I am finally giving myself permission to explore and express my creativity.
I spent most of my life pouring my energy externally, trying to please others, trying to fit in. It allowed for little to no time to explore my own true passions and calling. .
When I did have time I would be extremely hard on myself with negative thoughts, telling myself I am not good enough, deprived of talent, I would compare myself to others and think I would never be as good as them so why even start ? .
Well, we are all full of talents and gifts, we just need to give ourselves the time to find them out. I started making it a priority to spend more of my energy internally, journaling, meditating, painting and exploring what makes me feel alive and in alignment with who I am. I also learnt that practice is key, so if you don't allow yourself to practice how can you become good at anything. .
We all have to start somewhere. So here is me, starting to explore watercolor painting. Maybe you like it maybe you don't, but I am doing this for me and I really like it. .
