Hey Everyone! Happy Tuesday!!
Today I would like to promote our first “behind the scenes” video on our really really side short-film before our big project!
It’s all about self-love and self-harm. Tav wanted to share what her painting meant when she was painting this in the short!

The Ghuman Project
There is always something we strive for, hope for, and wish for the better.
Either on to ourselves or for others; just a little piece of light.
What is it that you hold on to? Something you would like there to be more of?
LOVE MORE is written on my face.
There needs to be more love in my world and yours. It’s not the first time you heard someone say, love conquers all! Because it really does!
What kind of hope is written on your face? Spread that hope loud!!
There will be a time where you will feel like you have it all.
The feeling that everything is finally perfect.
The feeling that everything you’ve always wanted is finally here.
Where nothing can disappoint you. Nothing can disturb you. And nothing can destroy you.
Yet, you still fricken feel scared. Defeated.
You let one honest voice out and somehow, suddenly, the vibe changes.
The stars are now aligned differently.
Your gut is turning awkwardly.
And with one voiced opinion, somehow you lose it all.
With one action, somehow everything disappears.
With one feeling, somehow everyone is shifted.
How do you get that all back again?
Maybe we want to move so fast that your world isn’t ready for it.
Maybe we want to fill something quickly that you end up filling it with the wrong thing.
Maybe we want to love so hard that you end up getting hurt by a person you’d expect to love you.
We may think we have it all, but usually it’s only the beginning.
Either a beginning to an old end or an end to a new beginning.
I don’t have it all, but even half a baby step towards a tiny thing, is always growth to the better.
Even taking steps backwards is not the worst thing ever.
No matter how bad it hurts.
Even when you feel like your world is falling apart so fast, never let anyone define your worth.
