according to a dictionary: Art is
1. [from the 1300s] Skill; its display, application, or expression… [from the 1600s] The expression or application of creative skill and imagination, typically in a visual form such as painting, drawing, or sculpture, producing works to be appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional power.
"know that Art is not truth. Art is a lie that makes us realize truth."
– Pablo Picasso (1881–1973), Spanish painter living in France, quoted in Dore Ashton's Picasso on Art (1972)
source of calm in a chaotic world
"What I dream of is an art of balance, of purity and serenity, devoid of troubling or depressing subject matter, an art which could be for every mental worker, for the businessman as well as the man of letters, for example, a soothing, calming influence on the mind, something like a good armchair which provides relaxation from physical fatigue."
– Henri Matisse (1869–1954), French artist, Notes of a Painter (1908)
Stop working on being less afraid there will always be things to be afraid of. Instead focus on being more courageous. With more courage you will get more chances, more accomplished, more choices..
So I was thinking about this concept for sometime. While I was working the other day, there was a child who is coloring in a coloring book. While he was coloring he was trying to rush, Stribling frantically back-and-forth as well in a circular motion. He looked up at me and I said, "hello little man why dont you slow down a little bit?" He says to me "you want to help me?" and I said "yeah I'll help you". I then grabbed some crayons and started coloring and said "hey I'll help you color, but I'm not going to color it for you. I explained to him I'll try to color all in the same direction make everything look for congruent. Well he says "why would I do that" I said "because there's no need to rush. The point of coloring a coloring book is to do just that, color. Don't be in a hurry to get done when you should take your time because it's coloring that is the joy. So enjoy coloring, it doesn't matter if it takes three days to color that page and it doesn't matter if it takes three years to color that picture as long as the picture it's colored the very best that you can do it. It's the process of coloring itself is the point so enjoy the process. What I took from that was quite amazing, that I found myself with tasks that I rush through as well not enjoying the thing that gets us to the end product but just excited for the end product. So after my coloring experience I love so many different aspects of my life but primarily art. Instead of not liking to do the little tedious tasks like masking off an area for wet sanding or even a rough draft, with each step of the process. I take my time to trace and outline. I try to color all of the same directions to make my life congruent. Now creating is a not so focus on the end result, but it's enjoying the process of creating itself. All of the process leads to a better product; which leads to the best product that I can I can make. It's the little things that end up making the final outcome great.
Fear is not a God given emotion. Does fear keep us safe at times? Yes it does. But besides keeping you alive it really serves no real purpose. Fear is imaginary. It is all in your head that is until it happens, but then it is just what happens, how scared you were before does not make a difference one way or another. When it is not a deterrent for your safety; what's going to happen will happen regardless of you being nervous or afraid so let go of it. Jump in with both feet. Have an interview and you are nervous? Don't be, it will be okay no matter what. You vein nervous or scared will not make the hiring manager hire you. It may prevent you from being hired. Don't let what might happen ruin what might happen! Only you can do that though, no one else. Like being born we are alone when it comes down to certain things. At those times walk by faith and not by sight. Be strong and put the imaginary monster back in the closet.
Love is and you can fill in the blank there. You could fill in all types of words ranging from blissful, happy, silly, stupid.they almost all fit or at least a lot of us would say yes they do.
To me I have beliefs that love never changes, if in love that love is forever . It never fades it is unconditional. Distance and time does not change that love, and it remains constant. People can pick up where they left off every single time regardless of circumstance.
It is about the need to be with the other and vice versa.
Love can overcome any other emotion ie jealousy, hatred, anger, frustration, etc.
You have to be open to it and risk yourself.
Love is about not being able to live without the other like when they are separated or one dies- the other will feel like half of them is gone .
A void never to be filled by another even if attempted. The piece will never be a perfect fit and there will always be that empty spot, unless one finds another love.
I would like to find a love that is just maddening. To be totally raw in who they are and who I am. That uniqueness and bond would be an industructable force that fairy tales are born from.
Love is one of the only perfect things we will ever have in an unperfect world

Concentrate on how you make others feel, while still sticking to who you truly are as a person. This will give you freedom and opportunities that you never would have thought you could have. Think about what others would say honestly about you when you are gone. (People who really know who you really are) if there aren't enough people who know who you really are then you are not being yourself as much as you should be. Plenty of people will dislike you we know this and that is ok. Be ok with people not liking you. Because I'd rather have 3 people LOVE ME. Then 1000 of them just like me. #peace love and everything in between
