little update

wowsa. life lately has been sooo damn interesting. funny enough, i feel great and readier to tackle shits in life. some things needed improvement for sure. like work, for example. im lacking motivation and drive, but i determined to make it work. as in for my art, i feel like i get more precise direction now, and im going to start practically applying it in my life.  i need to be more confident and stop caring about what people say. i mean, i got nothing to lose for this. i have to push through and put a thick skin and do it. i feel like us creatives are cursed forever with self-doubts and fear of failure and imperfection. but i mean, how else can i go forward if i don't just push it? i recently write a caption on instagram, which i think will be the turning point of where is this art thing going.

" I finally come to a point where I realized that the things I create rely so much on my self-discovery journey. i think it's quite like that for every artist out there. we are continually figuring things out, but most importantly, we continuously grow. as we learn more about who we are, we transform from the inside out. we change.

changes, as exciting as it sounds, are scary. we face the unknown, and that can be daunting. but what if that is the only way for us to get to the other side? what if that is the only way we tap into our most potential? what if that is the only way for us to be the best version of ourselves? so I guess only by stepping into the unknown and embracing changes that we could be free and TRULY live. Bob Goff said it best, "embrace uncertainty. some of the most beautiful chapters in our lives won't have a title until much later." 

so now that i put this online,  I'm holding myself accountable. (goodluck sasa lol)

on the side note, i bought a new notebook for my journaling. i cant believe i finished a whole book in one month lol. i think journaling helps me to keep in track with what is in my head and also to remind myself of the things i have to do internally.

ok gotta go to bed now. update again next time. seeyaaaaaa x

📚✨ the subtle art of not giving a f*ck BY Mark Manson

Few things i picked from reading mr manson's book. These quotes speak to me so much and i want to share it with you guys!

🍁 Often the only difference between a problem being painful or being powerful is in the sense that we chose it and that we are responsible for it. we don't always control what happens to us. but we ALWAYS control how we interpret what happens to us, as well as how we RESPOND. 

🍁 Being wrong opens up to the possibilities of CHANGE. Being wrong brings the opportunity for GROWTH. 

🍁 This, in a nutshell, is what "self-improvement" is really about: prioritizing better VALUES, choosing better things to give a F about. 

🍁 Without conflict, there can be no trust. Conflict exists to show us who is there for us UNCONDITIONALLY and who is just there for the benefits. 

🍁 Healthy relationship is NOT about controlling one another's emotions, but rather about each partner supporting the other in their INDIVIDUAL GROWTH and in solving their own problems. it's not about giving a F about everything your partner gives a F about. it's about GIVING a F about your partner, REGARDLESS of the Fs he/she gives. that's unconditional love baby!

🍁 In perspective often happen at the tail end of our worst moment. It's only when we feel intense pain that we're willing to look at our values and question why they seem to be failing us. We need some sort of existential crisis to take an objective look at how we've been deriving means in our life and then consider changing course.

🍁 Life is about not knowing and then doing something anyway. All of life is like this. It never changes. Even when you're happy. Even when you're farting fairy dust. Even when you win the lottery and buy a small fleet of jet skis, you still won't know what the hell you're doing. Don't forget that. And don't ever be afraid of that.
