Imagination Creates Reality
Vincent Willem van Gogh, a painter among the most famous and influential figures in the history of Western art. Despite being considered a madman and a failure in his lifetime, his legacy continues to inspire people. Van Gogh exists in the public imagination as the quintessential misunderstood genius.
The artist "where discourses on madness and creativity converge", Van Gogh sees things differently, and with that he created his very own magic.
Everybody sees the world differently, everyone has their own imagination, and everyone has a mind of their own, yet some of us are too afraid to speak out our thoughts – too afraid to be rejected by society.
We let ourselves be consumed with the current trend and tend to forget how to “be myself”. We’re so blinded by how we should dress, how we should act and how we should talk.
“One of the greatest regret in life is being what others would want you to be, rather than being yourself.” – Shannon L. Alder
Everybody has their own opinion on “beauty”. Everyone has their own personalities, and that is what makes each and every one, uniquely beautiful. We slowly build ourselves by searching for the things we love. Happiness comes when we consume our life with what we enjoy and passionate about. Believe in your imagination to create the reality you have wanted.
“The great successful men of the world have used their imagination. They think ahead and create their mental picture in all its detail, filling in here, adding a little there, altering this a bit and that a bit, but steadily building – steadily building.” –Robert Collier
We shouldn’t be afraid of what others think of; instead we should be afraid of the things we could have had, but too afraid to reach out.
