Create. Inspire. Invent. Build. This is how I’ve learned to cope with my life so far. I see the world as a blank canvas, just waiting for you to create something. Otherwise, you’re just existing. There are times, of course, when you can just appreciate the works of others, but don’t let it just stop there. Let it be the fuel to the fire, to give you the need to build upon those creations. A lot of times, I wouldn’t make something simply because I felt that it had already been done before. But when I realized the recipe for innovation is largely taking known ideas and combining them together to make something entirely new…that’s what keeps me afloat.
An important thing to keep in mind is to understand that everyone can’t create. The world needs balance, and it needs those that also are adept at destroying, at breaking. It is tough, because it can be demoralizing. But out of the wreckage and ashes, gives room for something else to shine. Sometimes, it’s important to know that you are the one that is made to destroy. That’s been the hardest thing I’ve had to cope with thus far. No one wants to be the bad guy, and yet, someone has to take that mantle, intentional or not. I can find solace in the fact that I may be paving the way for someone to make something amazing, beautiful, or any other motivational thing out of what I destroy.
For now, though, I’ll try my hand and mind at adding to the pool of those that have started the foundation of creating works and ideas. I hope to soon post those on here to follow.
