Whoo-whee, that little break was hard but good! In case you hadn't noticed, I took a little break from blogging because I thought I needed a little rest and some time to immerse myself completely and wholly into my master's program. I wanted to see how I'd conform without creating much art. Could I do it?
I've spent my entire life defining myself as a creative-artistic individual and since I'm stepping into new territory by becoming a therapist I needed to see if I could rewrite my inner code.
4 Things I found out about myself:
1.) I missed blogging and creating.
2.) Daily blogging fed a very narcissistic side of me and I needed to take a long look at that.
3.) I pretty much closed my studio door and didn't go in there unless I had to. (Like grabbing a book or using the printer.)
4.) I discovered it is virtually impossible for me to thrive without creating something but since I forced myself into this experiment, I channelled my creative side and became very organized and focused.
I discovered becoming a therapist and being an artist go hand-in-hand. Each profession entails finding and discovering solutions to problems and expressing internal thoughts. The two compliment each other and I plan to use them together now and in the future with others.
This blog is going to organically transform into a place to build up others. I will still post art and creative ideas but I am going to inter-twine inspiration and thought-filled ideas into all of my posts. So I will not be able to post everyday... that's OK. What I do know is that whoever stops by just might get a little encouragement or kind thought to take with them out in this small world.
Hope to see you soon!
