“show up, show up…”

show up, and the muse will, too

“…show up, and after a while the muse shows up, too.” – Isabel Allende

As artists, sometimes we find it hard to keep creating. We may be having a bad day, we may be tired from other responsibilities, or simply lack any sort of inspiration to create. Those periods usually lead to stagnation and overall lack of liveliness. It is imperative to remember that more often than not, emotion follows action. If we take a simple step towards our creative work, and then another one, pretty soon we will encounter our personal muse and the work we create will be fulfilling.

I believe it is the same for any kind of artist – be it in the classroom,or  in the kitchen, in an office room,or  in a library…

Any work worth pursuing can be considered art, and even though we may not always be inspired to do it, sometimes half of the job is just showing up.

Love always & Namaste,

you make my soul soar: re-visited in animArt

airplane flying

 

 

you make my soul soar.

overflown with wonder and your essence,

you make my soul soar,

high,

into the big skies above.

Happy Friday Eve, my dears!

 

I wanted to animate this particular notecard and re-visit it because I am so fond of planes and the idea of flying. I also wanted you to stop for a moment and think about a person in your life that has made your soul soar; has made you absolutely inspired and determined to go for that dream that you were hesitant about.

Was it one of your parents?

Was it a sibling?

A significant other?

A close and dear friend?

Perhaps it was a teacher  – a person with a most noble profession – that inspired you to no end to reach for the sky and know no limits to your dreams or potential.

Who’s the last person that made you feel infinite and daring to march on?

Maybe…maybe that person was yourself :).

 

Love always & Namaste,

times are hard for dreamers…

times are hard for dreamers

…and dreamers don’t give a damn.

Happy Monday! I hope this post finds you full of life and ready to take on this coming week.

This particular notecard was inspired by the memorable quote from the movie “Amelie“.

It also acts as a reminder that it is often tough for all the dreamers out there. But we mustn’t forget that difficulty and failure is part of the journey towards our dreams, towards happiness.

We must not give a damn about all the hardship we encounter . We must not give a damn about the people that will tell us that we can’t achieve our dreams.

We.

Must.

Keep.

Going.

So join me,

And together,

we’ll be unstoppable.

Love always & Namaste,

Volta

act more. over-think less.

take action; act more

act more.

over-analyze less.

It’s been a while.

I’ve got a million and one excuses for why I’ve been absent, but the truth is that I spent a lot of time over-thinking many things.

“Is this what I want?”

“Is this the right path?”

“What if there’s a better alternative?”

“It’s not good enough, so is it still worth doing?”

We often fall victims to thinking too much and doing less. Questioning has its place and time, but it can often stop us from doing.

Even if you have your doubts and fears – act.

Even if you are happy or sad – act.

Act more, plan less.

Tired of your current profession?

Seek other opportunities.

Thinking about starting a new venture?

Make the first step.

Have a novel you want to release to the world?

Write the first sentence.

Thank you for your precious attention. Look back on Thursday, to meet someone special. 🙂
