That is what the artist Henri Matisse said. And I have to agree.
You are an artist…Your masterpiece is your life.
Your world is your canvas. Your ideas and desires are the sketches. Your thoughts, words, and attitudes are the paint. Your body is the brush. Your actions are the strokes. Your skills are the actions you use to apply the paint. Your faith and gratitude determine how extraordinary your work of art is.
You are a Badass. Never doubt your amazing, and unique talents. There is only one you. No one else can do what you can. You are here for a reason. You have a mission to fulfill. So go out there and create some magic. Paint your canvas in glorious colors. And whatever you paint with your imagination will come to be a part of your reality if you trust and have faith that the Universe is sending you miracles.
Embrace the innocence of a child and color outside the line. Each day is a new opportunity to boldly march in the direction of your dreams. I say this now. But this wasn’t always my reality. For many years I showed up for 90 hour work weeks, as a forensic fraud investigator. Cue needles being jammed into my creative eyeballs.
But I was miserable and uninspired. I dreaded every day. And the big paycheck definitely wasn’t worth it. So I ignored the advice of my colleagues, parents, and friends and I decided to follow my passion. And I am so freaking glad I did. Every day I wake up all smiles.
My yellow brick road is paved with joy, abundance, miracles manifested, and brand new adventures. No more sterile office desk in a tiny windowless cubicle with flicking fluorescent lights. No more billing my time in 10, 15, and 20-minute increments.
Now my time is for creating. I feel alive building and doing fun projects all my own. And I have realized that if God’s voice is silence, then His language is creativity. When you are creating you are inspired from the root word inspirito. You are literally in spirit and with His help all things are possible.
So I encourage you to start creating. Paint, draw, sing, sculpt, cook, write, dance, design, play. Even if it’s just a few hours every day. Embrace the life you are destined to live. Because when you follow your bliss you will meet with success. I guarantee it.
