Deciding that I didn't have decide was the hardest conclusion to come to around the subject of who I was going to allow my creativity to make of me.
With the conditioned thinking that you go to school, pick a major, graduate, get a job and stay there... for years, I stumbled over myself. Worried that I wouldn't be able to find place in the world because I had too many interests. The thought that I might be found out to be a fraud. That I wasn't really as skilled as I could be or that I'm not really that talented because I hadn't/haven't perfected my skillsets like other "artists." All this stemmed from my inability to pick a lane. And stay in it.
As a graphic design major in college, I hoped that I would find my thing and stay there. In a way, I did; but the experience expanded my interests further into more things. By the time I graduated I accepted that I was just a person who knew a little about a lot and could execute those things with talent and ease with the right amount of passion, dedication, and time.
It wasn't until I turned 25 that I grasped the fact that my lane is not the specific skill itself, but that I am a naturally born creator. I write. I dance. I design. I used to play music. I love crafting. Making gifts. I can sew. I can draw and paint. I can build things. I can take photos. Edit video and audio. I just recently learned I could model amongst many other things.
My truth is that self-expression is what births creativity and makes me feel the most alive. It doesn't matter how it's done as long as I get to create freely. It took me 25 years to understand that I don't have to choose one thing. All of it is me. And from that moment on I chose to always walk in that reality.
