How to Learn to Discover Yourself



Imagine waking up one morning and then realizing that you are sitting in your car while being all dressed up, showered, and drinking a hot cup of coffee. You may have no recollection of your conscious memory, about how any of this may have happened with you. We have evolved so many in the present era that we run into our day's complex routine procedures. It’s like that our mind is on autopilot mode, and our unconscious processes are so much faster, reliable, and more subtle than our conscious efforts, to comprehend and understand the world around us. As things revolve around us, we need to know much about ourselves to get through life as we know it.

Life is not a Ride but a Journey

Life is not a ride where you can just jump on the driver’s seat and start your journey, deciding on where to go and where you need to be. It is a journey of unexpected turns and twists. You may never know where you might end up. Learning to discover yourself is essential because you would know who you want to be and what efforts you need to achieve by exploring yourself.


Importance of Discovering and Exploring Yourself

When you truly learn to discover and explore yourself, you know about your passion, what you want to achieve in your life, what career choices to make, what you are good at, and what skills you have to accomplish your goals. It can also help you understand the people you are comfortable with to spend your time. You can tell them about the things which you prefer talking about and give information about yourself. Knowing yourself can help you drive your motivation levels about new things in life and be comfortable. You can incorporate new information or let it go. You cannot change without knowing yourself, and you cannot live in a world of change without changing yourself for the better. 


Taking on Life’s Challenges by Discovering Yourself

Life will throw all kinds of troubles and difficulties at you, but you need to maintain your resolve and focus. To know yourself can gain you better benefits in life. It can lead to the results which you want as you can make the choices which suit you best. You just need to make a bit of effort to know yourself better. You cannot guarantee that you are smart, strong, or good, no matter how much you peel off your personality layers. One thing is for sure. The more you know about yourself, the more you can explore the things you are good at, the more opportunities you can gain in life and make the best of them. Try to learn different parts of your personality and explore what you like to do that works out well. Therefore, you don’t have to know the stuff and put it on autopilot in your unconscious. 

Try to learn more about yourself by reading my book ‘For my Legacy’ by Carole Feuerman. I knew from a young age that I wanted to be an artist. My Grandfather helped me realize my identity and my  passion, and by learning my skills as an artist, I became a well-known and got where I am today. In my book, I try to motivate people on how they can know about themselves, just as I did, and by utilizing their passion and skills.

THE WORLD THAT WAS, THE WORLD THAT IS

My sculpture, Brooke with Beach Ball

We are living at a time that life seems surreal, and I ask myself if I’m imaging this. For the first three months of the pandemic, I sheltered in place at home. Seemingly overnight, the entire fabric of my daily life had been turned upside down. And yet—between trying to order groceries online, keeping up with the news, and by refreshing the New York Times homepage, it was important that I kept myself optimistic, energized, and entertained (and, perhaps, a little distracted).

That didn’t work out too well. After a few days I was bored, so I bought a 500-piece puzzle and watched a lot of TV. I couldn’t focus enough to read or work from my computer. Then I got to thinking…no one is at my art studio in Bushwick, so I don’t think it would hurt if I drove there, parked my car inside, and started to create again, and that’s exactly what I did. I immediately had more energy, and started to feel alive again.

My eyes were open once again, but now I saw things I’d never seen before. A pandemic worldwide, looting and breaking windows, violence against protestors,  violence against the police, and the threat of American Democracy from a corrupt president and his followers from the far right, white supremacists, and the unthinkable now corrupt Republican Senate.

Art is me, and I am art. I get physically sick when I don’t work. Bringing people together, inspiring, soothing and sharing: these are the powers of art, the importance of which has been made emphatically obvious during the Covid-19 pandemic.

In January, I had a lot of deadlines, scheduled shows, and no time. Now I have time and no shows.  How does an artist keep going when the gallery system that supports her seems on the verge of temporary collapse?  Every curator, gallery director, and member of the art world seems to be home. I think the only benefit of this is that it’s time for a reset, a reprieve of the expectations that the art market puts on artists to produce, and to have and to share everything we make.  I’m fine making work in my own bubble because I make art for myself, regardless of whether I show it or not.

Art Miami, 2019

The organized art world has responded beautifully to the lock-down and social-distancing protocols that are keeping people away from physical spaces. Art fairs like Art Basel and Art Dubai have gone online, and numerous galleries all over the world have responded to this new reality with online viewing rooms. The pandemic has closed museums and cancelled concerts, plunging many cultural institutions into uncertainty and immediate financial loss while also threatening a long-term effect on the arts. 

At the Met, Pandemic Era

At the Met, Pandemic Era

Ticket sales at museums account for a smaller percentage of total income than they do at opera houses or dance companies, yet already the carnage is mounting. The Metropolitan Museum of Art, with a princely endowment of $3.6 billion, has a projected loss of $100 million; institutions with smaller reserves are drawing down fast, and may never reopen. In a matter of days, the world of contemporary art went from a reverberate global network to a ghost town, sheltering in place as the coronavirus endangered our cities and our livelihoods. Like every other sector, art is having to go digital.

Video conferencing is the new norm

For artists, the show must go on, and Zoom is their venue.
