“If you ask me what I came to do in this world, I, an artist, will answer you: I am here to live out loud.”
Émile Zola

It’s been awhile since I’ve commented on a quote, but this one hit me right in the heart.  It can be easy to be intimidated and overwhelmed by people who think they know everything, but do not understand people who are different or the concept that different it not necessarily “bad.”  This is something I have been dealing with for the last two years and have to admit to at times giving in to fear.

When I sneeze I don’t try to keep in it, I just let it fly.  Recently after a sneeze a woman walked by me and said “bless you.”  She continued to say “That’s the way to sneeze loud and proud.”

Reading todays quote I realized that like some people try to hold in a sneeze I have been trying to hold in my own truth  out of fear.  So here we go.  Today is the day to commit to consciously living out loud, both in my art and my daily walk through life, just like I sneeze.

  2. Oh!!! I so agree with this idea and have been consciously working on it myself the past few months, so this post is especially significant for me too. Thank you!!
