‘Creative Sourcery’ – Day 300/365

‘Creative Sourcery’ – Day 300/365

Scary Reason No 4 to not pursue your creative path⁠
.⁠
Bumping up against a wall (or multiple granite plinths) of self-doubt and/or realisations of being potentially potential-less.⁠
.⁠
Ho Hum. This is a fun one. What sounds like self-pity to an outsider can be a crippling thing to face if you have ‘perfection’ tendencies. 🙋🏼 And the worst part is – the more you repeat it to yourself – the bigger and more real a fear it becomes to overcome.⁠
.⁠
You know who else makes good use of repetitive phrases? Witches. While folklore may attribute their magic to potionary of sorts – witches are in truth a very literal and sometimes exaggerated manifestation of individuals who aren’t afraid of using their powers; powers of persuasion that is. ⁠
.⁠
So instead of casting yourself some dooming spells, repeat good magic phrases to yourself – again and again until you believe them.⁠
.⁠
I went with “With every day you’ll be better than you were yesterday.” That way I’m reminding myself that ⁠
1) in order to improve I have to start⁠
2) the only person I’m comparing myself to is myself⁠

This kind of repetition quickly turns insurmountable granite plinths of self-trepidation, that you think someone else put there (but really it was you) into granite pillars of self-worth realisation. You’re doing your thing for only you. Your journey of improving. ⁠
And You Can. You can. You can. 🌟⁠
