Not much really matters.
What matters is what you make matter; and you make what you don’t want to matter not to matter. Simple. So then why is life so complicated? Why do we make it so complicated? Well, exactly that. We make it complicated. We need to stop making life so complicated and complex and just live in these beautiful lives that we have boiling in our blood an tingling at the tips of our fingers.
So then; why don’t I do that? I need to start taking my own advice, I’ve concluded. Just turn the other cheek to those horrendous and less horrendous yet still horrendous issues in their own way – THINGS IN LIFE THAT JUST MAKE US UNHAPPY. And then when you continue to think about it we do need to know the unhappy to know the happy. Okay, sure, that’s totally true as well. But we need to always know that the happy, the tangible or less tangible things in life aren’t as far as we think, they’re simply blocked by the unhappy.
People complicate issues in life, definitely including myself. But my New Years Resolution Challenge (should I chose to accept it, and you better believe that I have!) is to let go of complications and find myself at the root of who I really am, what I really am and the good, the ugly, the beautiful, the colour things that come right alongside that.
I’m going to work on a painting for class tonight, and I’ll be posting pictures because I want to record life. Life is so worthy of recorded. Recording Addictions. What I’ve always tried to do.
“Tomorrow is the most important thing in life. Comes into us at midnight very clean. It’s perfect when it arrives and it puts itself in our hands. It hopes we’ve learned something from yesterday.”
