To my fellow #creatives of all types, I hope this post finds you in good spirits. If nobody has reached out to you and told you, I'm saying, I am proud of you and happy for you. Continue to stick to your passion(s) and allow your dream(s) to manifest no matter what.
It seems like the mundane aspects of life will never change but there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Our #passions are our life line. They are the very essence of who we are and set us apart. I'm writing this specifically to you to let you know that I am thinking of you personally and want to remind you that you are not alone on this journey.
Each of our stories is unique and connects to someone we have no idea the magnitude of #impact that it makes. So no matter where we are on our walk we all have a role to play and someone to #influence alone the way.
I'm personally making a promise to myself to only entertain healthy relationships.
I have a huge heart as most of us do and I find it often puts me in a bind because I want to help everyone. I'm always the one that is left with the short end of the stick; overlooked and under appreciated.
A lot of this has to do with how I"m valuing myself. How I'm projecting myself worth into the world. I agree with self that something needs to change... and it's going to take some time for me to figure our what that is and how to implement that change.
One new thing I'm doing that helps evaluate my emotional state every day is this chart called "A Year in Color" 2019.
I found it on #Pinterest. It reminds me of when we were in Kindergarten and your teacher would say if you had a green, yellow or red kind of day. This chart is similar with 5 ratings and with it... at the end of each day I ask myself what type of day I had. Then I think on why did I deem today said rating?
- Did I have a great day because I pursued my passions?
- Was it because I was completely prepared for the day?
- Or did the day go the complete opposite of what I expected and I still feel like I handled it well.
- Or did something out of pocket occur and I just fell apart.
In the end as the days and weeks go by I'll eventually begin to see "in color" overall my life is great and I'm usually having difficult days due to "x" or "y". Then I can hone in on how to better handle those weak spots in my life (character/personality/boundaries etc).
To close I want to share as a creative I encourage others to step out and be yourself at all times. Stay private but branch our and be you.
There is someone out there that is #inspired by you.
So if you got this message personally from me know that you are thought of highly and I do my best to make my rounds.
Do not be discouraged and please do not isolate yourself. Reach out and express yourself so it doesn't stay locked up inside. Push and find ways to channel your hardships into your craft.
