If you can't fly then run, if you can't run then walk,
if you can't walk then crawl, but whatever you do,
you have to keep moving forward.
Martin Luther King Jr.
Tonight I sit in a hallway, waiting for my daughter to finish her ballet lesson. I am always struck with awe as I watch and listen to the beauty of the creativity and art that is being created in that ballet studio. Not only is it beautiful, but it is strong, confident and knows itself. The art is transformative, not only to its audience, but also to its participants. You can’t but notice the smiles, energy, and strength the children pour into their artwork.
This artistic strength draws my attention to my clients. Those suffering with self-doubt, fear, sadness and worry. Studies show that engagement with arts, creativity, and imagination help combat negative symptoms of anxiety, fatigue and depression. It helps remind us of our truths, our strengths, and our beauty. Artistic expression is a powerful tool in healing.
Try it today.
The key is to enjoy the experience, never judging the quality of the work. The value lies in the meaningfulness and depth of the process. Be free to express yourself in any imaginative manner, allowing yourself some time without criticism to begin to re-acquaint you with your true strength and beauty once again.
