I believe in tomorrows which sing....
....."je crois aux lendemains qui chantent".
....."je crois aux lendemains qui chantent"....I believe in tomorrows which sing... this is what I wrote in my journal this morning without knowing really why. Perhaps because, I had to pay some bills today and needed an extra dose of enthusiasm to do so ! But I prefer to think that I wrote this because for the first time in many many months I feel truly at peace with myself. I've stopped trying to give myself impossible goals to achieve at all costs. I've stopped telling myself, yes but.... I've stopped thinking I should limit myself to do just one thing. Because, let's face it, I don't believe we're meant to do only one thing in life. For a long time, I thought my happiness and balance depended mostly on my recognition as an artist or designer. Today, I know it's not entirely true. There's another side I forgot about. A few days ago, I remembered this scene from one of my favorite movies, YoYo Ma - Sarabande by Atom Egoyan. Yo Yo Ma, the famous cellist gives a masterclass and interrupts his student, the actress Lori Singer and tells her : "When you play....try to think about what you do to those who listen to you...think about that...". I've always loved this quote and perhaps even more today because it's something I would like to focus more this year....to pass on happiness through creativity....Do you believe in that ? I do.... :-)
