Does love really has to hurt? According to artist David Catá it obviously does. The Spanish artist uses his body as a canvas, writing an autobiographical diary. In his ongoing series ‘A Flor De Piel’, he embroiders portraits of people who have influenced or marked his life – family, friends, teachers, lovers, partners – sewn into the palm of his hand.
‘Their lives have been interwoven with mine to build my history’, Catá explains. ‘Every moment lived stays in the memory to finally be forgotten. Somehow, this fact is painful, since there are only material things and traces that people leave behind’. The woven flesh work establishes a symbiosis between union, separation, pain and love, a performatic and symbolic action of loss and preserves the memories through memorial, corporal and videographic footprints.

Yes you are my sunlight
You are my last breath of air
I would try to hold it
I would try to keep the moment
Like a photograph of the sunset
Like a little kid with a bug net
Like a dying man, I swear

We put so much weight on ourselves to be happy. To find happiness. We obsess, stress and burden ourselves about what it really feels like to be happy. Minds racing over and over about the choices we make and how they will affect our future. When in reality, we should believe that we can find happiness anywhere, no matter what right or wrong decision we make.

Society pressures us to find happiness, furthermore defining what happiness is. Painting pictures in our head about how we are supposed to feel and look forward to. Putting that joyous momentous feeling in a bubble that so many of us find so hard to reach. 

We are encouraged to be who we want to be and find what makes US happy. But, it’s not a race. It’s not a competition to be the most happy and satisfied in life. Happiness and satisfaction are different for every individual on this earth. We are fed inspirational quotes about the seven virtues, but those have even been romanticized.

Value inspiration in which you can find meaning. Don’t force-feed yourself what doesn’t help. Allow process. Allow your heart, mind and body take you where you need to be happy.

It doesn’t matter what you want 10 years from now, just focus on the present. The choices you make aren’t life threatening (hopefully). Take each step by stride and know that no matter what you chose, or where your path takes you, there will be happiness along the way. You can only be patient and hope to baby Jesus that you will earn the happiness you see for yourself.
