Yesterday as my struggle with my website layout touched on the point of frustration, I reached out to a group of business-oriented friends and asked for advice, suggestions, and recommendations. Someone asked what my site aspirations where. The question annoyed me. It triggered my resistance to set direction. I wanted to be content playing in the moment without claiming a goal because, if I do, I will need to show up and be accountable. What if I fail? What if I succeed?
It is a lot easier to live in the white noise of non-commitment. Blending into the background.
I realized that even though I want to find an authentic voice, I have resistance towards outlining the edges that define who I am. The moment I become honest about values, purpose, culture, beliefs the dust cloud of righteousness will fade. The calling becomes clear. Without clarity, I cannot state with any confidence where I am going.
It helps to clean the mirror so that you can see yourself.
What is the resistance that keeps you from claiming your art?
365 Days is my personal practise of putting out words and images each day.
