Happy Monday | Create Yourself

Copyright Ardean Peters

Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself. – George Bernard Shaw

And so the task is at hand. And the power is in your hands. Or I should say my hands.
Who do I really want to be? ‘Cause I will be honest and say, that I don’t know yet. I have an inkling and I am moving in the direction, but it feels slow, un-sure. Still afraid to really boldly say ‘THIS IS ME’. This is the me I want to be. Yesterday I said to myself “Start moving towards those things that attract you, authentically. Move away from those that don’t. Become who you yearn to be.” And I think that was, no is, a creative thought. Something inside telling me, ‘This is what you have to do.’ And maybe it is as easy as just starting to move away, and stop doing the things you might think you have to and just do what you like.

This Ted Talk (how I love these!), talks about how your unconscious mind is really making the decisions. And that ‘…Most of the time BELIEF requires EVIDENCE to make a change.’ So my questions are: How do you change your unconscious mind? And HOW do you get that evidence? Hmmm…. For now, I will just keep making portraits and seeing and documenting the light ’cause that is what I know I like for sure and start moving more into my own authenticity 🙂

Tell me something good
