New Painting

I had an idea and threw it onto two canvases the other night.  While the words mean one thing to me personally, there are a million other meanings depending on what your own experiences.  Maybe you see something naughty, maybe you see something innocent.  Maybe it's about insecurity, or it could be about confidence.  Maybe it's about changing your hair color for your boyfriend or getting breast implants for your agency.  Maybe it's about your best friend, your boyfriend or your sister.

The Key to Success (personally and professionally).

What is the key to a life well lived?  What defines success both personally and professionally?  There are so many great answers to this one. Health? Education? Location? Family?  Luck?  Relentlessly being able to pursue our passion?

Let's talk about that family answer for a second, because now we are getting closer.  Family can be a great source of support, happiness and completion.  If you were born into a wealthy family, a smart family, a family of entrepreneurs or teachers, there are some obvious benefits to growing up and learning from your family.  But, not everyone relates to their family.  Not everyone has living family. While family can certainly play a role in your success in life, it can't be the answer for all.

The answer? It is relationships.  It's the friends, colleagues, mentors and people we choose to have in our life because they contribute meaning and value to it.  These quality relationships inspire, challenge and hold you accountable to be your best each day.  The people you choose to be around tell a visual story of who you are to the world, and also to your own self (subconciously).  We are a product of those we spend time with, wether we think we are or not.  

So why do so many of us hang onto friendships and relationships that don't align with who we are or want to be?  I don't have the answer to this, but I like to think it's because humans are compassionate creatures who need to have a defining moment to de-friend someone.  Someone has to do something really bad to us so that we finally see the harm they cause.  I think, many of us hang onto sub-par relationships far too often, and it's ok to do a little clean-up in the area of your life it matters most.

Be selective with your relationships.  Superglue yourself to the right ones and don't feel bad if you need to delete some old ones. Your life opens up when you cultivate meaningful relationships with like-minded people who you can aspire to be more like. Quality over quantity.
