Everyone talks about going out in the world to find themselves. We have created this idea that the only way to discover yourself is by going out into the world and travel. I believe that everyone has the whole concept completely backwards. I strongly agree with the idea of becoming more culturally aware and educating yourself more about the world we live in. I also believe that this world can offer us so much, it just depends on whether or not we recognize this or not and how we decide to use it. I see the world in a way I design my pieces. Events, emotions, places, and even people inspire my work everyday. Everyday we are affected by things, and our reactions to these things mold the person you are. Technically we aren’t going out into the world to find ourselves, we are actually going out there to create ourselves. The beauty about being human is that we are allowed to make mistakes. We are so afraid and wrapped up in so many emotions that we suffocate in it all and we just crumble. People put up walls and even avoid things that they are most afraid of. This may make me seem that I have my whole life together. The truth is that I defintely DO NOT! Haha, I’m on the same roller coaster as you and the person I’m sitting next to. But knowing that you don’t have all the answers in your life, only opens up your mind to many other things. Things that can potentially create a better you. I’ve only been in college for three months but I can’t help but wonder about other people and about their lives. Everyone I know is on a different path. These paths are molding them into the person they will eventually be. Sure the masterpiece won’t be complete until maybe years after college but I believe the journey is the best part. I guess what I’m saying is that you shouldn’t expect to find your true self by just going out in the world. You are not going to accidentally run into yourself. Answers and things you want don’t just pop into your life. You have to work for it, like you have to work to figure out your purpose and self. I created this quote to be my phone case cover for a reason. I have it everyday to remind myself that I’m on this crazy roller coaster ride called life and that my mission is to create myself. I hoping by the end of this ride, no matter how long it takes, I find a me I will be proud of and love. I’m positive I’ll love her though as you all will love the person you become.
Here are some other quotes that I have designed this year. As you can see, nature and quotes inspire me the most. I believe that everyone should have a quote that inspires them and that guides them throughout their day.
