In this week’s post I would like to take a moment to acknowledge that pursuing your passions is hard.
I know you’ve probably heard many times already, “I may not be easy but it is worth it” and I am especially seeing this true now. This is especially true when facing your own doubts and worries coupled with negativity from other people. I’m not just highlighting others’ negativity in regards to your pursuits but also their base influence of negative energy.
Negative people are everywhere. They can be anyone from a stranger checking you out at a store register or a family member in your own home. They’re at your day job, the night clubs, and driving next to you on the road. Learning to deal with their impact on your attitude and in your life can be draining – absolutely draining – even for someone experienced in dealing with such things.
This is okay.
It is okay to need to step outside and scream or to have at it with a punching bag. Please take the time to take care of yourself and especially to get all the frustration inside either from your own efforts or dealing with others out of your system. This clears the way for inspiration. Processing and ridding yourself of it can be inspiring for a project in itself. Regardless of what you do with the ideas learn to get rid of it – to refresh yourself.
This is one of the minor things I show Kiara dealing with in the Green Book. Her situation calls for a stretch of powerful courage and gentle patience with no lack of frustration in between. Writing helps me both to show how to deal with these situations and to enter a more peaceful state of mind through storytelling. While sometimes I don’t know if I write these posts for you or for me I’m hoping that in the end they are showing you you are not alone and that they are helping someone somewhere.
Much love, guys and gals~
