"be your own kind of beautiful". internationals shop here. dutch/belgian shop here.
a sweet reminder that you can and may be whoever you are. with all your quirks and antics. you are just human just like anybody else, but maybe a little bit too hard on yourself…. everytime you create an art journal page (daily i hope!), you can read this message out loud to yourself “be your own kind of beautiful”. you are allowed to be YOU <3.
"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.
this is by FAR the most popular Revlie Art Journal ordered to date. is it because there is a sweet swear-word on the cover :P?
"today i shall not give a fuck". or maybe it's the compete sentiment around it....
whatever it is, it is my favorite also. because i made the original for one of my sweet friends who was very sick at the time. she's up & running again luckely and knowing that my drawing brought a smile to her face, keeps me wanting make more designs <3.
you can get this cute as fuck art journal in my Etsyshopor if you are Dutch or Belgian, shop in my other shop.
