Thank God, The Universe, Source Energy, or whatever you call it for the awesome “coincidences” that happen every day. Sometimes you notice them, sometimes you don’t. For me, they make me feel like I’ve got good company, I’m on track, and I’m not alone.
So when I read an article relating exactly to my website idea just a few days after setting it up, I was pretty excited. Here’s the part that really resonated with me. It’s from an interview of Jane Campion, director of the new movie Bright Star-
Q: Please talk about becoming an artist.
I felt I was hiding and it was uncomfortable. I was in art school and the subject was not involving. I wanted to expose myself, my real concerns, what I was really curious about. What was holding me back was fear of exposure. When you are young you are innocent. You become self-conscious and then you have to earn that innocence again through knowledge. I feel like I’ve become innocent again. But I had to work for it. [emphasis mine]
For more, read the whole interview at The Huffington Post.
Jane just summarized the journey I’m on, and want to continue with you. I want us to work our way back to innocence, where all our dreams are possible. Except I don’t want it to be work, I want it to be fun. It will take energy and effort, but still be fun. You can imagine it like a kickball game. Yes, it involves kicking, running, catching, and throwing. But it’s a really fun game, and the exercise is good for you.
And it feels good to know that other people have done the same thing. I’m not so familiar with her personal story, but as of now Jane Campion is a successful, Academy Award winning film-maker and screenwriter. She’s a great example. And I’m going to take this inspiration and run with it. I hope you join me.Deep Thoughts | Comment (0)
