Extraordinarily You

Sometimes we can be our worst critics,
an enemy that interrupts the flow of our own freedom to create,
the freedom to be the artist we are
on the inside.

What may look like "junk" never is "junk."

It's an opportunity to dig deeper into our hearts
to find meaning, to look for something different,
to find something else . . .
an idea, a technique, an image,
a color, a word . . .

that lights the fire of imagination to
think beyond where we stand.

That's how magic is born.
That's where junk turns into something extraordinary,
something unique,
something wonderfully "you."

The next time you think you made junk,
stop, drop and roll into something extraordinarily "you."
