What DO you want to make of this world of yours?
It is possible to make it, did you know that?
That's the first step to changing your world, to creating something new, to transforming yourself, to breaking out of your rut... believing that it is possible.
This is where art can help with transforming your very soul.
Art makes things possible. It creates them as a reality, even before they are a reality. As humans, when we imagine something, when we ponder how it could be created, when we mark down the boundaries of something, we are taking steps to make the ideas real.
Sorry to sound as if I am a text book, but I myself am trying to create something in my life. And I know the first step is to imagine it so clearly I can see the steps to take to make it real.
This very drawing/doodle/sketch I posted above is an exercise in creating what I want in the world.
Facing the empty page, I said, "what do I want to make in this world? what do I want to have? what do I want to see?"
What I wanted was positivity. What I wanted was energy. What I wanted was about giving, not taking. It was about belief and personal power. So I drew it.
And look at me here, today, the very next day, being positive, energetic (yes I washed the dishes before sitting down), sharing, and believing in the very possibilities I am creating.
Make the world you want.
Take the steps towards it.
It could be about a personal mindset, a zen belief in life, like here. It could be about creating an etsy shop. It could be about writing and publishing a novel. It could be about making an ice cream cake when you never have before.
See. I did that too. It was pretty tasty, although not perfect, and not without troubles in the execution. But I did it, and I could do it better next time.
Creating is about making the world you want to see, and it is about standing in your own power.
You can do it.
