THE CAMERON CREDO

My latest project:

The art is 16x24, so it’s all legible when printed up, but the smaller words can be tough to read online. So here’s what it says:

LIVE LIKE THIS

•  Have hope for new beginnings
•  Be friendly
•  Be open to every moment, no matter how ordinary
•  Speak slowly
•  Be what you pretend to be and achieve honor
•  Lessen the suffering of others
•  Explore and travel but don’t bypass yourself
•  Know more today than you did yesterday
•  Keep yourself clean and bright
•  Learn to trust with your eyes shut

•  Never touch the ground
•  Take risks
•  Every day is an opportunity to learn
•  Have confidence
•  Supply cheerful smiles
•  Get out of your comfort zone and encourage yourself to grow
•  Practice positive thinking
•  Don’t just stick your toes in the water, jump in and go under
•  Hydrate
•  Have fun

•  Do it now
•  Your happiness is your own to find
•  You and only you are responsible for every choice you make
•  Don’t just give up
•  Don’t waste a minute on the darkness and pity sitting in your mind
•  Work with integrity
•  Have compassion for others but especially for yourself
•  Do movie and sushi dates
•  You don’t have all the answers
•  Only boring people are bored

•  Dream, do
•  Think, believe
•  Be kind
•  No one is going to wait for you
•  Let all that you do be done in love
•  Do yoga
•  Make memory jars
•  You’ve got all you need to build your own road
•  Allow yourself to rest and heal without guilt
•  Don’t be afraid to live

•  Ruin is a gift, a vessel for transformation
•  Sweat
•  Forgo expectations and ditch judgements
•  Leave your ego at the door
•  The mind is everything
•  Don’t hate, meditate
•  Put your insecurities to bed
•  Tinker with stuff
•  Don’t over-analyze. Leave the pieces on the floor and move on
•  Hike

•  You are loved
•  Endure necessary suffering and leave the rest
•  Stop blaming others
•  Make changes not excuses
•  You’ll never be lonely if you like the person you’re alone with
•  Be curious
 Look up at the stars, not down at your feet
•  What others think of you is none of your business
•  There is always something you can do and succeed at
•  Cherish each experience

•  Fear is stupid . . . so are regrets
•  Let nothing steal you peace, not even the behaviors of others
•  Stand strong and fight on
•  Do the things that make your heart happy
•  Be proud of who you are and what you’ve accomplished
•  You can never go wrong with chocolate and peanut butter

The last one is my favorite, of course.

My friend and yoga teacher, Cameron, enlisted me to make these slices of advice that he'd compiled into a poster. I’m happy with how it ended up. It’s in the same style as my marriage tips poster, another piece with which I’m pleased.
