Welcome to my blog!

Hello my name is: Icicle Audacity. All I see are ghxsts. I'm the misguided stride for self improvement - a sadistic, futuristic machine. A hollow cold emitted through vibrant lights, it’s a warm as wool winter but I’ve got a chill I can’t shake. This is what I am & I think I’m fine in my own misguidance. My bones are frozen, my marrow has turned to ice - my body is just a body, a corpse without a head. I'm just a vessel & my brain has long been dead.

"That's really the only thing that matters to me, is that I make art for a living. And if I make art for a living... I win."

Let the revolution begin

I often hear people talk about their lives, their failures and their accomplishments. I’ve noticed that most people tend to dwell on the failures, the things that went wrong, rather than the accomplishments, the things that went right. I am no saint; I have at times done the same thing. It’s part of the world we live in, to be judged for how we’ve succeeded and failed, but that doesn’t mean it’s the right way to live.

It’s okay to look at your mistakes, because that’s how you learn, but if you look only at the mistakes, then you aren’t learning anything, you are simply repeating the same things over and over. You start living a life that is completely negative, and if you continue to live that way, you become a negative, a mistake, and you don’t realize what you’ve done until you hit rock bottom and don’t see a clear way to save yourself.

By the same token, only looking at your accomplishments leaves you always thirsting for more, you are never satisfied, nothing is good enough, and in the end, you face the possibility of being just as empty, just as mistaken, as those who only think in the negative. Your life has also ceased to have meaning, if not to you, then to everyone around you. Life is a succession of moments; all tied together, all based on the choices you have made. Failure to see these moments, to enjoy them, to live them, takes away their meaning, and yours. Live each failure, each accomplishment, take it for what it is and move on to the next moment, stop dwelling on past failures and accomplishments, because it’s how you deal with these things that really makes you who you are.

Live each day for its self, and for you. Find the peace and beauty that surrounds you and revel in it. Feel the rhythm of the world around you, and become part of it. Understand your place in life, and do the best you can to fulfill that place. We each do have a place, even though it can sometimes take a lifetime to realize what that place is.

We are all here, we are all alive, some are happy, some are sad, but we are all here, together. Every day holds the potential to be the greatest day ever, simply because we are alive. So many miss this little thing, they feel that “living” means accomplishments, being better than everyone else, rather than just being alive, and being the best that they themselves can be. Personally, I live for the moments, because they make life worth it. My life has meaning because it does, not because of anything, or things, that I’ve done. My life has meaning in spite of the things I have and haven’t done. The past and the present are the days of my life where things are constantly changing, constantly rearranging. I change the world simply because I am in it, everyone does, and because of that, everyone’s life has meaning, everything we do changes the world. So rather than ponder what could have been, and what might be constantly, live your life, and live it out loud.
