It took me roughly thirty years to realise my dreams. Dreams I held as a child of living a creative life were mentally filed away in the same unrealistic compartment as being a princess and having magical powers. Life became about survival, about comfort and peace and societal expectations.
It wasn't until I found the things I worked hard for that I realised something was missing, but what?
Making the decision to pursue my dreams of living a creative life by starting a creative side hustle swamped any attempt I had had in my life of honouring my creativity (with a dance class here and painting tutorial there).
I am overjoyed with gratitude that I found my purpose again, that I am nurturing the little girl that just wanted to express herself, so much so that it belittles the sense of guilt and regret of not trusting myself sooner.
The perception that you have that you 'can't' or you are 'not ready yet' is false. Don't make the same mistake as me, cast off the shackles of doubt and trust your crazy idea. You won't regret it for one second.
