“The rest of the world was black and white, but we were screaming in color.” -Taylor Swift
There is no way to be good at anything creative, or feel confident in the work you do if, internally, you are dissatisfied and uninspired. This is a lesson I learned long ago, but one that is also easy to forget when you’re trapped in a certain frame of mind, stuck behind a computer screen, or being hindered in some way…held back from releasing the ideas that are buried within you.
Life is about trying new things, figuring out whether or not they work for you, and then doing more of what does. I think that is the the actual road to happiness. And it might be a fucking long one, but at least you can know you are going somewhere great. It’s a road that should be paved with multicolored bricks and technicolored two-piece ensembles…friends, family, and sometimes solitude. Every person’s journey will be different, but we will cross paths and share wonderful experiences along the way. Some experiences will force an unexpected backtrack, and others will lead to a sunnier, happier tomorrow. Just keep on walking.
