lockdown diaries (part 7)
"I need to continue to lean in, acknowledge, enjoy AND LOVE my sexuality"
And honey you ARE! And your gender! So exciting! 😁
I've been writing stories for as long as I can remember. Devouring books and other media has been my life for a long time. Even when I went to Uni, it was for the knowledge and the stories and the ways to better understand, so I could create better Things.
The exact mission itself has shifted over the years, but I've always tried to shift with it as much as I felt able. I know I've missed some bits, and I've definitely failed a bunch, but even when I couldn't actively create, my brain never stopped trying.
And anytime I go a short while without creating, I remember that doing so is an essential thing. I can't function if I'm not creating.
I mean, OK, I don't function that well in general, but I function even worse when I'm not giving my brain it's freedom. The exact thing sometimes has to vary, but I need a creative release or everything just turns greyscale, and I go into a slump.
I'm so glad you're finding your way. You have so much cool stuff to give and do and make!
I'm real jealous of your proximity to doughnuts right now!
Not creative but, I’m starting to listen to my passion and switch careers.
Every six months I would have a breakdown at work and thought "I can’t do this anymore, I’m just going to quit and go for it". Never did.
Two weeks ago (exactly?) something switched. I am just going to do it. Or at least try. And see where it goes!
Listening & loving....As one of my favourites once said- in the words of Maya Angelou, “You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.” Keep being you Lauren! Keep creating & following those dreams ✨
Also just to mention: this is such a raw, vulnerable share once again this week Lauren - you are such a brave writer - you are such a brave human - you are showing us all that transformation, weakness, strength, self love & the ability to look back is possible while stepping forward into a lighter, more loving self ✨
