Over the next few weeks, we’re revisiting some of our favourite episodes related to creativity and creative self-care. We thought there’d be no better place to start then with Amy’s own personal journey of creative rediscovery.
Original Episode Description:
Last summer, I hit a breaking point. I had stifled my creativity out of fear for so long that I firmly believe I was “not a creative person”. Until it began bubbling up out of me in the most unexpected of ways – anxiety, mood swings, tears randomly bursting out of my face at the oddest of times. I couldn’t keep it locked away any more.
At the time, I didn’t even know what “it” was – only that I was really struggling. I was disconnected, lost, unsure of where to go with my business and how to “fix” whatever it was that felt broken inside me.
One conversation changed everything for me, and in this episode I share what was said that made me really evaluate my beliefs that I “wasn’t creative”, and how that began a beautiful, painful, and transformative quest to finding myself and my voice as a creative.
