Thoughtful Friday 6 – Just you

“To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else means to fight the hardest battle any human being can fight ;and never stop fighting”

e.e. cummings

Following up on this one, I’ve kept on thinking.

Trying to let go at least a little bit of the “should be”

… and trying to embrace just being myself.

In every way it may be.

Strangely enough, this is no easy endeavor !

So I’m slowly but surely walking my own path.

Because nobody is going to walk it for me.

Though the journey can be a bit hectic sometimes,

fraught with pitfalls some other times,

I’m pretty sure it is all worth the while … !

Have a beautiful week end !

    i LOVE the e.e. cummings quote. i think i will make a copy and put it above my workspace. i never have been one to follow the world’s rules as to what i should like/do/want/believe. but i have trouble with adhering to that in my artwork –when it’s not selling– to think that if i were making it in another way, it would.
    i love the thoughful friday posts! we need more of this beauty in the world.

    It is a wise quote to live by.. it is a battle and you need courage, but I’m sure it’s the only way to happiness… Good Luck!

    Amber, I know what you mean, but change nothing in your work – it’s unique and beautiful!

    Dear Amber,
    I love this quote too, it’s a good reminder.
    Not so easy to live by sometimes, but worthy things usually are of that kind.
    It is a difficult thing to put your art out there and sometimes face the fact that it would have been better received if you had made a few compromises. It may be frustrating but on the other hand, starting to compromise is somewhat turning art into simple consumption goods. Once again It is not an easy matter.
    I may be repeating myself here, but your work is beautiful !
