I’m not practical.

Confession time.
I envy my best friend ( in a good way) for her practical approach to life.

I can’t be practical , no matter how much I try.

And now I know why.
I’ve always battled with this, now I feel at home.
I am an artist, a creative soul.
I think deep, I imagine wild , I feel every emotion right from the very core of my soul.
Every thing I love to do, for me is to work with my all, passionately , deeply & intoxicatingly being aware I’m drowning into it in the moment.
When I’m writing, I’m lost. When I’m painting, I’m lost, in this place that’s mesmerizing, there’s just me, and calm and peace, serenity, compassion.
I’m sensitive to the heart, I’m impulsive.
I get bored easily , so I’m fidgity, my mind boggles almost everything around, observing, wondering, wandering, seeing shapes in the clouds or art in rustic walls, words in the gushing waters.
I can sit with you, and talk not one word, if I’m comfortable around you. And that silence I can enjoy. I don’t talk much when I’m thinking or putting a masterpiece together in my mind.
I had been a people’s pleasing person all my life , because I couldn’t say “no”. Now, I can. I am a people inspiring person now. I love making one person smile everyday, may it be my words, may it be my prayers, may it be my very impulsive crazy madness.
I’m bubbly & cheerful & childlike when I’m in a good mood, but when I’m not, I’m quiet & spaced out. Yes, I over think, a day dreamer, a night thinker, sometimes I plan, sometimes I go with my gut. And my instincts are always always always damn fckng right.

Being practical is going with that smart way of doing things in life, it involves lesser risk. But me? I love risks , I get drawn to complicated hazards for no reason. I take paths I choose, not practical, not always smart, but somehow soulful..

(I wrote this to remind me on the days I wish I be more practical, why I can’t be what I’m not and why I should be happy for what I am. Creative souls are never practical, they are messy & crazy & feel everything in it’s greatest details. )

Life is imperfect art.

Oh what a beautiful chaos!
How can the greatest perfect potter of all create something as imperfectly real as me ?
I’m amazed. I love the abstract art He created.
Hah! I’m learning to love me like how He see’s me.
Imperfect, cracked, tarnished, gracefully varnished, coloured, discolored, painted , remoulded, burnt, and plastered & torn apart and brought together anew.
How brilliant is this ?
Life is art at work.

My life..my art.

Such a beautiful principle to use for normal day to day life, there’s alot that goes into a failed art , sometimes even the same amount of paints and materials that a masterpiece would need, but probably there’s a technique or detail or a small stroke gone wrong somewhere, that makes it feel incomplete.
While, when it comes to art , I believe even the most lousy art can be transformed and recreated into something breathtaking. And there’s really no failure to see there. A failure merely is a challenge to take a higher risk and work it out into something unpredictably perfect or almost perfect. Every ruin is so beautiful, why should that be only in an archaeological or art perspective?
Look at you, your life, look around, there’s tons of things gone wrong, tons of disappointments, tons of failures, tons of stagnant life situations, tons of pessimistic vibes….
Why stay stuck & gloomy ? When you have the ability to transform this into something no one can fathom to reason , go and just do it. Get your hands dirty, mind into an overdrive of possibilities, thoughts synced on optimism and eyes solely focused on the task at hand and the visison in your head. Let your heart guide you to places imperfect seeking some repair and recreation.
Your life is your art. There is simply no setback that you cannot transform into something surreal. Define your existence with your capabilities that you have to discover in your lifetime of living. Live today hoping and thinking of all the endless possibilities of what you can do, what you want to do and what makes you burn and feel alive.
Choose that fire. Let it burn.
Passion can take you to places you have only dreamt about, passion can create your universe.
It’s not so easily found by all, but those who have found their’s should cherish it- what a wonderful magnificent gift they hold!
Life is this art that you should be infinitely passionate about to live happily and humbly.
