Meghan’s CreativeMornings activity
Your people will have your back.
Incorporate your challenges into your creative work.
The things that challenge you and push you and make your life difficult are the things that make you different.
You have a built-in community of people who not only share your experiences, but are waiting for you to tell them.
We are all misfit toys and we are enough, just so.
It helps to remember that we are all products of every amazing, terrible, shameful experience we’ve been through.
You never get from ignore to overcome in one step.
Overcoming is where the joy is.
We can push ourselves beyond our comfort zones to actually leverage the struggles and the difficult life experiences that we’re going through to make our creative work better.
Struggle is universal. Struggle is a thing that everyone experiences…and it’s super uncomfortable.
When we find ourselves in moments where we’re like ‘argh’, those are actually the most critical moments for us to step forward.
We worry so often about what other people will think that it actually prevents us from stepping into our own light and sharing our truths with the world.
