Did you know you could light a candle just with light? :) A few years back I was following the photography magazine's photography tutorials, and this was part of the "painting with light" challenge and each month we were challenged to try out our skills. This was my interpretation of painting with light. "Light the candle".
We are once again at the weekend, when all of us are taking a breather (hopefully) from the week, when we can relax and forget about the weekly chores.
But of course the work on ourselves never takes a break, or at least I believe it should not be a one day kind of activity but should be a life long endeavour. And with that in mind, have you done any work on yourself? Have you illuminated any dark corners of your being where perhaps you have not looked for a while? Have you dusted off any old diaries you may have started a few years back but then abandoned? Have you tried something new this week, to get the cobwebs cleared of your creativity?
One thing my clients often tell me is they are not creative. And when I ask them what they mean, they inevitably think of painting, to them that is art, that is being creative. And it takes a great deal of time on my part to explore with them that creativity can be a great many things: it could be cooking without a recipe, it can mean finding a new combination of moves in an Xbox game, it could be giving life the the book you read by imagining how the characters may look like. The only thing that limits us, is our own worry that it will not be perfect, or that the internal image will not match the external final produt. But then again, as a human being, have you turned out how you thought you may be when you were a child? Or better yet, did you turn out how your parents were hoping you were? So who's expectation are you trying to live up to, yours or theirs or society's? When are you ready to light up the magnificent you? When are you ready to let loose your imagination and see what it may bring in the future? Are you ready to get passed your limits into a new reality?
Are you ready to light up the candle with light alone?
