How Much Do You Really Care?


It’s the most important question to ask yourself and others: how much do you really, genuinely and in brutal honesty, care?

Do you care enough to show up, do your work and share it? Not occasionally but every day. Or do you care enough to change it, if you feel it’s not what you love doing most.

Do you care enough to stop complaining, channel your frustration and create something? Not in principle, but today. Right now.

Do you care enough to learn to love obstacles? They are, you know, the only true indicators of your growth.

Do you care enough to engage in an open-hearted conversation with your fears, without trying to silence them or make them go away?

Do you care enough to finish that report, create that painting, send that job application letter or write that post and hit the ‘publish’ button?

The irony of it all is that you can’t teach others to care. You can only show them what it feels like when you do.

So do you? Because when you do, magical things happen. Lives change. Minds awaken. Eyes open. Smiles appear on the lips of strangers somewhere. Hearts skip a beat out of a newly discovered sense of purpose. Some doors may close for a last time, other doors may open for a first. New ideas are born. Revolutions start. The Universe evolves.

Your only duty is to show up and create. Something. Anything. Right now. You never know whose world it might change for the better.

Creativity, Clarity and Opportunity

The passion to create art brings with itself an unimaginable power of healing and beauty. Creativity can be seen as a wonderful prayer as it connects us directly to a higher consciousness. Tapping in its resources requires faith in our ability to be actively patient and confidence in the path that is revealing itself in sometimes mysterious ways. Great art comes from truth and doesn't need validation.  To create is essential if we wish to bring clarity to the realm of possibility. Possibilities are fuzzy, attractive, indefinite and alluring paths we can take. When we choose, we eliminate the noise imposed by less relevant (yet attractive) concepts and focus on what we feel is of value. Ideas come to life when acted upon, not simply recorded and safely placed in a drawer. Sharing them might feel vulnerable but at the same time, it brings us down to the arena of other creators. To be judged or criticized is to be seen, not just looked at. Once our ideas catch on fire, there’s an im

What I've learned from Elizabeth Gilbert's Big Magic

Arrogant belonging: declare that you ARE, claim your place in the world. Liberate yourself from the desire to necessarily help others/be of service through your creativity; just make stuff for its own sake, for your own sake. If you love something, persevere. If you love something, believe it loves you back. Regain your curiosity, cultivate your inquisitiveness. Follow each clue, no matter how mundane. Chase every reference. Explore every spark of interest, no matter how fleeting it might be. (Your) Art matters and simultaneously it doesn't matter at all. State it out loud: I am an artist/writer/poet/creator. Rejection is not a valid reason to quit, neither is the lack of audience. Inspiration and ideas seek you to manifest them. Show it you are ready and capable of doing that. Be ready, show up, do. Make commitment to the doing, not to the outcome. As artists and creative entrepreneurs, we all need some support and reassurance when we feel our creative muse is slightly less presen
