Does anyone truly know what to do in this world?
Really all anyone “knows” is what has been taught to them by parents/guardians or teachers.
Where did they learn what to teach you?
Most likely the same way, But not one of the people who taught the next ever had a manual.
The way Humans Evolve is based purely on what ideas come to them.
SO how does anyone have confidence in what they do?
Anything anyone has done the idea has come to them.
How do they attribute themselves with pride for an idea that came from…WHO KNOWS????
Life was never meant to be figured out or understood the very world around us changes forces of nature, gravity, molecules, planets.
How can you believe anything to be a fact if the fact itself can experience change?
Remember this if a seemingly confident person tells you not to try,
Or anyone who has “Power” over you,
Because the very thing they are so Confident in are Diffident in its actuality.
Just a little something I whipped up in Photoshop…
Sometimes you just have to let go of what you think is right and do what you can. Today I made a list of all the things I wanted to accomplish in my five hour work day. Before I could even tackle the second task, my printer went down. I spent about an hour total trying to get it working again and talking to our IT guy. Needless to say this put quite a damper on my ‘To Do’ list. I improvised on a couple of things and in the end I made sure everything was done that needed to be. For some reason the universe felt the need to alter my plans according to its will. That’s just how it is sometimes and all we can do is accept it and move on. I find that when I am struggling to make things go my way according to what my ego thinks is ‘right’ is when I am the least creative. It is only when I am going with the flow that things feel right and my creativity blossoms.
I was thinking the other day about how I criticize my work. No matter how ‘good’ I think my work is I can always find room for improvement. What makes design and art ‘good’ depends on the opinion of the viewer and opinions are based on an enumerable number of variables. With this in mind can any design or work of art ever be complete or perfect? Would there not always be something that could be altered to make it better in someone else’s view? I think the only perfect design is found in nature, that is, all of nature. Why else would we struggle to mirror its beauty in our creations? This reminds me of a quote by Ambrose Bierce, “There is nothing new under the sun but there are lots of old things we don’t know.” I have come to realize from this line of thought that it is not the design that is important, but the intention behind it. Just because someone has ‘bad’ intentions that they want to manifest through their design work, does not mean that they cannot create wonderful design. However, I would rather create hideous design with the best of intentions that to have it any other way.
