I’ve done some crazy things in the name of creativity but they don’t compare to the things I’ve done in the name of fear.
For fear, I stopped writing for a few months (even though it’s the most spiritual thing that I do). For fear, I’ve kept quiet 🤫 about my true opinion. For fear, I delayed projects for a year +. For fear, I took jobs just for money. For fear, I wore sweatshirts in the summer. For fear, I said no to the trip I wanted to take and the guitar I wanted to buy. For fear, I didn’t respond for days. For fear, I made fun of myself. For fear, I said that I would quit.
Fear makes us act against ourselves. Fear makes us act against our values. Fear keeps us tiny. Fear keeps us comfortable but never satisfied.
Yet creativity is our wholeness. Creativity allows us to be who we are and have been all along.
For creativity, I sang my heart out, dressed in red sequins in front of my whole school. For creativity, I moved to a new city just because. For creativity, I pulled my hair in a crazy bun and danced like crazy to make my 9 year old campers laugh. For creativity, I sang for my biggest crowd only a month after losing my father. For creativity, I put my hand up to have my song critiqued. For creativity, I tried even when the odds were stacked against me. For creativity, I faced the blank page over and over again.
For fear, I said no. But creativity is a HELL YES.
What have you done for fear? What have you done for creativity?
