I recently came across a blog called Finding Me In France. It is about a woman who became a doctor to please everyone around her. She wanted to write but pushed that desire to the side to become what she “should” be, what people expected her to be. She practiced as a doctor for many years until one day, late at night, she had a come-to-Jesus of sorts with herself and realized that what her soul needed then and had always needed was to write and be in France.
It probably isn’t easy to up and move to France. The point is that it is fairly common to ignore what our creative spirits want and go with what society wants. It often comes to a point to where we don’t even remember what creative pursuits we longed for so. It is at that point that our spirits need us to remember the most.
The good news is that there are people – the members of this group! – who want you to listen to and follow that creative spirit’s voice inside you. It is still there, I promise. No one here is suggesting that you up and quit your job and move to France but we are suggesting that you start actively listening to the natural creative tendencies you have.
So tell us…
What did you dream of when you were younger?
What caused you to push that dream to the side?
What core negatives have you been told, told yourself or believed?
What affirmations will make a difference for you?
BONUS: If you had five other lives to lead, what would you do in each of them?
