You Cannot Take Anything Too Seriously.

This is maybe one of the most important things I have ever learned (the hard way haha). People get so wrapped up in expectations and they plan things out in their mind exactly the way they want them to go. Then when they don't go that way, it's like an emotional trainwreck. For the past few years, I have learned to let things flow. Of course you cannot help but imagine things going a certain way. Then if they take a different course, just know it is for a reason. Always take time to laugh, breathe, and experiment.

This has been especially important for me this past weekend while I am working my buns off to get a million things accomplished. I found a random bunch of beads that my kitten pulled off of some dream catchers I had hanging up. I needed a place to store them while I do not have time to re-attach at the moment, and I put them in an empty blush container. The way they looked reflecting in the mirror was randomly and surprisingly so beautiful. So, I decided to take a quick break from what I was working on. I placed a large mirror I snitched from the garbage (don't judge), put it in the sunlight, and spilled some more beads across it. After some tweaking in Lightroom, these happy and colorful photos were the result:

Take breaks and play! Not from just artwork, but from life in general! If everyone did this, could you imagine how much of a happier place the world would be? Let's lead by example :)
