Creative Expression

November 24, 2018

One of several fascinating things I’ve discovered here in Santa Fe... I’m meeting people who are just so creative and they have several outlets of creativity! 

 

The one who is a writer/ yoga instructor, the one that loves to bake and runs his own food tour company, the one that works on documenting historical buildings and also writes for a magazine, the one who paints and writes his own music... 

 

Honestly I find myself envious! First that these individuals have such a knowing sense of themselves, of what they love to create and how they enjoy expressing themselves.  For so long I just went to work and really thought that was enough. I didn’t have the energy for creating anything else. It makes me sad! So now that I’m here I’m searching for my own creative “voice.”  Not so easy when I’ve  never stopped before to think about what really moves me! But that’s what these individuals are now inspiring in me.. to find my way to my own form of self expression, what is it for me.... what can I create, what do I love? 

 

The second thing I find fascinating is how “normal” it is for a lot of people here in Santa Fe to have more than one “job.”

The vegan baker who works part time as a server, the organizer who also runs reservations for a B&B, and the website consultant who works retail. 

 

I’m still pinching myself how fortunate I feel to be here and then I’m also kicking myself cuz it’s really been a challenge....losing and finding myself, trusting then doubting myself, feeling joy and then feeling hurt....

The roller coaster of life I suppose. I just gotta remind myself to be patient, to keep

believing, to know deep in my heart it’s all working out...
