“We are as indestructible as we believe ourselves to be.” – John Green
The mind works in ways that we don’t always comprehend. We ask ourselves why, yet no answers arrive to us. Our thoughts determine our outlook on life. The events in our lives get filtered by our perception; one that we have nurtured and adapted to our environment. We are what we think. We feel what we think. We behave according to our thoughts. Keep that in mind. Remember it. Tell yourself that even though you cannot change the events in your life, you can change the way you think about them.
“Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms — to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way.” – Viktor E. Frankl
“Nothing, Everything, Anything, Something: If you have nothing, then you have everything, because you have the freedom to do anything, without the fear of losing something.”
– Jarod Kintz
I often say that life’s just a matter of perspective. What we call reality is subjective. We interpret events and situations in a manner that best suits our interests and beliefs. Simply put, we see what we want to see.
There’s no surprise that these four words (nothing, everything, anything, something) are relative. Nothing is difficult to understand, anything is limited by our perception of freedom, while everything and something are matters of optimism and hope.
“It’s so much darker when a light goes out than it would have been if it had never shone.” – John Steinbeck
They say change is the only true constant in our lives. Defined as the process through which something becomes different. Some of us fight it, others choose to focus their energy on adapting to the new circumstances; to make the most out of whatever it is that has changed.
Change is inevitable.
There’s good and bad in our lives. There’s good and bad in the world around us. How we react to all that is entirely up to us.
But what I really what to write about is the so called “blessing in disguise.” Continue reading
Ever felt so out of balance that it seemed as if the entire universe was conspiring against you? Probably.
The idea is that you should try to live. No matter what. But how do we do that? Especially when one loses hope and faith and courage. When all one does is exist.
The important thing to remember is that we are here to fight the odds and beat them. Life’s a struggle because that’s the only way to learn, to grow, to evolve.
We become better by fighting against all that is trying to destroy us.
In the end, it’s entirely up to us. How we life, why…
You’ve got to hand it to Hirst. He does come up with some really catchy titles for his… thingies. Britain’s richest living artist…
Whether we like it or not, we live in a post-modern world. But the question is, “What’s art?”
What is the definition of art? And who can define it? Does art have something to do with the means we use to express our beliefs? Is art about how or why? Or what?
Is it enough for the artist to call a dead shark “art” for it to be art?
When it comes to fashion there are two things that I always keep in mind when sketching: The human body is merely a canvas for what I want to express and always create something elegant that compliments the person wearing it. I think many people peg fashion as something that is unimportant and superficial, which isn’t true. A lot of today’s fashion gets a bad rap because designers create clothes and fashion shows that aren’t grounded in a realistic setting. Continue reading
“The remarkable thing is that we really love our neighbor as ourselves: we do unto others as we do unto ourselves. We hate others when we hate ourselves. We are tolerant toward others when we tolerate ourselves. We forgive others when we forgive ourselves. We are prone to sacrifice others when we are ready to sacrifice ourselves.” – Eric Hoffer
Others: a simple word used to describe people. A lot of them. Every single human being on this earth besides yourself. Others. At times they seem too many, too angry, too bitter, too selfish. Too stupid. Other times, it just seems they just packed they’re gone.
It depends on you, actually. Continue reading
