Words from the Artist
A few words by the artist John Tudisca as you experience "Return to Nature."
Thank you for being a part of this experience. I am hopeful that everybody found something in my messages that they can apply to their lives to help someone they may know that is suffering in silence. Negative thinking can truly affect the mind in a toxic manner in which you don’t see yourself for who others see you as or better yet, your image of yourself may even be falsified or exaggerated. Life on the internet isn’t everything as it seems but it sure is influential. We see filtered images & only what people choose to share. We feel certain ways about our bodies, bullying ourselves into thinking we aren’t beautiful & worse, continuing to scroll through the negativity. You never know what someone is going through. You don’t know what they have experienced. Everybody is different.
Watch your words & how you speak.
Read the energy around you.
If something’s off, speak on it.
Do not sit in that energy, it will swallow you. Think better & rise above it.
You can do anything if you believe it to be so. I encourage everybody to do what they love & make the most of their lives. Experience all that you can & share your stories with friends & loved ones. Be open.
Dream freely, live freely & love freely.
Be you because you’re unlike anyone else.
