Two Thoughts

I encountered two thoughts, this weekend, that have been on my mind, because I think they represent good advice for artists and for people in general.

The first thought was that you shouldn’t be afraid of the future, you should be excited by it.  It represents fantastic possibilities and if you grab the opportunities to have a happy life that are presented to you, your future can be unimaginably better.  Too many people fear their future and regard it with dread and trepidation, as if only doom awaits.  If you have more days on Earth, be excited about what you might be able to do in those days.

The second thought was that too many people act out of fear and let fear run their lives and make their decisions for them.  Far better to act out of love at all times.  Whatever you do, whatever you decide, always do it with love.  Love eradicates fear.

I thought those were two powerful thoughts.  I hope you do too.

About tropicaltheartist

You can find out more about me here: https://michaeltopic.wordpress.com/. There aren’t many people that exist in that conjunction of art, design, science and engineering, but this is where I live. I am an artist, a musician, a designer, a creator, a scientist, a technologist, an innovator and an engineer and I have a genuine, deep passion for each field. Most importantly, I am able to see the connections and similarities between each field of intellectual endeavour and apply the lessons I learn in one discipline to my other disciplines. To me, they are all part of the same continuum of creativity. I write about what I know, through my blogs, in the hope that something I write will resonate with a reader and help them enjoy their own creative life more fully. I am, in summary, a highly creative individual, but with the ability to get things done efficiently. Not all of these skills are valued by the world at large, but I am who I am and this is me. The opinions stated here are my own and not necessarily the opinion or position of my employer.
