Content creation involves so many facets of creativity, storytelling, listening, skills that need to be developed. #Writing , #filming , #photography , sometimes #design . #Creativity takes #courage , to both engage in it to bring something to life and to share that #expression with an audience. It’s no joke how being creative really is about facing any #fears of inadequacies, fears of being seen or judged, the awkward feeling we have when first starting out and finding our flow. That stage when we aren’t as good as we like to be, but we need to space for ourselves to #evolve and #grow with it. Knowing your WHY is paramount to working through the early stages, finding your #grit and being persistent in building your dreams with your own hands. Creativity is giving form to the #vision . That can be a challenge filled with infinite lessons about ourselves and our connection to the world and other beings. But it’s also an adventure in itself, not a destination. .
My challenge is bridging my love of #history , #culture and #heritage with my #creativespirit that’s been screaming for a medium, and my skill for #storytelling that I’ve had since childhood. The early stages are a bit messy, and a bit unrefined. Like pouring out a box of mixed up puzzle pieces and trying to make sense of the jumbled pile while keeping the vision in your mind of what it’s needs to look like when you finish. Each piece of the puzzle holds value and nothing can be skipped in the forming of the bigger picture. Every piece is unique, every experience leads to the completion of larger journey. Why not at least make it #authentic ? Why not make it #interesting ?
