Hey everyone!
I just split up with my husband. Today was the day I took a clean sweep and got rid of all the things that remained from our past. It is strange and sad to be aware of my current situation. But it is time to start a new life.

Why I tell you all this? Not to get compassion from you...

...but because shit happens.To everyone. What I wanna let you know is that if you have to go through a difficult situation...

don't stop remembering the good things which are worth living for. Start a clean sweep in YOUR life too!!!! The things that help me are...

1. My daughter. I love her dearly. She is the most important thing in my life!
2. My art. My passion to draw and my only income for us to survive.  
3. The knowledge that even if life is cruel and unfair sometimes it is up to me to change it to something good.

This little video touched my heart and you should have a look on it. Let's make the world a better place with small things we can change!

  • Listening to: the weird voice in my head...
  • Reading: Breaking Dawn
  • Watching: Nothing :(
  • Playing: with my shoes...
  • Eating: Muffins xD
  • Drinking: water

Hey Pixie ..i have been very busy this last few weeks but i just had to look into your gallery again because as much as there are many amazing artists here on dA you are the one artists i would love to buy prints from and while i was at it i found this journal ..and i just wanted to say that it will get better with time , something very similar happened to me about 2 years ago and that is what pushed me to become a photographer , use all the good and even the bad feelings to create art and let those feelings out and i asure you it will help :D

keep it up lady, let bad things go and cherish every thing that's good, no matter how small : ) i hope you and your daughter to be well, i'm sure you will~~ you got right spirit : ) but even on darker times, if you don't feel strong or if you feel sad, remember that you're at your best just as you are and there's no need to be more than that : )

muah~~

Wow .. Ich muss sagen , du beeindruckst mich total
Mal abgesehen davon, dass du wunderbar zeichnen kannst ist das eine echt gute Einstellung (okay, das klingt in dem Kontext echt blöd ><)
Das Video ist herzzereißend .. wirklich toll ><
Und es ist toll dass du auch in schlechteren Situationen so eine positive Einstellung bewahrst, dass hat nicht jeder Mensch und es ist absolut bewundernswert :)

I also have learned those three things recently, I have no regrets in life because the bad things helped me learn thing i never would have other wise.. and my daughter always helps me through anything (I did have a difficult year) and makes me work harder than ever. It really is hard to make enough off my art for us to live off from if you can do that thats amazing and even more inspiring. Im still pushing forward toward that someday Ill be there and hope the best of luck to you and your daughter too <3

I'm so sorry to hear about your split up and hope you're doing ok ... Wish your daughter would turn out to be as much as talented and inspired about art as you are... It must be really hard to depend on Art as the main source of income for you both .... Wish you the best; your story is as much inspiring as the video you posted and that video made kiinda cry ...
