Use your ANDs!

No IFs or BUTs, just ANDs

Instant crush…very inspirational and positive ad, not only empowering women, but supportive of inner differences and contradictions of every human being…Contradictions which make us complexe and beautiful and unique. Which could make us strong and creative and happy if we integrate and assume them. Noticed all these ANDs? Apply them without moderation 🙂

The subject of complementarity is also essential for creation – as well as process of producing as way of living:

Creativity is the power to connect the seemingly unconnected – William Plomer.

To create something/ to innovate, you take several different notions and transform and mix them in a very personal and novel way.

Don’t throw any of yourself away. Don’t worry about a grand scheme or unified vision for your work…One day’you’ll look back and it will all make sense” – Austin Kleon, Steal like an artist

To live your creative life, you have to embrace different facets of your personality. Austin Kleon advices you not to choose between your different passions, but let them talk to each other, producing a marvellous and unexpected synergy.

Impose ta chance, serre ton bonheur et va vers ton risque. A te regarder, ils s’habitueront – René Char, Les Matinaux

You could hear that you are too creative to succeed at school, too different to fit into professional life. You could hear that you’re too implied in your profesionnal activity to be a real artist. If you are different somehow, up to you to capitalize on it. Do not expect from others to understand and to appreciate it; value it yourself, show them!

What AND are you?
