I have often felt lost creatively. I have been silent for many years, repressing many desires to create, resulting in repressed thoughts, feelings, and ideas because of feeling lost. All this repression lead to a form of depression. I felt my voice did not need to heard, that it was all meaningless, a waste of time. Suffering through, wanting to create, but feeling worthless and idea-less, so I would not, could be make myself.
Then, through meetings of different people, I began to see this need to create is not just a thing, it is a part of who I am and who am I to repress it? I started to try, to sit still and observe the world around me, let it inspire me, bring new ideas to light. I started placing my feelings into these ideas and ideas for pieces that truly say something started forming. Needless to say I was excited, I could create again, and this time with a message. But finding time to do this is not easy. I must plan, and that is something that does not come easy to me. I also want to share my journey, let my awkward path inspire someone, bring hope in a darkened world. I need accountability, a reason to keep struggling, to keep moving forward, to keep on my journey. I started this blog to help me find my way, to give me something to do so I was not just sitting around. So now I have a vision for it, to keep me motivated, to inspire and to ignite.
Join me on my journey and let’s inspire, encourage and bring hope to one another!
