All throughout my life I've sought out who/what I should be. I've looked up to and strived to emulate many strong but very different people and ideals which had resulted in wide and eclectic range of interests and outlooks on life and exactly what we're supposed to be doing here on the third rock. Recently I've come to the realization that my life's not been unlike Mr. Brainwash's art show in Exit Through the Gift Shop in that he's taken other people's art, slightly altered it and slapped his name on it. Over the past couple of years my art has finally become genuine and authentically mine. I'm finally living my own life with my own identity which has resulted in a secure, happy and confident individual.
This transition wasn't even apparent to me at first however upon becoming enlightened, it's certainly escalated quite rapidly. Previously I've identified with the hippy lifestyle. I've romanticized of living off grid, growing all of my own foods and eliminating synthetics and chemicals completely. While I no longer see myself living on a commune one day, growing/raising my own food, I remain vigilant regarding hormones and preservatives in my diet. I always will prefer homeopathic alternatives to prescription drugs. I firmly believe that humanity could be shooting ourselves in the foot in this regard.
