Advice for my daughters.....
(This is not about art or business. Instead I chose to write to my daughters who will be out of school and independent sooner than later. Surprisingly, this is how I run my business. It has worked for me and I hope it will work for my kids.)
Be you. Don't be someone else.
Stand firm for what you believe. Protect your beliefs but change them when they need to be changed for the right reasons.
Follow your passion. Money is fleeting and always will be. Your passion will sustain you in ways money never can.
Laugh. alot. Inappropriately even.... It is such a healing thing to do and it keeps you young.
Count every teeny tiny blessing, especially on the hard days.
Learn. Always take the time to learn. It does not have to happen in a school setting and most of the big lessons don't happen there.
Create what you love. No matter what that is, create what you love.
Give to others because it is the right thing to do, not because you will get something out of it or in return.
Live in the moment. It won't come again. They won't all be good or fun but they all teach us something.
Most importantly, love yourself for who you are completely. If you love yourself that much, loving others comes much easier.
