Thought Patterns

Posted by AngelEowyn

Your thoughts construct patterns like scaffolding in your mind. You are really etching chemical patterns. In most cases, people get stuck in those patterns, just like grooves in a record, and they never get out of them.

If you desire to live your life in a creative way, as an artist, you have to not look back too much. You have to be willing to take whatever you’ve done and whoever you were and throw them away. To grow in a different way. To become something bigger and more expansive. The more the outside world tries to reinforce an image of you, the harder it is to continue to be you, which is why a lot of times, you have to say, “Bye, I have to go. I’m going crazy and I need to be getting out of here.” And then you go and hibernate somewhere and re-emerge later restored to yourself and your purpose.
