Frida Kahlo Quotes

When I think about creative people I think about Frida Kahlo.   Here are 22 Frida Kahlo quotes to inspire your creative soul:

  1. I used to think I was the strangest person in the world but then I thought there are so many people in the world, there must be someone just like me who feels bizarre and flawed in the same ways I do. I would imagine her, and imagine that she must be out there thinking of me too. Well, I hope that if you are out there and read this and know that, yes, it’s true I’m here, and I’m just as strange as you.
  2. I don’t paint dreams or nightmares, I paint my own reality.
  3. Nothing is worth more than laughter. It is strength to laugh and to abandon oneself, to be light. Tragedy is the most ridiculous thing
  4. I drank to drown my sorrows, but the damned things learned how to swim.
  5. Feet, what do I need you for when I have wings to fly.
  6. I paint myself because I am so often alone and because I am the subject I know best.
  7. I paint flowers so they will not die
  8. I paint my own reality. The only thing I know is that I paint because I need to, and I paint whatever passes through my head without any other consideration.
  9. Nothing is absolute. Everything changes, everything moves, everything revolves, everything flies and goes away.
  10. Pain, pleasure and death are no more than a process for existence. The revolutionary struggle in this process is a doorway open to intelligence.
  11. There is nothing more precious than laughter.
  12. I love you more than my own skin.
  13. At the end of the day, we can endure much more than we think we can.
  14. You deserve the best, the very best, because you are one of the few people in this lousy world who are honest to themselves, and that is the only thing that really counts.
  15. I am my own muse, I am the subject I know best. The subject I want to know better.
  16. I leave you my portrait so that you will have my presence all the days and nights that I am away from you.
  17. Only one mountain can know the core of another mountain.
  18. My paintings are well-painted, not nimbly but patiently.
  19. My painting contains in it the message of pain. I think that at least a few people are interested in it. It’s not revolutionary. Why keep wishing for it to be belligerent? I can’t.
  20. Painting completed my life. I lost three children and a series of other things that would have fulfilled my horrible life. My painting took the place of all of this. I think work is the best.
  21. No moon, sun, diamond, hands —
    fingertip, dot, ray, gauze, sea.
    pine green, pink glass, eye,
    mine, eraser, mud, mother, I am coming.
  22. There is nothing more precious than laughter.

Wordless Wednesday: New Beginnings

Welcome to Wordless Wednesday! This weeks topic is new beginnings.

I’ve always been a woman that juggles many projects at once, a multitasking mom.  However, during the Spring I take a step back and revaluate myself to ensure that I’m headed in the right direction.  I make sure that I’m taking care of my job and my family, but most important my well being.   I review my entrepreneurial goals to ensure I am not wasting my time on projects that will not help me grow.   I reconnect with friends to ensure we don’t lose touch.    Similar to a garden I prune the dead branches and pluck out the weeds so that all that remains is a beautiful blossom. 

 

Question:  When was the last time you reevaluated yourself so that all that remained is a beautiful blossom?

Wordless Wednesday: Tranquil Vacation Spaces

Welcome to Wordless Wednesday link up! This week’s topic is Tranquil Vacation Spaces.   

My favorite Tranquil space is Glen Ivy Hot Springs Spas.  It’s the perfect place to relax, detox and rejuvenate.  We travel to Glen Ivy a couple times of year for a  girls day out.  It’s a perfect getaway day trip to unwind.  I also take an annual mother, daughters and granddaughter day out where we pamper my mom.
