I️ feel a change coming in my life. A calm before the storm.
How can I️ be ready, yet feel not feel ready at the same time?
Fear, creativity, anxiety, challenge, confidence, workaholicism, boldness are all bundled up, fighting each other for dominance.
I’m not trying to be poetic here, just trying to describe the song being repeated in my mind.
Resolve is bubbling up to the surface, gaining speed, getting louder.
“Start living and acting like whoever the hell you want to be.”
Love painting, but hate accounting? Then why are you an accountant? Safe doesn’t mean ALIVE. “When given a choice, take both.” — Peter Diamandis
Last year, I️ gave away all of my time so that I️ could survive. To eat, pay rent, and live, which didn’t give me much time to create and make things for myself. I️ continued to try, but its hard to focus on creativity when you worry about money. But after I️ got my work in better shape, I️ still wasn’t creating, not enough anyway. Even though most of my time was taken up, I️ started a daily blogging challenge. I️ squeezed It out with the little free time I️ had at night. This is day 114. But it’s not enough, I️ want to do more, and do it better.
I️ want to be all that I️ can be, no exceptions.
I️ want to create: to sing, speak, write, design, act, connect, dance, instruct, paint, move, build and live a life true to my creative self.
That’s who I️ am. That’s how I️ resolve to live.
Perhaps you want the same.
If so, know this:
You don’t have to be ready to start, you just have to be TRUE.
Be the truest person in the room.
