I think one of the beautiful things about being a creator is that our work supports and reflects our life process. The creative process is not only about expressing our views and ideas on something, but it is also a way to discover our inner voices – by giving them a platform to let it out.
Through creative work, even if that work is sometimes dark or negative in content, one can still find beauty in it – because it is honest. For me, truth and beauty go hand in hand.
I think that when we decide to be honest with ourselves, even if the stories we harbor are scary, they become less frightening in telling them.
Personally, I have learned how important art is in my life. When I do not create, I feel lousy. My strategy to keep motivated has been a simple one: much like good food and exercise is a part of my routine to stay fit, creativity is part of my life to stay spiritually healthy. By creating, I am supporting myself through my journey on this planet. I am giving my spirit the space it needs to make sense of life…both its ups and downs.
In other words, the creative process supports the life process. I understand that supporting my need to create is crucial. This is certainly easier when I have others who can support me. But I know that such is not always the case so I also must keep myself motivated. As a coach, I hope to inspire and to teach my clients to do the same…while offering them support as well.

Somebody said to me the other day: “I hate the way (xyz) people speak. It is aggressive and rude.”
We all express ourselves differently. Often when something or someone is really unlike what we are used to, we pass judgment.

The only thing that we are ultimately responsible for is our self.
When things go wrong, often, we try to right them by changing the people or the conditions in our environment. We focus on the external rather than the internal.
