I just realized when this journey (of coming home to my SELF) began. Back in 1998-ish, I earned a position I had really wanted with a supervisor I really respected. Then, things went sideways when a new supervisor came on board.
Suffice it to say, this person didn’t respect me and felt it was her job to mold me into a carbon copy of her. I might have been on board with that, if she had been more nurturing than she was bullying and demeaning.
I’ll say it plainly, she was a bitch - saving any source of femininity for her clients and spending all her masculine power on her (all female) underlings.
Needless to say, I became pretty unhappy in what had been a job I loved in a company I was devoted to. Rather than throw in the towel, I put my head down, tried to twist myself into what she demanded and was effing miserable.
That’s when I found a hobby that became my therapy (and a whole lotta gifts for people). The piece pictured is one I kept for myself. 😉
Which brings me to my realization today - that immersing myself in creativity and allowing it to have an outlet - was my first (unknowing) step on the road back to ME, because it put me in the flow.
Creativity stems from our 2nd Chakra. Same place our money, sensuality and personal power come from. For me, I couldn’t express any personal power in that job, so I used a hobby to unleash it (though at the time, it felt like an escape).
What about you? Do you have a creative outlet? Something that allows you to express yourself, without judgements or limits?
