Being Seen & Being Heard
As a performer and artist, I have a strong desire to be seen and to be heard. I want to make a ripple on this great blue planet. I want to make an impact.
Just being an entrepreneur is not good enough for me. I need to create. I need to create art. I want to have that experience of breaking through as an artist. I want to show the world what I am capable of. Have you ever had the moment when you were so hungry it started to make your stomach hurt? That is the feeling I have inside of me when it comes to being seen and being heard. It is a hunger that never goes away. It subsides after I create something, but it is quick to return. I feel as though even when I have that breakthrough moment, of course I will experience happiness and relief, however, I know that hunger to create will still live on inside of me.
Creating. That is why I am here. I must create. I have to do it. Art for my soul is like air for my lungs. I want to inspire people. I want to inspire people to think and see differently. I want to inspire people to believe in themselves. I want to inspire people to go live the life they always wanted. That is all I can do, just live my life and be an inspiration. My life has changed in various ways because of people I have met and people that I have listened to or seen in a video – simply because they were being themselves. When you are being true to yourself, you begin to shine. That is when people start to see you. The unique qualities of your soul begin to be recognized by those around you. Fuck jealousy. Be inspired. When I look at people doing amazing things I think wow, I didn’t even know that was possible, but now I do. I’m grateful for those people.
I have learned some lessons in the pursuit of my dreams. Im aware that it is okay to fail. It will inevitably happen. It is how we grow and change. But the biggest thing I have learned is to not be discouraged and to just persist. There have been times where I have quit and took time off. Perhaps if I had just sucked it up and continued I would be closer to where I want to be. Commitment. Even if it seems as though its not working, keep going. That is what I remind myself. To just keep going.
My main focus right now is the YouTube Channel and this blog. I love writing and really enjoy making different kinds of videos. Having the freedom to create in different genres is satisfying. I always hear people saying it is better to focus on one thing and maybe that is what I will end up doing, but right now it is fun to explore.
How are you being seen? How are you being heard? What makes you wake-up? What gets you excited? I believe we all have the ability to be extraordinary, do you?
