I’m the kind of person who considers street art the most beautiful kind of art there is; It’s a true, raw expression of passion and creativity. It’s art without boundaries and limitations. Even though the above piece by Kelsey Montague isn’t the most provocative, socially critical piece, she encourages people to contemplate an important question; What lifts you? What inspires you to get up in the morning? To pursue the day?
As human beings, I think it’s essential for us to have something to strive for. Dreams and goals that makes us look at life from a positive perspective; looking forward to tomorrow. To what comes next. What’s great about this, is that there is no unambiguous answer; no right or wrongs. It’s solely a matter of personal preferences. Some people may draw inspiration and happiness from their everyday routines; their workout or a good cup of coffee. Others may find inspiration from a character they admire; maybe a compassionate, empathic friend? A hard worker? A celebrity?
Personally, I draw inspiration from my own goals. I’m a dreamer out of dimensions, and consequently, I have goals to match; Goals that are a couple of years ahead. Right know, my primary goal is to finish my bachelor’s degree and then maybe an MBA. Simultaneously, I wish to start my career by pursuing some of the opportunities in this city. Luckily, it looks like my schedule for the spring semester will give me some time to intern; I can’t wait! I love to work, especially in the fantastic industry of fashion.
So why am I writing this? Well, there are two reasons. Firstly, It’s because I believe everyone should have something that lifts them. Inspires them to be the best they can be. Secondly, it’s because I’m currently studying for two exams, and I’m exhausted. However, having my goals in the back of my mind, I’m inspired to do my best.
I’m not a big fan of quotes, on the contrary I often find them mushy and apathetic. Nevertheless, I must admit, I liked the quote used in the context of this campaign,“Your wings already exist, all you have to do is fly”
So, what lifts you?
