This is what you shall do; Love the earth and sun and the animals, despise riches, give alms to every one that asks, stand up for the stupid and crazy, devote your income and labor to others, argue not concerning God, have patience and indulgence toward the people, take off your hat to nothing known or unknown or to any man or number of men, go freely with powerful uneducated persons and with the young and with the mothers of families, read these leaves in the open air every season of every year of your life, re-examine all you have been told at school or church or in any book, dismiss whatever insults your own soul, and your very flesh shall be a great poem and have the richest fluency not only in its words but in the silent lines of its lips and face and between the lashes of your eyes and in every motion and joint of your body.

Not I, nor anyone else can travel that road for you.
You must travel it by yourself.
It is not far. It is within reach.
Perhaps you have been on it since you were born, and did not know.
Perhaps it is everywhere—on water and land.

Do I contradict myself? Very well, then, I contradict myself; I am large—I contain multitudes.

― Walt Whitman

creative writing

Let your inspiration run wild

One of my many hobbies is writing. Every week I come up with new ideas, and although I do write a lot, I don’t share my creative writing on The Blog. From now on, that’s going to change. I’ve recently decided to open up my artistic side more, so there’s going to be things you haven’t seen from me before, deeper & authentic. This is also going to help me grow as an artist I hope, with your advices and positive feedback, I’ll do everything I can to better myself day by day.

To New Beginnings !i found my balanceSnapchat 👻 mads.kennedy

Remember a couple of days ago I talked to you guys about, how my blog was looking messy ? I just found out there was no structure, and that’s because of my new way of blogging. I’ve set myself free from any obligations, so I could have fun again sharing whatever I wanted, whenever I wanted ! & the fun part, that totally came back to me 🙂

I love blogging more than ever now… but, I’m missing out on a lot since I don’t even set some time aside anymore, for that purpose only. It’s became completely random, and that also shows in my posts. I don’t think it reflects the real me; yes I’m kinda crazy and there’s no actual control over things in my life, I’m wild & rebel at heart so I let things happen without restrictions.

But I’m also an artist, a photographer and an aspiring filmmaker… I write stories every week, I stop and record videos, I edit pictures like they’re my fave memories, I like to help out and make a difference if given the possibility, I love experimenting with beauty routines and chat about style, and music of course, is at the center of my life ! So many things that make the real me.

That’s exactly how I want you to be able to see me, and that can happen if I find a balance to show you so. I’m writing this to say, that I finally did it 😀 I sat back, and thought about it and came up with a no-pressure plan, that’s going to change the mess into more creative and inspired content. I’m so excited about this, at last I’m going to do exactly what my life and dreams are about, and you’ll be the awesome audience to my journey.

wow i’ve never thought about it like that before. and i never will. i’ve already forgotten what you said, goodbye forever

It was a bright and sunny day in Belgrade, and I decided to go for a walk on Knez Mihailova street. I was just all around enjoying the weather, and of course doing some window shopping 🙂
