“A great piece of advice. -What is one thing you would share as “the best advice ever” ? “
Generally this question might seem daunting. There’s seemingly SO much good advice to give, yes? Like, for instance suggesting, rather heavy handedly to people in the Arts, that they absolutely hands-down have to read: Art & Fear: Observations on the Perils (and Rewards) of Artmaking and perhaps even re-read it from time to time throughout their artistic lives.
Or perhaps you might give the advice to: Travel! Get off your comfortable-zone, lazy- excuse making arse and SEE THE PLANET YOU LIVE ON! After all, we as Human Beings are only ‘here’ for a short while, in the whole scheme of things.
Or, QUIT YOUR FRIGGIN’ SOUL-SUCKING DAY JOB! That’s a good one. People dredge up many excuses why they can’t take the ‘leap’ to Freedom. Constantly building a debt cage for themselves and/or using that as a reason to stay static, stay stagnant.
None of the above is my advice today.
I am here to suggest you go, right now and – Tell the Humans in your life, tell everyone- that you love them! That you care, that you’re there for them.
I have certainly dealt with a shit ton of loss in my life this far and it is easy to forget or take for granted, the people in your life that mean so much. Because maybe you think they’re gonna be there in an hour, in 24 hours, or next week or month… well, in this lovely ephemeral existence THAT is not always the case.
Ultimately, what matters most? Is it the love we gave? Our experiences? We certainly die, and we certainly cannot take any of our heaped up material possessions with us. IF our energy moves on, leaves the body that will rot, or be cremated, then for goodness sake, for just the sake of what that could mean- be kind, be nice and GO CALL YOUR MOM! 🙂 or your Dad, or your brother or sister or your friend, or cousin that maybe you’ve been arguing with or not talking to for what-ever reason. Move forward. Forgive. Don’t carry nasty shit. Today is the new moon! Put massive, extreme positive intentions out there! That’s my advice. Yay!!!
