So I was listening to Dr. Pizza :P on Creative Pep Talk, Episode 116 (Unlock Your True Potential) and in this talk he talks about giving new ideas space to grow, by thinking on those things that haven’t been fully birthed yet, and letting yourself wrestle and work on it—this all comes down to experiments, and doing the work. Illustrator Rachel Place (check her out here!) turned me onto this talk and I’m ever so grateful that she did.
Because in this talk, Dr. Pizza (what is his REAL name?), he talks a lot about exploring those nudgings through our creative work. And WHAM! It hit me—my word is 'explore'.
Even though I realize I’ve BEEN exploring creatively all my life, and chronicled here on my blog (for the past 9 years—yikes), “explore” has chosen me and I need to honor this need in my life, without shame and tsks and criticism of the time it takes to become. It’s wasted energy, energy I could be using to continue to grow and move forward in my creative life.
So here I am. Raw, vulnerable, exposed and I intend to explore. I hope you join me <3 in your own discovery this year. <3
