    Losing people you love

    Losing people you love

    We never lose love. We never lose people. We carry it all with us and build our character from soft beautiful feelings and memories until we’re so completely built up of poetry and love that it’s all shining through us, making everyone around us a little gentler and kinder too. That thought makes me smile.
    And maybe you have a role model in your life, that you know personally or only from a distance. You admire his or her guts, achievement, strengths and wisdom. No matter if this person is still around or not, you can take the feelings, the inspiration, the motivation that person gave you and forever carry it with you. Make his energy a part of you and radiate it to everyone you meet. Eventually, you will become such a role model for someone else, too, and isn’t it a beautiful thought to know that you will share that light and energy forward. Making this world a little brighter and more active.

    You can say goodbye to people without losing the beauty they gave you.

    Are you pleasing or serving people? A personal lesson.

    Are you pleasing or serving people? A personal lesson.

    You can work on yourself as a human being so much and you can grow yourself and you can work on your music and create a beautiful song with the most amazing video and artwork and you hold this and you think this is the most beautiful thing you’ve ever created. and you put it out and there will be someone writing to you saying, “this changed my life”, and at the same time there will be another person saying, “this is so bad, you should stop doing music”. you can not escape this. this is going to happen, it happens to me all the time.
    the negativity very often takes over. if you get one positive message and one negative, you’re gonna think about the negative, sadly.
    the art is learning to speak to the ones that get you and bypass the ones that don’t...

    Highs and lows and the comfort in knowing they’re there.

    Highs and lows and the comfort in knowing they’re there.

    I think I’ve had the best 3 weeks in a very very long time. I thought progress would be feeling more stable, having a consistent state of mind that does not sway depending on the weather but I’m having such low lows and peaking highs nowadays and I’m kind of enjoying it. The day feels like the darkest end or it’s completely magical. Anyway, I’m enjoying it and I write a lot and sing a lot and hurt a lot and love a lot and I’ve met a lot of new people those weeks who don’t look at me like I’m someone lonely and sad and I think that makes all the difference.
