It has been a very difficult week, mentally, emotionally, physically, spiritually.
Last night I asked a dear friend to help me out with a photoshoot, I had to dive into the artistic and creative realm. I find that no matter what is ‘eating’ at us, to work through issues in an artistic form is very therapeutic.
I have been thinking a lot lately…how each of us are in our own prisons.
It could be a job you hate, the country you live in, the person you’re with, personal demons, or chronic health conditions.
In a sense, unknowingly, we did this to ourselves.
Not listening carefully enough to the inner voice, fear of being lonely, fear we are not good enough, the list goes on.
If one wants something bad enough, with all of their might, the possibilities are endless. With our mind we can bend the universe into what we want. Our dreams are our freedom.
We have to retrain our brain…
changing ‘what if’ into something great….
‘what if’ I beat my disease?
‘what if’ I leave my partner?
‘what if’ I quit my job and pour all of myself into what I really want?
‘what if’ I speak my mind and am no longer afraid of hurting other people?
‘what if’ all of this was suppose to happen to make ME the best ME I could possibly be?
we CAN break free!
