Let It Go

the-work-of-art-is-a-scream-of-freedom-quote-1

I don’t do as much art as I’d like to, because I think it would be a different kind of release. The idea of a “scream of freedom” is something I desperately need.  I try as hard as I can to release my tension and fear and everything else I’m holding back when I write, but it’s hard when the people pleaser in me doesn’t want to complain or upset anybody by telling the truth. I want to tell the truth; I want to live the truth.

I live small, trying to ask as little from life as I can. That’s not the way we’re supposed to take this journey. We’re created to be creators. We’re created to live as people whose hearts and minds are open to others. We’re created to do more than occupy a small dark room that might operate as a prison.

That’s what my scream is telling me. That’s what I need in my life. What do you need?

About lana1967

I'm a Southern girl at heart who wants to build a community of people who believe they can change the world with words like "love" and "freedom" when they become more than words, but actions in our work and our daily lives.
