At a convention, I got the chance to ask the actors Travis Aaron Wade and Mark Pellegrino for advice for immersing artists and creatives.
Travis first told me that being an actor means studying and understanding people and that an actor’s/artist’s path isn’t a clearly defined one but a constantly winding road that holds a lot of surprises. He moved on to saying that we all end up right where we belong at the right time, when we are ready to understand and appreciate the things in our lives. After all, everyone should work hard for their success and the most important thing to remember is to never give up, keep going and trust the process, because hard work and persistence will both eventually pay off.
Mark answered my question while I stood right next to him on stage. He told me that every artist has a responsibility to observe and to comment on what is happening in the world, that we have to believe in our individuality and our own voice. Having an opinion and being able to express that is fundamentally important. His advice really agreed with me and my view on art and culture as he stressed how important it is to go your own way while being your true self.
Overall, it was incredibly beautiful to get honest advice from the people I have admired and looked up to in a long time for what they have achieved in their professional and creative careers. Now I also look up to them as human beings for staying down to earth and kind.

It scares me how deeply concerned I am that I could ever lose myself, that I am awaiting the morning I wake up only to realize that my entire life and everything I ever did was one big mistake. It’s maybe part of growing up at this time, where we just don’t seem to know who we are and what we want.
We have no other option left than to embrace the freedom, the falling, the twisting and turning. It is so much better to go out and explore new grounds and risk failure than to stay locked inside our heads in fear. We just have to be confident and aware of the fact that we can always come back to where we started, because we are not driven by outside forces but guided by what’s within us – always. We might be lost but we will never lose ourselves, because we can’t lose who we are.
At the same time we have to loose ourselves and venture out, go out and dream, go out and explore, dance, jump, sleep and enjoy life – and do everything we are afraid to do.

I had never been into reading until the day I started my first novel by Hermann Hesse. That was probably the moment that not just changed my attitude towards books and literature but also towards life – for good, and I am glad there is no way back.
Ever since that day, I have been deeply in love with classic literature and writers, especially those who have the ability to touch your heart irrespective of your age, social background or the stage of life you are at. They all have something in common that reaches further than style and genre… They all have the unique ability to capture the human experience and what it means to be a person who deeply suffers and passionately indulges in life despite the fact that their work and the characters in it are not real.
There is something fascinating and even magical in every work of fiction, but the unique aspect about books is that they give us the opportunity to go back in time, to reread entire passages and portions of someone’s life. We are in control. We get to decide how slowly or fast the story unfolds and unlike real life we can just pause it and slow things down if they get too overwhelming. We can read the same book a dozen times and it will tell a different story every single time, because we are different and our experiences change us as long as we exist. We get to dive right into a different reality and step out for a moment whenever we want to. We are part of the story while we are also a quiet observer. At the same time written stories leave plenty of room for our imagination, because words are more abstract and therefore a lot less definite than pictures.
Those are the most important reasons I have decided to read whenever I can (at some point even I got sick of staring at my phone 24/7 or looking at people staring at theirs) and there are incredible moments and lessons to learn from everything in life – especially from books.
