Yes to your adventure?

"The big question is whether you are going to be able to say a hearty yes to your adventure." Joseph Campbell


As quoted from Brene Brown's Rising Strong. I'm slowly working my way through this book, digesting her words about our falling and rising, about integrating all aspects of ourselves from the good to the bad, owning our stories in ways that make us strong, whole, and wholehearted.

All of this comes at a time where I am working hard to embrace my adventure: to integrate aspects of myself that are not easy to own: my High Sensitivity and consequent social anxiety. Working within one, working my way out of another.

Because creativity is a lot like Fight Club

This whole creativity thing works like the Fight Club. There's a battle our own self-rejection and creative acrobatics. We have extensive inner dialogs, working out the intricacies of a good/bad idea. It's all mush. It can get ugly. But OH the glory that comes when something comes to life. OH the glory. This is why we are in the fight.

Brene, the one who is changing our culture, has much to say about creatives and the arena. If you love Brene Brown, creativity, or self-understanding, this is for you.
