On Friday, September 13th 2019 we are hosting the 3rd International Becoming Artist Exhibition.
On Monday, our team had a meeting about the venue - the venue that we booked for the exhibition back in January. A venue that we've been excited about.
We discovered that there's a problem with the venue and have decided to step into searching-for-an-alternative-space mode. Now. Two months before the exhibition opens.
Do I want to share this?
Does it trigger a whole bunch of fears and a desire to not share it so that everyone else feels okay, so that we keep up the right facade, and so that no one else is bothered by this information?
Is that my job?
From an early age I took on the belief and responsibility that I needed to take care of others. I worried that if I didn't, they wouldn't be okay.
Is this arrogant and totally codependent?
Am I still caught in its clutches?
Am I working on it and willing to shift it?
Because I'm not responsible for how you feel and you're not responsible for how I feel. Do I want to treat others with kindness and hope that they feel beautiful about who they are? ABSOLUTELY.
But more than that I want all of us to grow, evolve, and Become who we're here to be. That means facing the things we'd rather not face. That means being uncomfortable. That means having to do the last things in the world that we want to do.
Like admit when life happens.
Like find a new venue at the last minute.
Like believe that it's possible without fanfare of drama.
Like not take on the emotional responsibility of others and not expect others to do it for me.
WHY AM I SHARING THIS?
Because this is where the magic is. Because being brave and being aligned with who we truly are is a profound gift. If you want to learn more about who you are, about what your purpose is and how you can share it bravely, join us next week for a 5-Day Mini-Course:
