I think You are a Creative rebel… Let me explain…
I’m pretty sure the primary goal of a life is to find as much fulfilment as we possibly can.
That’s a big statement… but why not… And I’ve noticed a pattern, and that is, the way to maximise fulfilment is to courageously create the world we desire. In other words, as Aladdin might say, “set your genies free”.
Well, that’s the game I’m experimenting with and it seems to be working. ( You could say it’s a work in progress… ) Its been a huge, wonderful, struggle, and its taking lots of courage to break through all the reasons why I shouldn’t do what I really desire but I’m thinking that my path to living a successful life is to free my genies.
Over many years I daydreamed what I’d love to create, and one secret dream I kept, even from myself, was to become a professional artist. But over the past few years I’ve been breaking through and giving it a run for its money.
Its hasn’t been that easy!
And that was the crunch! I had to allow myself to feel unsafe, I had to stop following the herd and I had to turn my back on what I thought was expected of me. I had to ask myself “am I willing to Rebel against all these conditions that keep me small? How might it be to embrace my creative rebel ?”
And so the Creative Rebel was born.
So here’s where I’d love to hear from you. ( The best stuff always comes from you. )
I’ve noticed, for many of us, that sticking with what’s safe, what’s expected, and what we know, is the main path. But if I didn’t rebel against all of these I wouldn’t get to experience ( or share ) the real me. By holding back I was blocking my creativity and put the brakes on my authentic contribution, ( and I created lots of friction in my life… friction such as regret, guilt, drama, dislocation, and I was sensing something was missing or something’s lost. )
