You know when you do something and things click into place and suddenly you feel like you, 100%?
This happened to me today.
Years ago I designed some little children’s characters. They were truly an extension of me. I loved them. I cared for them. Sometimes I even spoke to them.
So what did I do with them? I did what any self-respecting aspiring creative would do; I stored them away in a folder and ignored them.
I’m not sure how successful I was at doing this – my subconscious knew they were there. Ignoring them was energy-sapping.
But today I did something mind-blowing:
I took my little friends to a designer who scanned them in to his computer and started adjusting colours and contrast and tones on screen so that they came alive in front of me.
I sat behind him, with a massive grin on my face. (Thinking: This is who I am! This is who I am! This is who I am!).
For years I have wanted to be more creative.
For years I have wanted to express the real me.
For years I have wanted to start making money from using my imagination.
Today I took the first step towards making these dreams come true.
MAJOR CELEBRATION TIME!
