In today’s world it seems like we are so overly judgmental. It’s easier to be a critic than a creative. We have been so crippled by criticism that we cant stand to start something that we aren’t absolutely perfect at. I’m not a writer or grammarian. Nor would I consider myself a professional blogger. But I’m doing this and so many other things that I do not foresee myself ever being perfect at.
Quit telling yourself no.
Thats what these critical folks are out here for. As my dad would say; No is the worst thing they can say. Big freaking deal!! Stop placing these imaginary limitations on your gifts. Distance yourself from people who have mastered the reasons why something can’t happen. I can’t quite remember where I heard it, but someone once said that ‘people have a strange trust in their demons’… evaluate and release.
“Argue for your limitations and you get to keep them.” -Elizabeth Gilbert-
Is the concept of originality actually false? Creativity is easily about the reconstruction of existing things. Our life experiences are unique therefore what we create shall follow the same path. Let’s not be bound by specificities. Let’s be brave!
My goal is to wake up fulfilled and sit in my joy. I give myself permission to live in the present and sharpen my gifts. The most important factor about those that live in their potential is not the amount of potential, but the amount of permission you give yourself to use it. My job is to create what wants to be created.
If not you, then who? If its possible to do, then its possible for you to do it too!
