Unblock Your Pipe

“Sometimes you’ve got to let everything go – purge yourself. If you are unhappy with anything . . . whatever is bringing you down, get rid of it. Because you’ll find that when you’re free, your true creativity, your true self comes out.” – Tina Turner

I really love this quote. It’s so true and it’s so simple, but it’s another one of those that you just lose sight of. So often we get blocked up by what makes us unhappy and we cannot be free. It can be so many things – things we dislike about ourselves or others, preconceived notions, other stuff we just can’t seem to eliminate. But those things are totally blocking our creativity. If you can’t get past the things you dislike about yourself, can you do LOs about yourself?? Can you write blog posts about yourself. Can you be truly free in your art if you’re all blocked up? If you can’t get past preconceived notions about what you can or can’t do, will you even attempt to do something you haven’t done before??

So…let’s let it go. Purge it. Take a few minutes and think about the things that are “blocking your pipe”.  What are you believing or holding on to that is just getting in your way? Maybe write them down, ball it up and literally throw it away. Don’t let what’s inside of you keep what’s inside of you from getting out!
