Yes. Creativity is a resistance practice. We resist all social constructs that keep us silent. We resist the inner critic that warns us that we aren’t good enough. We resist the barriers of time and cost. Instead we remember our truth, that we are enough, that we create because we have to. Are you part of this Resistance? Of course you are!
I can shake off everything if I write. My sorrows disappear, my courage is reborn. Anne Frank
As I shared, I experienced a trauma setback. So what did I do? Along with a friend, I went to Union Square in San Francisco where I live. They were having an outdoor dance party. I danced “as if no one were watching”. It worked. Dancing for me is as writing for Anne Frank.
What about you? If you feel hurt or even broken, what is in your tool kit?
