Becoming Ourselves

Becoming yourself is a creative act, though not an act of creation. Your identity is already there; it just takes some  creative thinking and an open mind to find and cultivate it.

Becoming isn’t so much about adding as it is subtracting, peeling back and shedding layers of garbage that muffle, obscure and suppress. Old, destructive mindsets. Emotional issues and scars. Insecurities. Becoming means removing the excess  until we find the essence of what’s underneath, ourselves and nothing else.

Then, we nurture what’s there until it grows and sprouts into something real and alive, a thriving force that takes in life and translates experiences into creative output. Living and breathing passion and purpose. Uninhibited by fears, doubts, and insecurities. Complete, evolving, authentic and glowing.

Good luck.
