You’ve been an artist for some time now and I know there are constant ups and downs that come with the trade, so what advice would you give your younger artist self?
Sorry it’s long and may sound kinda corny but this is what keeps me going and I tell myself everyday.
"Close your eyes and breathe because as long as you can breathe you still have the chance to grow and achieve.
Take your time and listen to what people have to say even if you don’t want to hear it or agree. Stay calm and take the positive out of the conversation, leave the negative behind because negativity is everyone’s downfall. Fu*k the negativity that life will throw at you! Take it as it comes as it’s always just around the corner, but don’t hold onto it as that’s what will weigh you down. It’s something that will unfortunately never expire in our world, learn to control it and try not to pass it on.
Play the patience game, don’t rush, take your time and take a step back if things are too overwhelming. Take those smaller steps if you need to.
If there’s something you truly want to achieve then manifest it! Put those thoughts into the universe and "your world", keep them on your mind everyday. Even if it’s just for a few seconds or hours each day, it’s really important to back yourself through manifestation… it will happen!
Lastly just have fun and take risks. Fun being what’s healthy for YOU in a situation and what makes YOU happy. Risks being that uneasy feeling that will only vanish once you’ve broken through the barrier, tried and achieved…or failed. If you fail, at least you’ll know you gave it a nudge and tried. Surround yourself with good energy and pass that energy on to others."
There’s nothing corny about that, those are really wise words so thank you for sharing them with us and I’ll be sure to adopt some of that for myself as will others reading this.
