Solitude. The artistic process unfolds in the lonely hours. That's when work happens. The hard part is to control this creative energy and discipline yourself to fulfill it. This work only happens alone. When you sit there, alone and working, life and emotions pop up and the challenging part is to not to run away from it. Artistic solitude is a decision to turn and face these feelings, to sit with them for long periods of time.
Existentialism is the belief that life has no meaning other than what people bring to it. All people thus have the freedom to choose any action, as well as the responsibility of accepting the consequences of that action. It is precisely this freedom and responsibility that causes existential angst. Moral people, existentialists argue, can have no other sensible response to the terrible burdens of their choices.
Resilience is that ineffable quality that allows some people to be knocked down by life and come back stronger than ever. Rather than letting failure overcome them and drain their resolve, they find a way to rise from the ashes. Psychologists have identified some of the factors that make someone resilient, among them a positive attitude, optimism the ability to regulate emotions, and the ability to see failure as a form of helpful feedback. Even after misfortune, resilient people are blessed with such an outlook that they are able to change course and soldier on.
"You're not your job. You're not how much money you have in the bank. You're not the car you drive. You're not the contents of your wallet. You're not your fucking khakis. You're the all-singing, all-dancing crap of the world."
