If you want to be a painter, paint

If you want to be a painter, paint

If you want to be a writer, write

If you want to be a baker, bake

If you want to be an artist, create

Open your eyes and see the world right in front of you

There is no secret club or degree necessary

It is in the “doing”…in the letting go of expectation, where you open to your destiny

If you want to be a photographer, take pictures

If you want to be a traveler, travel

If you want peace, seek peaceful people and surround yourself with them

If you want to feel alive, then let go of what you are fighting against and open yourself to your passion

If you want to feel “more”, if something is missing, then just open your soul

Inhale slowly

Exhale slowly

Let the sun shine on your face and hear the ocean, the robin, the hum and buzz of life

There is no book you need to read

No one to impress

Just pause and become aware

It is that simple

If you want to be a painter, paint
