this concept is a new one for me. i’ve heard it in many forms. it’s about the process not the goal. practice daily. don’t tie my sense of self-worth to each thing i make. but none of that really hit home before now.
i still find myself placing SUCH WORTH on each transaction.
it’s paralyzing. with such a mindset, everything matters. every step is an inch forward in some grand procession where no mistakes are allowed and destiny’s condescending gaze sits regally perched on a pedestal. and what’s the trade-off you ask…..?
a creative rep.
- getting better at the thing that drew me in in the first place.
- benefitting from another lesson on the tail end of a “failure.”
- nullifying resistance’s song. that tune on loop that whispers: i’m not good enough. it’s not meant to be. maybe head in a different direction.
any rhetoric other than DO THIS THING I LOVE WITH ATTENTION AND FOCUS EVERYDAY, is bullshit.
WHEN I STACK THOSE CREATIVE REPS, I WILL WAKE UP IN MOTION. I WILL BE THE VERY THING I FOCUSED ON. a creator. because i created.
today i am the man who makes things. tomorrow as well. and proud or not, i must get my creative rep in because THAT is the goal. to be IN PROCESS.
the goal is to be the person that listens to my heart, intuition, feedback, experiences…and then, creates. that’s all i was ever trying to do. missing creative reps gets in the way of that goal. it invites distraction, frayed attention, and loss of direction. get those creative reps in.
love you universe
