When I pause my artmaking, the one thing that gets my creative juices flowing are the stories of other creatives.
What cool things are being made by others?
How are they doing this, and why?
I love learning from seeing and listening to the stories of other creatives.
Almost always, this leads me back in reflection to my own story.
What is the story I have been creating?
However, the best, most exciting part of this question appears when I go one step further.
And that is what I am talking about today.
The unwritten part of all our stories is always the most alluring.
It can keep you up at night in a good way.
How much are you willing to change your current story to reflect the hopes, dreams, and desires you have for your art / life?
I now know that a big part of what transpires in my art and life, and I believe for others too, begins to be made possible by imagining more vibrant and spacious stories for ourselves.
It is quite a simple idea. (And this is what gets me so excited!)
Changing the story we have been telling ourselves in the past is how we arrive someplace different and juicier in the future.
What new part of your story are you ready to create?

This just might be the first step of making your new story come true.
Have a great Sunday!
