Good Madness

1 January, 2015

“May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you’re wonderful, and don’t forget to makes some art – write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can. And I hope somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself”. – Neil Gaiman

Borrowed Words: Find Your Own Way

Find your own way, have an open spirit, and believe in your own beauty. ~ François Nars

Find your own way, have an open spirit, and believe in your own beauty. ~ François Nars

 

“Find your own way, have an open spirit, and believe in your own beauty.” Great advice from François Nars.

I have never had a problem finding my own way, forging my own path, despite challenges. I have always had an open spirit – acceptance of others, a great curiosity, and sense of adventure have never been things I have lacked. But, believing in my own beauty remains a tough one for me, both in physical appearance and also in my talents. While I truly believe everyone has something to offer the world, I’m not exactly sure what it is that I bring myself. I do know that I feel the most in tune with the natural order of things when I spend my time being creative in some way, whether that’s writing, painting, decorating, or creating digital graphics. Sometimes I feel it in the kitchen when I’m cooking or baking delicious things for my loved ones. But always with creativity, I feel closer to my purpose.

What beauty, talent, and purpose do you bring to this world? Have you been able to define it or is it something that is constantly evolving?

On Creation

4 May, 2012

You may not be a Picasso or Mozart but you don’t have to be. Just create to create. Create to remind yourself you’re still alive. Make stuff to inspire others to make something too. Create to learn a bit more about yourself. – Frederick Terral, Right Brain Terrain
