Sadness Is A Blessing?

October 24, 2013 — Leave a comment

I remember taking a quiz during my senior year of high school with my class. It was a personality test that could be used to help me with college. My results were that I was an Introvert and a Melancholic. This wasn’t a surprise considering I used to fall asleep to Fiona Apple‘s first cd during middle school. And when it was time to read the lyrics of a song that you loved in my Junior year of high school, I recited  Looking In by Mariah Carey to a bunch of blank stares. I think I believed the idea that artists were troubled souls and that is where they got their inspiration.

I think that we can pull inspiration from our joy and happiness as well as artists. I don’t believe we have to stay in our melancholia to create anymore. Do you?
