That is the question I ask, right before I click the “publish” button. I see other people writing great blogs. They talk about their passions, their political affiliations, observatons on life and I am amazed at the many ways there are to express the same thing. I am working on my niche.
I call myself a modern day Renaissance woman because I do many things. I paint, I create 3d paper sculptures using watercolor pencils, watercolor paper, glycee, decoupage sealant; I write songs promoting love, understanding, acceptance, respect; I play the guitar; I am a life coach; public speaker and a Reiki and EFT practitioner. I am also a videographer and TV producer. I used to get confused on what I should be pursuing, then I realized why do I have to focus on one thing if they all sing to me and I have passion for all of these things.
So my blog is a way of letting the world know that yes, a person can share all of these things and use them separately or together. For people in their 20’s who think they have to be one thing-you don’t, you can be whatever your heart tells you to act on. If I recognized that who knows what would have shown up in my life.
I thought I had to be a secretary or administrative assistant or manager. That sounded noble and respectible. I shut off my creative side. I felt empty. I felt fragmented. I didn’t know what role I should fit into. And If I wanted to make money at these things-forget it. I was young, I didn’t realize it was ok to claim my creative side and could have found ways to integrate all my talents.
Now that I am older, I embrace my art. I find that the more I create, the better my problem solving skills have developed. I listen to my intuition more and get the answers I ask for with clarity and confidence. At 53, I feel happy, whole and complete. This is an affirmation that I don’t just align myself with, I embody these words. So back the the question-is there anyone out there. If you are and this speaks to you, let me know. Share your thoughts. I want to read it.
