Give yourself permission to be whatever it is that you want to be. No one is waiting to anoint you as a professional writer, musician, poet, designer or blogger.
Giving yourself permission will you give you confidence. It will give you a chance to be an artist, someone who changes how we think, what we feel and how we do. You don’t need credentials to be an artist. You don’t need to sell a platinum album to be a musician. Just start being one and start creating art to change the hearts and minds of people.
Reader’s first reaction: I am not an artist. I can’t paint a picture.
You are an artist when you spend emotional labor to deliver a project in a generous way.
Blogger: I made this blog for you. Here. Read this. I hope it helps you find what you are looking for.
Be generous with your gift. No need to sell it for money (it’s too valuable). When we sell our gift for money, it is no longer a gift but a commodity and when it turns into a commodity it is no longer art.
Be an artist. Paint the picture of the future you want then go there.
