Dear All Artists And Creatives

It's not uncommon for the artist or creator to have a trajectory that has its peaks and troughs, rises and falls, victories and losses. Like the tide we are ever changing and never find ourselves stagnant in one position for too long. As a highly creative person I know how freaky it can be losing your current spark of creativity and being left to wonder if it will ever return. At these times doubt can kick in and it can end up really thrashing you around and leaving you worse off.

The past week I've been on a high, I had some realisations and made peace with certain aspects of myself that I felt were holding me back but today, and I don't know whether it's because of the dream I had or numerous conversations (probably assisted by both), I woke with the muddy swirling clouds of doubt in my head.

Doubt tends to make an unwelcome guest appearance for me when I pay a little too much attention to what others are saying and how they're choosing to be. I start to ask questions that end up belittling my sense of self and the choices I am making for my own life. I don't carry a victim mentality and don't really want to go there with this blog in particular but, being a creative in such a left brain world so far has not shown itself to be very kind. 

I've bumped into many 'logic' thinkers that don't mind telling you that your true creative essence is not enough to give you everything you need. An education with a high paying respectful job that contributes to society no matter how much it makes you feel imprisoned is the way to go. We'll I'm here to say fuck that.

If you know what you want, who you are and what you need to thrive, I believe you have everything within you to have the success you desire. As much as this is a reminder for whoever out there is reading and needs this boost, I am writing this for myself right here, right now too.

This is all a part of being human, accept it then go and make mindbogglingly good art.

Love, Delilah

The Start Of The Rest Of My Life

Welcome to my first ever post on my new blog The Resplendent Lioness!I have been working on many aspects of this blog for over the past week but to finally sit down and write my first is a very lovely feeling.
Only just recently have I recognised that as long as I can write I am deeply satisfied. I still crave intensely many MANY wonders, writing just gives my experience a sense of purpose that other loves just don't. The best way I can describe it is as if  I am the whole universe, writing is the sun, and my many other joys are planets and stars. All are important and make up the whole universe, this is key. Stars and new planets can be discovered but there is only one sun.  The complete source of warmth, bringing light to every part of me.
My desires to venture into the blogging world have only come about recently and suddenly but I believe in divine timing and this could not have entered my life at a more excellent time. I asked for a summer romance and I got handed a blog. My oh…

18 Life Changing Lessons I Learnt In 2018

Here we are again, the end of a book and this time it so happens to be the novel that was 2018. A lot occurred in the past 12 chapters and 365 pages and for all I find peace with and am grateful.
Moments have been filled with pleasure, some with agony, some with sadness, elation, shock, glee, gloom, mild insanity, only to name a few otherwise we'll be here for the whole of 2019 if I try to list all the adjectives I've felt recently. I actually really enjoy watching the pendulum swing every which way asking you ever so politely with a kick up the butt to keep and never stop progressing. So to sum it up my year was filled with a lot of butt kicking.
I used to HATE the thought of new years eve and even birthdays so much that I'd get emotionally and physically distressed about them. It meant that the clock kept ticking and chapters kept ending, a concept my little eleven year old self didn't want to have to accept. Ever. It's only been this year that I've embraced th…

The 10 Albums That Transcended In 2018

Albums and EPs that I listened to non-stop in 2018 and you should listen to too!My favourite 10 releases in 2018 that features artists you will immediately fall in love with.

I spend a decent amount of my time admiring the artistic expression of music. It is something that I hold very close and very, very dear to my heart. Along with writing, music brings the most indescribable and monumental feelings of pure elation and raw electricity.
My favourite genre of music is the kind that leaves me feeling like I just saw through space and time in the matter of minutes and now I know every secret to the universe... so basically I'll go for anything that makes me feel like I'm high.

2018 was a year of some spectacular breakthroughs in music from new artists entering the scene or familiar faces re-inventing what they have to offer. Now, more then ever you're bound to find someone somewhere on the globe making something to cater to your very specific likes. I can't guarantee you…
