Met the artist of this print at the Urban Craft Uprising this weekend. She's lovely, and her work is amazing!
when we make a change, it's so easy to interpret our unsettledness as unhappiness, and our unhappiness as a result of having made the wrong decision. our mental and emotional states fluctuate madly when we make big changes in our lives, and somedays we could tight-rope across manhattan, and other days we are too weary to clean our teeth, this is normal. this is natural. this is change. - jeanette winterson
I read a psychology study once that said participants who held a pencil in their teeth were happier than those who held one in between their lips. The difference? Holding a pen with your lips forms a frown. Holding one with your teeth forces a smile. :-)
My philosophy -since the selfishness people are capable of can be overwhelming stick to this and you'll never be at their level...
