Creativity in the mundane

Sorry for the lack of posts, a lot has been going on in my life, and I have neglected my blog, I plan on being more serious about my blog, and am actually considering making video blogs, I would love to have feedback on that idea.

So recently I have been rattling off ideas of how to be more brave and daring, I find that when I do a self portrait I am hardly bold, and I have a few photo shoots where I need to strip away any insecurity I might have about myself and be bold, daring, brave, and unapologetic.

Art to me is truth, no lies, you should not have to apologize for art, it's a piece of your soul, it's your story , your emotions, your passion, it's you.

With that said, there so many things that are sooo typical it drives me insane, for instance duck lips, planking, mirror pictures etc etc.

So I thought I need to get creative with these little things that we see all the time, I would really love it if my artistic friends would come out of the wood work and we can challenge each other on what kind of typical picture you see or have seen and make it art. I think it would help us learn how to make fun of ourselves, it would help us learn how to be more creative, and take something absolutely ridiculous and make it our own.

I am really hoping you guys will take part in this, it  could have amazing potential , and I would be fascinated to see what my fellow artists come up with, to take part in this I think would be good for everyone, it's nice to not take ourselves so seriously, well even then you could take something silly and turn it into something glamorous.

I will be waiting with anticipation, your's truly,

Artist stuck

I find these days, my mind is in a million places, this can be bad for someone who has creative tendencies, as it effects my work heavily. I find that my emotions are directly tied to my work ( this goes for most artists )

Being that I have several emotions running through me right now, it's very hard to create. I feel like I have static in my head, and I am trying desperately to clear the static and get a clear picture out in the world.

Even now as I write , I am struggling to express myself. Perhaps this will be good for me, maybe I can take all the emotions and just in one photograph express the mass amount of things that run through my head.

Go for your dreams no matter the cost.

Dreams, goals, ambitions, are all something we have. A good of us, put those dreams and ambitions on hold, for various reasons. And there are a selective group who are capable of reaching their goals, but don't because someone has beat it in their head that they "can't do it" "should not do it"

It's time to stop being passive and it's time to tell people to mind their own business. Who are they to tell you , that you should not do what you love, or that you should hold back your passions. Remember that you are the one who is living your life. You are not someone's puppet or toy. You should take into account what will make you happy in the long run. It does not matter if you want to be a photojournalist, a pilot, a doctor or even a clown.

Life is full of obstacles and anything worth doing is going to be hard. When you have a goal it's like climbing a mountain, you have to prepare yourself for reaching your destination and you have keep going to matter how hard the climb to success is. Looking back on what people say will not help you if you truly think they should be telling you how to live your life.

I really hope that people learn how to follow the paths they were given, stop being so cautious , and live their lives, existing will never make you happy.

Breathing can be hard to do.

Do you ever have one of those moments in life where you feel like you can't breath.

Everything rushes at you in one instant and the air is gone? Your praying to God to give you the air you need, you tell yourself to calm down, but still you can't manage to get a breath.

You wish you were stronger, smarter, faster, braver..

And when the air escapes you , you are reminded of why you had those wishes in the first place.

Your body gets, hot, your head gets dizzy, you can't seem to find a focal point, and your lungs feel like they are going to burst .

I pray that anyone who experiences will find the peace of mind , that if you feel like the world is to much, it isn't .

You can be brave, your smart enough, good enough, you just have to see it before you allow anyone else to.
