Eclipses – ahead and behind

I am taking the time to look back and forward on this special day:

August 21, 2017

What do you really want to change:

I want to change my relationship with value.

I want to omit the feeling that my storytelling makes no difference in the world and therefore why do it?

Again – change my ‘value’

I want to finish my novel – take the time to write and not judge whether it has the capability to reach people.

Omit – the ‘not going to be recognized’ mentality that has persisted in my filmmaker career.

Is it ego? Or is it a drive for my art to be ‘seen’?

I want to challenge myself to take the next leap to explore living in Europe.

I want to change my relationship with the world, work, lifestyle.

I want to feel valued both professionally and personally.

I feel limited in Canada from exploring who I am as a creative, experienced professional as well as an adult.

Based on Experience … but that doesn’t have to be so elsewhere… right?

How do you really want your life to be?

In a perfect world I would live in different places in the world as a writer of novels and have friends come stay and create in their own right. I would love to have a partner who is a creative and we could travel and live and create.

I have always believed I am meant to be with a professional music person, a producer? A writer of music? Not a musician per say… who performs.

Music has always been a driving force for me – not in its own right – but as a muse for my creativity. Perhaps I will find my creative partner to share adventures with?

If not, I would still be happy and fulfilled to have creative friends visit and create in my space.

I want to make enough money to live and work, travel and save for retirement- to not ‘survive’ or worry about what will happen to me.

I want to make a difference.

What can you improve?

I can improve my clearing of things – to get unstuck and open up space.

Physical space – apartment.

Long term:

I want to feel I have fulfilled my destiny.

Currently – I feel that I have not.
