Wishcast Wednesday – What do you wish for your creativity?
Jamie Ridler’s Wishcast question this week is – What do you wish for your creativity?
As usual, Jamie has asked a perfect question that turns me inward to think about what I’m doing with my life and where I wish to be…
Ahhh! Creativity…I just love that word! Sometimes I feel strong enough in my confidence around my creativity to actually feel like an artist–yes, I said the “a” word.
But because of the life I live, by day an office worker–which I also love–and by night a creative person, I often feel not deserving of the word “artist”.
I guess there is some part of me who believes if I lived in some downtown loft with cement walls and surrounded by colors, living a “bohemian” lifestyle, my hair in dreadlocks, wearing overalls. I know I’m being silly now, but there’s also a part of me who would LOVE to be living that lifestyle too.
But…I know that I need the schedule of my office job, the ability to shuffle paper, the opportunity to be of service to those in my workplace who benefit by the work that I do to make their jobs easier. I also, however, need the freedom to be creative in my home time.
I also feel I need to live in suburbia–where I am most comfortable–being closer to nature, having a large yard to garden in, visit neighbors over the fence, feeling a measure of safety, etc.
So…to finally answer the question, what do I wish for my creativity?
I wish for the continued freedom to be able to create what I wish–and to have multiple projects on the go.
I wish for the confidence every day to call myself an artist.
I wish for the confidence to start selling the items I create on a regular basis.
I wish to find my creative niche for selling–I have so many varied creative interests, mediums, etc.
I wish to have my global recognition for my creations.
What do you wish…
