What's a quote or lyric that inspires/motivates you? #MentalHealth #Anxiety #Depression #ChronicIllness

I always love this one!

There is freedom waiting for you,
On the breezes of the sky,
And you ask, "What if I fall?"
Oh, but my darling,
What if you fly?

- Erin Hanson

Let's teach our sons and daughters how to be human above all,
As opposed to lessons depicting what a "real" man or woman entails,
Let's not confine them to rigid boxes,
That when they don't fit their assigned quarters,
the damage caused to them may be irreparable,
Boxes make splinters and stakes, you know.

Let's teach them to be brave and scared
To fail and succeed,
To handle disappointment and channel anger
To be strong, to help, to persevere, to love, to be kind, to FEEL.

Let's not stick labels of attributes on the sides of boxes...
Tailor made for only but a few:

"Check your genitals, get in the box
Memorize your characteristics
Keep fingers and toes inside the gender mould at all times
Lest the world should snip them off"

Don't let this be their instruction

Let's teach them to be humans by renewing our humanity,
We created a macabre production line, mincing out marred and mutilated souls...
Instead let's create a revolutionary new line,
It will produce characters that do not want to kill themselves or eachother,
The new line will not adhere to "one size fits all" labels,
A fallacy, designed to eradicate diversity
Instead the characters will be encouraged to step out,
We should not be confined to live in boxes,
For the sooner we'll be buried in them!


Taking Time For Art #taketwo

I take time out to draw while listening to calming music. It helps me relax and lowers my stress levels. I don't feel my symptoms when I draw.
