Today I want you to write a piece, write something, say something without holding back, without holding your tongue, without feeling like you need to be right or without feeling like you need to fight. I want you to write something, draw something, sketch something that makes you believe in your inner voice. I want you to write like you do, write how you would, say what you feel aloud, experience loss, betrayal, hurt and take every single emotion and make something great. If you’re rolled over and feel alone or hurt or destroyed I want you to find your voice, a voice, I don’t want you to feel like you need to be perfect, I just want you to write something. I don’t think you need to have it all together and say all the right words, all you need to do is write and say something that makes you happy.
I think before we start something, before we do anything we think we need to be perfect and so we don’t start but the reality is, no one is. Nothing is. Not a single company, not a single brand, not a single person you see is perfect. Someone is busting their backs off, someone is putting a poster in a car to get it to the right venue, someone is taking a sticker off of a logo to make the logo beautiful, everyone is just trying and doing the best they can with what they have.
If you feel like you’re not good enough, just try with one thing, try with something. Even if it’s small. Just try it.
I noticed something recently. I would start writing and then the voice of someone else would interject and say ‘mmm maybe that’s not right, or maybe you should say it like that.’ I didn’t know how much someone else’s voice could overpower my own until it started to nudge me, back and forth. I would say one thing and immediately I would hear autocorrect type something else. Don’t filter your life. You are just right being who you are. Don’t fight your inner self, there is truth there. There is power there. There is grace there. Do not fight your inner voice. There is truth there. That is where your strength lies.
You are good all on your own, your voice, your strength, your love matters. For it is in your fumbles that you find grace. It is in instaibilty that we find balance.
