Inspiring Words: The World Is Yours

Image source

This week’s inspiring words come from an artist I have grown fond of. Wes Lang is a Brooklyn-based artist whose work has a haunting dark side, but yet still makes you smile somehow. His controversial work consists of collages of paintings and illustrations, his style is hugely influenced by the employment he had at a tattoo parlor after high school, which is evident in every single piece of his work.

The other day I came across this piece by him with the words:

“An unhurried life, believe in yourself, treat others with kindness, the power of positive thinking, you can’t stop me, the way, the way, the way. The world is yours, best of luck”

~ Wes Lang

It’s quite simple but yet it stuck with me for the rest of the day. Don’t hurry through life, be true to yourself and others, stay positive, don’t let others stop you. The ending left me staring into space for a while. “The world is yours, best of luck.”
