When ones job depends on the cooperation of others it has its own unique challenges. People are so random in how they will respond. Nothing is truly predictable anymore. Like the cliche says the struggle is real. Just do the best you can and hope for the best. Yes those are 3 cliches in a row but the sentiments are needed to keep one going.
Creative people are a different sort of people. They have a spirit about them that is meant to change the world. With their work comes a responsibility to inspire others and make things better for everyone. Talented people are everywhere and it’s awesome to see them doing what they do. Unfortunately, many creatives have been censored and lost their lives for living their truth and answering the call of life. Some works have been deemed too radical, too scandalous, too revolutionary.
Art like beauty is in the eye of the beholder or in this case creator. The ability to change hearts and minds through art, music, literature, dance is truly powerful. I hope my blogging can do that in some small measure. The greatest thing we can do is to love one another and to inspire others to do the same through our gifts and talents. Everyone has a gift they can share.
Originals are nonconformists, people who not only have new ideas but take action to champion them. They are people who stand out and speak up. Originals drive creativity and change in the world. They’re the people you want to bet on.
Being original is important. Anything new is worth exploring and if it doesn’t work out then try again. Any inventor will share their experience with you. Creativity is indeed a process and you want to get behind those who are doing it.
All-in-all let your light shine through whatever medium you have chosen to express yourself. Be brave and have fun shaking things up along the way. Don’t worry about causing chaos all the good people do it. Besides some everyone needs little shaking up.
Everyone has some sort of rule of life, philosophy, personal theology or another guide that helps them through life. All of it should be fluid and flexible. Perhaps it should evolve as you change and as the world changes. Yes, circumstances and life changes that are unavoidable. The more that we approach life from an open mind the better off we are. If we do this more people can come into the big tent which is a good thing, right? The thing about us is that we can change how we do things and commune with nature and our fellow human beings.
More to follow as I adapt and change and all that jazz.
As people seek ways to live and be their best selves they need to know they have value. I am not talking about money but something much more important that as they go through life they have something that can make their world better. Value and purpose in my mind go hand in hand.
As we discover our purpose what we do has value to those who are benefiting from the gifts you bring to the table. So many people are seeking their place and where they fit in. Some people are misfits but that doesn’t mean they are relegated to be on the outside looking in. They too can fit somewhere in someplace.
The value of a man (or woman) should be seen in what he gives and not in what he is able to receive.
People who are getting older want to be of use and to know they still matter in the grand scheme of things. For those who seek to serve they should be given every opportunity to do so. There is much work to be done and people really want to make a difference if you think about it. So my friends no matter who you are you have value, you are most certainly enough.
I’m glad it’s Friday but today seems a little freaky. Maybe with national and world events keeping many on edge it’s understandable. From impeachment to Brexit to the virus in China a lot of stuff is going on at the moment.
I suppose we need to be as resolute and do our parts to be kind and inspire some courage. Fear not good people. Grace and peace and love. Make it a good last day of January.
