One of the lessons I have learnt over and over again through my career has been the importance of honouring your own voice, your own perspective and your own self-expression. In order to do this, you must pay close attention to your creative intuition, and have the courage to back yourself.
In my own experience, it is easy to undermine yourself, to question your ability and to try to please others, however, as a creative spirit, the most valuable path is one of expressing yourself honestly.
Paying attention to your physical and emotional responses is a way into discovering your true creative voice. Try something out and see how it interacts with you physically and emotionally…notice how your body responds…listen to your emotional reaction.
Experiment with another option – a different colour, phrase direction, character – and notice what impact this has on you physically or emotionally. How does it compare to the first time?
Try another option, again noticing your reactions. With practice, objectively noticing your reactions, you will become more finely tuned to your physical and emotional intelligence, and your body will be able to guide you more authentically in your creative exploration and decision making.
I encourage you to keep searching at all times for your own personal creative expression – your true creative voice…and enjoy this process of discovery.
