Love

Wish I could see you

But you’re never seen

Wish I could touch you

But the answer is still the same

Wish I could smell you

But you’re hidden

Somewhere unknown

Maybe inside the heart

I don’t know

What I know is

You can only be felt

Because you’re invisible

To define you

Is a mystery

Just like life

But you’re still better

Because you’re eternal

And life is ephemeral

When you enter the heart of a man

You give birth to more invisible children

Compassion, Passion

Empathy, Honesty

Tolerance, Endurance

Courage and Hope

And because of you

Man is whole

For without you

Life is useless

There’s something that kicks my butt to work, to create enchanting stuff, and to become awesome. What’s it exactly? It’s my motto. My belief and my worldview.

When it comes to ideas, my motto is START and FINISH. When it comes to hardship, my motto is PATIENCE and PERSEVERANCE. When it comes to helping others, my motto is EMPATHY and GENEROSITY. When it comes to connection, my motto is INITIATE and ASK. When it comes to dealing with people, my motto is TOLERANCE and LISTENING.

So, what’s your motto? If you don’t have one, it’s time to create your own motto. Your motto will push you forward and help you to be more determined than ever.

Make Art Your Act

The phenomenal woman passed away this week. She inspired lives with her art. Ever since her demise, many people have been writing about her life, from quotes to books, and about her speeches, interviews, and many more.

Maybe I should follow the crowd and write mine, but why? We were taught not to follow the crowd and be different. But when the crowd is doing things that matter, then you should follow them and do it differently. And this is what I’m doing now. This is an acrostic of Maya Angelou.

M—Make
A—Art
Y—Your
A—Act, because
A—Art
N—Needs
G—Gratitude
E—Empathy
L—Love
O—Openness and
U—Understanding

She demonstrated all these and that’s what made her different. She used her art to make a difference. So, make art your act because art needs gratitude, empathy, love, openness, and understanding.
