Important notes to self

Thinking about doing something makes it appear far more difficult than actually doing it. So just get down and dirty with whatever you feel like doing.

You often learn very valuable lessons from life and forget them over time. Revision is very very important!! 

Every morning you need to make plans to do something spectacular and magical.

Pray everyday just to send thanks for what you have and love to all those who matter to you.

When you go to bed you should feel that you have done all you wanted to that day and close your eyes with satisfaction and a smile.

Smile like there is love overflowing in your heart and oozing out of your face. Giving a smile always gets you one in return.


Never ignore your gut feeling. It is never wrong! 

Stop trying to be what you were in the past even if it was amazing.

When you feel bad about something get it out of your system and move-on. This is the only way to remain sane.

Re-discover and re-invent yourself often. You will always be surprised at how good it feels.

Do things that bring smile to others but don’t be too serious about it! 😉

And hell have fun! Dance, sing, make crazy faces, make many friends, run, jog and eat heartily.

Be crazy
Be crazy

Talk to your mom and remind her how awesome she is!

Remind your dad of his super powers as often as you can. Parents, they seem to forget just like you do! 🙂

All is OK in this world until you start imagining problems in your head. So don’t!

All OK!
All OK!

Making a to-do list helps keep focus on what needs to be done.

Now stop writing this post and get back to your SOP! Grad school won’t wait for your blog post! 😀

Hard confession

Determination to crack one tough nut a day is what I need! 😊

Danny Gregory

I’ve spent a lot of time over the years convincing people that making art is just as natural as breathing. And as easy. 

But maybe I’ve been avoiding the hard truth. That making art can be hard. It can be hard keeping to a habit. Hard pushing past blocks. Hard mastering new media. Hard facing your mistakes. Hard being your own cheerleader. Hard seeing clearly. And hard putting yourself out there.

I’d convinced myself that if I make it seem like the barrier to entry is just a bead curtain that I will be doing people a favor. But when I make it seem easy and you find it hard, you might worry that you are exceptionally untalented or lazy or dumb. Which is far from true. 

The fact is that sometimes making art can be very demanding. 

And that’s okay.

Just because something is hard doesn’t mean it’s scary…
