"Authenticity is the daily practice of letting go who we think we are supposed to be and embracing who we are" - Brene Brown
What is Artistic Authenticity
Artistic Authenticity is about the process of opening up and allowing ourselves to be spilled into some form of creativity. It is not about getting "atta boys". It is deeper than that. It is about having the courage to be you in the world. Authenticity takes courage. It is risk taking, It doesn't behave according to popular opinion. It doesn't try to shock others. It doesn't try. It is like a caged tiger pacing in its cage, waiting for the door to be opened so that it can run free. Unlike the tiger, the door to your authenticity can olnly be opened by you. If your door is always open, congratulations!!! If not, and you want to be authentic, you must open the door. The door is not locked. It is simply closed.
Why is my door closed?
I struggle a lot with artistic authenticity. I battle many obstacles before I even move...
