"a ship is always safe at shore but that is not what it's built for. - Albert Einstein"
oh. and ain't that the truth. but how hard is it to go after you want, knowing you are gonna take risks...?!
or "Man cannot discover new oceans unless he has the courage to lose sight of the shore" by Andre Gide.
you know it is true, but it still is something so many of us are struggling with. me too! you know you want to move forward, you know IF you have the guts to make some decisions, you CAN move forward. and the reward afterwards USUALLY is great. but not always.... and that is what makes it so freaking scary at the same time.
but you know what? you can never ever learn if you don't try. sometimes you win, sometimes you loose. and for me, it doesn't even feel like losing. it feels like: knowing that something doesn't work. although you gave it your everything. sometimes it just doesn't work, wasn't meant to be, not your door to open. and sometimes you just have to draw the line and say "it's okay". i've tried, and it's not for me.
but never ever NOT TRY. always try. see where you go. find out where the path leads you too. leave that shore and go on that adventure. you will ALWAYS learn <3.
i love seeing other artists work, so i created this little 2,5 minute video for you to get a glimpse! not the complete canvas, are you freaking serious! just a sneak of how i work. and yes i really have tried to stay out of the shot as much as possible. and i'm wearing NOT my favorite clothes (jeans and shirt) but didn't want to ruin my cute dresses :D. but hey, i'm OK. this is me and that's lovely <3.
i seriously love ICY weather. guess i am "cryophilic" -> preferring or thriving at low temperatures". it's no secret i can do absolute NOTHING when the temperature is above 25 degrees (celcius). i seriously hate hot weather. my brain just doesn't function anymore, so does my body. i can only sit, sweat and be irritated. yes. charming huh?! so the weather these days here have been so good to me. cold, sunny, fresh and icy. although my muscles hurt more than ever, i do FEEL better with these temperatures.
it's like, you really have to go through darkness to appreciate the light so much. even though life can be such a bitch, there will always be light in unexpected places. find those places. find that light.
are you artjournaling everyday already? why not? give it a go!
"GROW through what you go through". and oh yes, every obstacle you have to overcome, every person that pushes your buttons like BIG TIME, every situation that get's your heart racing, you have to deal with and you GROW so much by going through ordeals.
guess i'm just simply addicted to drawing girls, watercolors & doodling flowers. you're welcome 😜💗
