The Sneaky Excuses That Have Been Holding me Back Creatively + Steal my Strategies for Losing ‘Em. Ep 254

6/6/2024
If you are a multi passionate creator this episode is especially gonna be for you, because it’s an exercise in self trust, in doing it messy, in practical tips of how to get back in your alignment and make what you’re meant to make. We’re really meant to be in fullest expression of our authentic selves. The rosebushes in my neighborhood are blooming so huge and so glorious, i have to walk by them and smell them every day. And no one is looking at those roses and saying how dare you grow, how dare you bloom so beautifully and so abundantly. All of nature conspires to make the rose bushes bloom that abundantly. The water, the sunlight, even the cold of winter–they are play their part in helping the roses bloom because that's what roses are meant to do. You are meant to be the fullest expression of yourself creatively. And my guess is that you might be playing small, at some point, in some way, because our human noise sometimes gets in the way, so today’s episode is for cutting through that noise and getting back to your business which is blooming ever more brightly, with all your fragrance, color, and full height.
