i love paint, lingerie, nicotine fingers, long runs and blush on my cheeks. i love imperfections and marks from your love on my body. i love when i am free enough to merge all my thinking - the daily routine with the creative process. when art becomes life, and there is no cognitive dissonance.
when i am calm enough to realize that everything is everything, and painting is running, and artistic excellence is athletic excellence.
when i am bold enough to see outside what i've been told. to release myself from a culture that tells me to define my worth through relationships with men, even though i've never much cared for them.
self-worth is built upon through doing the things that scare us and lifting the things that are designed to weight us down. you build upon your worth by developing positive experiences in working towards your passions. that is why every day is so important - we are building, moving, progressing. every book, song, trip, person is contributing to the narrative.
become brave enough to write your own story. be messy and own all of it.
