Ralph Weilding I am a 27 year experienced mind fast approaching the next years cycle of life living in magnificent Tulsa Oklahoma finding my place in life & society. My entire life I have been a creative dreamer with an optimistic & positive mindset working towards a goal that’s still defining itself. Don’t get me wrong we all have bad moments and good moments, but we must remember that they are just moments. You are the creator of your life good or bad… its up to you to decide which one to water! Art has always been one of my greatest escapes in life, no matter where you are or what you have its within you. Tulsa is where I found my environment to grow and thrive as my inner creative self. I was working an industrial job with exaggerated hours going along with the what society said is the “ right Path”. I was on the verge of accepting it until a trip and an opportunity re-ignited my creative passion. from that point on my world grew and more colors appeared… and many moments of happiness came forth. Over the past 4 cycles of the Sun I have dived deeper into the creative world & my mind… finding happiness within. Instead of accepting life for what it was… allowing it to bloom into what it could… has become to me! I bet you never even knew there was a universe inside of you. I give thanks to the Universe for the opportunities and changes we have made my life and others. I hope you have found your own self and happiness in this crazy, beautiful thing we call life!
