15 Georgia O'Keeffe Quotes Everyone Needs To Hear
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Georgia_O%27Keeffe

Hello everyone, I want to introduce you all to my favorite artist. Georgia O'Keeffe is a female painter who lived during the 1900's and continuously challenged the norms of society during her time. She dared to live her life by her own rules and to live with adventure. As my favorite artist she was always one to speak her mind and stand firm in her beliefs. She helped to inspire others to reach for their dreams, no matter how terrifying they are, to be themselves and to not apologize for it. She is, Georgia O'Keeffe.

1. "I've been absolutely terrified every moment of my life and I've never let it keep me from doing a single thing I wanted to do."

2. "Whether you succeed or not is irrelevant, there is no such thing. Making your unknown known is the important thing."

3. "It's not enough to be nice in life. You have got to have nerve."

4. "I wish people were all trees and I think I could enjoy them then."

5. "I think it's so foolish for people to want to be happy. Happy is so momentary - you're happy for an instant then you start thinking again. Interest is the most important thing in life; happiness is temporary, but interest is continuous."

6. "Where I was born and where and how I have lived in unimportant. It is what I have done with where I have been that should be of interest."

7. "I have already settled it for myself so flattery and criticism go down the same drain and I am quite free."

8. "Nothing is less real than realism. Details are confusing. It is only by selection, by elimination, by emphasis, that we can get at the real meaning of things."

9. "I do not like the idea of happiness - it is too momentary - I would say that I was always busy and interested in something - interest has more meaning to me than happiness."

10. "Take time to look."

11. "You get whatever accomplishment you are willing to declare."

12. "Someone else's vision will never be as good as your own vision of yourself. Live and die with it 'cause in the end it's all you have. Lose it and you lose yourself and everything else. i should have listened to myself."

13. "I am frightened all the time. But I never let it stop me. Never!"

14. "I don't see why we ever think of what other think of what we do - no matter who they are. Isn't it enough to just express yourself?"

15. "I know now that most people are so closely concerned with themselves that they are not aware of their own individuality, I can see myself, and it has helped me to say what I want to say in paint."

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

Is a month at home too much to handle?

12938

If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
