I chanced upon the Write On Workshop on the page of a Facebook friend. The workshop came at a time when I have been desperately trying to ignore a soft but persistent voice to create a blog. I had a lot of reasons not to:
- I am happy with what I am doing now – I’m fulfilled at work, at home and in my community
- I don’t have the time for another activity in my fully packed schedule
- Why will I bare my soul to strangers?
- The world doesn’t need another artist’s blog
But the real reason is this… I am afraid. I’m not good enough. There are lot better artists than I.
But, having gone through the exercise of creating our mood board, I realized that despite my fear, despite my apprehension, this is something I MUST do. How can I fulfill my life’s purpose to “create for others” if I simply create? I am obliged to share, good or bad, with you. The words below capture precisely what I am trying to say:
I share with you now what I shared with my fellow workshop participants my soul words. Words that describe who I am or in my case, words to describe what I am called to BE.
