Each and every person puts off positive energy. Some more than others. I know I find much of my inspiration as an artist to create and share from other people. It doesn't matter if they're an artist or not. Through sharing ideas, be it in words, images or music, my friends shine in their own way, which in turn helps me guide myself along my own creative path. Sometimes you have to venture down paths alone and have faith in yourself that you can do it, that you're creative light is just as important as another. That it's OK to make mistakes and go down the wrong path every once and a while. It is there we sometimes learn valuable life lessons that help us in the future to not make these kinds of decisions again.
I've come to realize that it will always be easier to copy, criticize or destroy something, than it is to create something. And sometimes we don't know which is the best way to go. But I think that if we stay positive and understand that there are people out there that can help you get where you want to go, then it's a lot easier to follow light of your heart. The light that you've had your whole life. The light that helps you make your own decisions and gives you the strength to keep creating.
Note to all you out there who actually read --- normally I write these things and later delete them. I've always thought that pictures can have a higher meaning if the person looking at them can look a little deeper into the images through the words of the person that created it.
