I was always told as a child that art and creativity will get you nowhere, this was always followed with a lecture about choosing something more practical and profitable for a career. I remember going back to my parents and with the idea of being a lawyer, I was told I was too dumb for that and all the other things on my career list. My heart was crushed and yet again the light of opportunity was turned off in my life.
With no-one batting for my team a career never formed, I was never taught to dream big and aim high. It has been unfortunate that I was taught to have very little faith in myself and my ability to achieve anything. This way of thinking has led to a lot of negativity and sadness in my life. I have had to work very hard to persuade myself that I am worth more.
It’s time I started letting go and living!
