Eleanor Roosevelt once said "The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and with out fear for newer and richer experiences."
I am certain I was born with the soul of an artist, as many of us instinctively feel inside. But when we've chosen a creative career path do we just happen to be lucky enough to express ourselves through our work?
The point is no one is confined to the chains of living life ankles deep in the mindset of "I just happen to be lucky enough". We chose our destiny, yes.
As artists we have the opportunity to touch peoples lives daily. It is important to seek balance to allow for life to speak to us creatively while maintaining a balance of curiosity and creative authenticity. This allows for the foundation of a solid base to our being.
It helps if you’re lucky. But when you are in tune to your creative soul as an artist, others who are equally as passionate and equally driven will feel that connection. This is the only connection to seek. A true sense of self = a true breath of authenticity.
Even in a world of fashion and beauty, I'm finding this approach to be magnetic.
Pay no mind to rejection and allow yourself to simply be...
TO BE INSPIRED.
Follow along as an artist seeks inspiration, innovation and adaptation.
