Secondly, there is a lovely music maker from the Netherlands that I frequently listen to (am listening to right now actually) called eevee. She makes beats that are truly beautiful to me (which can be listened to here) and as a tagline to my current favourite of hers, the beat-tape called ‘Seeds’ which I absolutely adore, she spoke openly about how difficult it was for her after her father passed away, trying to find positivity in her life.
Both of these women moved me a lot, and I found their choice to give words to their experiences to be very brave.
I wanted to follow suit, though it is a bit scary to talk openly. I still wanted to.
Sometimes I think life’s greatest lessons have all been reduced to cheesy little sound-bites, destined to lose their true meaning through overuse.
I have realised lately there is truth behind these cheese-filled sayings, and if a little effort is put into actually thinking about their meaning instead of immediately dismissing them, a lot of value can be found behind the words.
For instance, as a writer, I think the following super boring and cheesy saying is actually pretty damn important:
‘It’s the journey. Not the destination.’
To 'Read More' press the part where it says 'Read More'. Duh.
