Art Is Everywhere, Art Is Everything

Art is art.

Art Is Everywhere, Art Is Everything
Mark Chadwick

"Your surroundings, home, personal care, pets, clothing and body are all reflections of how you see and express yourself." - Dr. Christiane Northrup

In a world of social media where the idea of beauty and perfection is laid so neatly, it can be considered a form of protest to truly be yourself. Unlike what you hear, you don't have to be as “out there” as any political activists voicing their opinion at the top of their lungs.

You don’t have to be an activist, actress or comedian in order to express any part of yourself. If you’re shy like me, you’re more subtle about your deepest fears, concerns and thoughts.

As the quote above states, there are simply things that speak for themselves.

Many people will tell you that any form of art is a great way to express yourself.

Question: what is art? Is it a painting? A poem? A naked body? Graffiti?

Art is subjective in nature and definition and that is the great thing about it.

If someone says you don't make art simply because their definition of art is different from yours, they don’t know what art is.

Knowing that art is a form of expression makes it easier to start making art, if you’re not making art already. When I say this, I mean if you are not getting rid of blockages and expressing your inner self. Take a second to reflect on your emotions, thoughts, feelings and experiences. You can do this by meditating, doing yoga or whatever your idea of grounding yourself is. This will clear your mind for the moment and let you create art with an open mind.

Once your mind is clear, you may approach any interests or passions you have with the intent of conveying your message. If you do not have any clear interests, you can start looking. Going online and searching community events or classes is a great, cheap way to search for a passion.

Once art is made public, there may be many people who feel understanding and as though they are not alone. This is a great way to spread good vibes, which typically makes people feel better. Remember that you do not need public admiration or recognition to make “real” art. Art is defined by the artist, and everyone can be an artist.

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
