"The role of the artist is exactly the same as the role of the lover. If I love you, I have to make you conscious of the things you don’t see." #JamesBaldwin

There's nothing wrong with being nervous...everyone has their times. There's nothing wrong with being afraid, we've all been there. But there is something wrong with you depriving the world of your TRUTH.
Speak it, no how much your voice shakes...humanity will be better for it. You have more #Power than you can imagine.

The Comfort Zone is a beautiful place, but nothing grows there except for frustration from doing the same thing over and over and going nowhere.

Comfort is a death sentence. Keep moving forward my friends.

I used to sell artwork just to buy paint that I couldn't afford. So when I tell you that too much will never be enough, know that I mean that shxt with every bone in my body.

#StayHungry my friends

Many thanks to my #paint connect that shall forever remain nameless.

Behind every great man is a great woman who makes it all possible. What I do is the easy part, supporting all of the crazy shxt that I do is the real work.

"I LOVE too hard"

Too many people think this is a weakness, when it is the exact opposite. It takes immense courage to be able to love within a world that gives you so many reasons not to. To love is to have great power and with great power, comes even greater responsibility.

So next time someone tells you that you love way too hard, smile and say "Thank You"

Stay strong my friends. Hold that LOVE tight. We need every bit we can get.

The uninspired love to uninspire. Those who can't see ahead think you're the crazy one for being able to do so. Don't partake in their insecurities, just set the world on fire and they'll eventually see the light.

Every shift in the right direction matters. No fight is too small. It's the small contributions from many people that create big change. 100 pennies will always be worth a dollar. Pay attention to the pennies, that's where the forgotten value is.

If it doesn't make #CHANGE it doesn't make sense.
Comment below your guess on how many pennies I used and the closest answer gets FREE #LOVE hat πŸ‘€

"Use your he(ART) to love somebody, and if your he(ART) is BIG enough, use your he(ART) to love everybody." I overdose on love for those who don't hear it as much as they need to. So if you need some, take a little off my page, there's enough for everyone
