The Defiant Creative
Short musings and permission to breathe.
Guys, I often find myself at the intersection of two strong vibes: wanting to bury my head in the sand and hide, and simultaneously, wanting to be clearly seen and known. I've been wrestling with this for some time, navigating my own cognitive dissonance, and sitting in it, hoping the Universe magically appears, taps me on the shoulder, and proceeds to fills me in on myself. The thing is, I wasn't made to go small. That really annoys some people, but it also excites others who also find their dreams and ideas too big for their own humanoid bodies. Usually, when I feel the urge to hide instead of speaking up and just doing my thing, I'm hearing some voice from the past that made me feel like either my personality, ideas, or body were too big.
Guess what? They weren't, they're not, and neither are yours! Starting now, every time I want to hide for fear of being disliked or resented or whatever, I think I'll practice taking a big breath, showing up, and getting down with my big-in-every-way self instead.
How about them apples?
