Even in literature and art, no man who bothers about originality will ever be original. Whereas if you simply try to tell the truth (without caring twopence how often it has been told before) You will, nine times out of ten, become original without ever having noticed it. -C.S. Lewis
This can be hard for creatives. We judge ourselves so critically, we never think we are good enough or that other’s work is better. When we speak our truth and create from the heart, ignoring all the negativity or judgments, that’s when the magic happens. That’s when we become original.
I’ve struggled with this, finding my voice and being scared to use it…to truly be me. I’ve had controlling people in my life, trying to hold me back. This year as I continue to write and grow, I’m confident that will fade away just like C.S. Lewis says…without me even noticing.
Have a great weekend and BE YOU.
Listen to your heart and your gut, not what others tell you!!!
