If you feel good about who you are inside, it will radiate. – Patti Smith
This is a gentle reminder to all those who are struggling, stressing… procrastinating.
I adore Patti Smith and often reflect on her beautiful work. Her poetry and writing are so uplifting and otherworldly, sometimes it overwhelms me. She always seems centred and completely in tune with her sense of self as an artist and creator, her values shine through.
If they knock you down, you get up. If they knock you down again, get up. No matter how many times they knock you down, get up again. That is how you should go. (Katagiri Roshi)
No matter what your discipline – art, sport, science, entrepreneurship… Shoot For the Moon! 🌕🌑
Never give up.
Your effort is the achievement and your courage is the success.
Create to create.
Create to engage; help other people ‘feel’ something.
Park your ego.
Go your own way.
In life, the idea is to be happy… You live simple, you train hard, then you are free. (Eliud Kipchoge)
Human endurance is an incredible thing. How far can we go?
Do we have limits? Or, can we dig deep and go beyond what seems impossible?
Are we able to overcome fear and resistance in our mind in order to succeed?
Writing, or any creative discipline takes practice.
Once you begin, you question why it took you so long to get started and dive in.
Suddenly, you are lost in your art, you become obsessed until your fingers and imagination burn out.
It’s through practice that we get better.
“You learn to trust your deep self more and not give in to your voice that wants to avoid writing.” (Natalie Goldberg)
