Hello lychees, I cannot even greet you properly because I am so excited. Happy freaking September.
It feels so good to finally be posting again after my long break from the Internet world. Whilst I was off I had a life detox and was was exploring new ways to expand the reach of asklychee. Lots happening behind the scene and I am very excited to bring fresh new context on the blog so I hope I have your attention!
My theme for the blog has always been about finding my journey to happiness and I would like to continue with that theme because my journey has not yet come to a finish.
Today’s post is basically pieces of advice I would give to my younger self and hence would also want to share with you;
My advice would be to work as hard as possible, and then, when you think you’re done, to work just a little bit harder. To know that if it feels
‘right’ it may actually be completely wrong, and that if it feels ‘wrong’ it may be completely right. There’s no governing principle to any of this except that strange instinct and feeling within yourself that you simply have to learn to trust, but which is always unreliably changing, To create something for people who have not been born yet. To pay attention to how it actually feels to be alive, to the lies you tell yourself and others. Not to overreach – but also not to get too comfortable with your own work. To avoid giving in to either self-doubt or self-confidence, depending on your leaning, and especially to resist giving over your opinion of yourself to others – which means not to seek fame or recognition, which can restrain rather than open your possibility for artistic development. With all this in mind, not to expect anything and to be grateful for any true, non – exploitative opportunity that presents itself, however modest. And to understand that being able to say ‘I don’t know what to do with my life’ is an incredible privilege that 99 percent of the rest of the world will never enjoy.
Hope this somewhat helps you in your daily lives and remember it is never too late to start over.
It feels so good being back.Xx
