we may have wished never happened. But it's not about the cards we've been dealt with, yet instead, the true test lies with us deciding how we’ll choose to move forward from these moments to create who we become after.

Rainbows are known to always come after storms—which is the symbol with today’s photo shoot. No matter what life gives us, we have the ability to climb the highest & most difficult mountains and turn every cloudy situation into a beautiful rainbow. Life is about perspective and how we want to look at things. And as Maya Angelou says above—sometimes we just need to shift the way we think to make a change.

This series has been all about bringing & creating some form of color and rainbow to each stop in the desert. But sometimes you just need to realize... YOU have the power to simply be that rainbow.
