“Every woman has the power to seduce the world with her uniqueness, passion, and creativity.” – Donna Karan
What are you are naturally good at? What moves you to tears? What makes your heart race and your entire nervous system switch to overdrive? We all have a unique talent to share with the world. I believe that one of the main sources of unhappiness stems from stifling our creativity. We let fear and insecurity stand in our way, and refuse to share our passion with the world. How can we feel fulfilled and happy if we are ignoring the things that make us feel the most?
I spent most of my life thinking I wasn’t good enough. I have been obsessed with performance art and writing since I was 2 years old. I used to sing along with my father, before I could even form full sentences. I spent hours upon hours of my grade school days writing in a diary and writing plays which I encouraged my brother and cousins to perform on the prestigious stage of our brick fire place. I could turn anything into a stage. Yet as I grew older, I let fear creep in and stop me from creating. The idea that someone will always be “better” was haunting. It took me decades to realize that everyone has a talent in this world, but mine is uniquely my own. No one can do things exactly the way that I do. Who am I to decide that I am going to stop creating when I have been given these innate gifts? I have been selfish and ego-driven. As vulnerable as it is, its time for me to be raw and uninhibited in my creative expression.
I have met many women who don’t feel that they are creative. They haven’t yet become aware of their own unique talent. We all know subconsciously what comes naturally to us, but it takes some soul searching to bring this awareness to the surface. I would love to help you to uncover the mystery of your true passion and see you on your journey to discovering self-expression.
“Creation is a better means of self-expression than possession; it is through creating, not possessing, that life is revealed.” – Vida Dutton Scudder
