This was the most imperfect year ever, but that’s ok.
For the first time in my life, I got to live and acknowledge all the insecurities that a young artist can ever encounter when getting into adulthood. First jobs, first deadlines, the first real epic fails and the real-life encounter with pain.
What did I learn from all these setbacks?
Hehe, what I learned is that there is never a right answer to our lives. It is a meander that develops and grows with us. Similar to an airplane setting off from LA to somewhere – the destination and the path that we decide to live in will change and depend on what we do with our actions. Setbacks will be there to challenge us and really make us think deeper of who we are and what we are in this world. Although, for the 99% of the population thy existence does not acknowledge the matter for the 1% is what makes us want to try again and challenge all the nos until finally, we get to the path we all dreamt off. So the setbacks have truly helped me to acknowledge my power and the sheer need to be more, and share more of my goodness.
Where to next?
This blog started off with a mandatory assignment that I had to follow. Although four years ago I did not understand the fullness of this journey, today I feel that I can use this as a way to filter and find answers for my inner self. I want to create more visually compelling work, that I can express these emotions, find the power to touch people and find solace in what I create.
I hope you’ll enjoy this journey
All the best for this festive season
