It sucks because you know you’re not that good at it.
And because you know you’ll never get better at it unless you keep going.
It sucks even though no one knows what they’re doing,
Facebook never lets on.
A panel of judges exists in your mind,
And gives you scores on everything you do
You perform for imaginary approval
With made up rules and rewards.
It sucks being afraid.
And it sucks being vulnerable.
Yeah, it sucks either way.
So why not go the way of freedom?
Your work is becoming more alive
and learning how to flow.
It sucks being half alive.
And believing you’re not good enough
Pretend you’re good at it,
Be kind and show up anyway.
Without creativity you might always believe that people exist on a ladder
You might misplace yourself along the way.
You might stay in that stuck place forever and
Never be swept up in the moment again.
Remember what you already know
That life is moving and flowing and you are meant to contribute.
This world doesn’t need you to be put together.
This world needs you to be free.
Creativity is where you belong
It's the perfectly shaped corner where only you can fit.
Begin the work and it will change your world.
Write. Sing. Make. Build. Paint. Create. Craft. Speak.
Like a woman bringing life, become a door and let it open.
Like a wire bringing electricity, become a conduit and let it flow.
You’re a mysterious portal.
You’re a live wire.
Make the panel of imaginary judges your first exhibition of creativity.
And make pretending you’re good at this
