I am in love with #ActivistCardsByChava, but I am also struggling. The inner critic in me is asking, “how could I have ever thought I have the artistic or creative spirit to make my project work? Do I really believe I can and will create 100 Activist Cards in 100 days?” The good news is in my response, “ACTUALLY, I am so full of ideas and I am willing to play too. And if I run out of ideas, I have a tribe of activists to reach out to who I am sure will share their ideas” I really do believe that some of the days for my #The100DayProject will soar and some may soar less, but inspire me to rethink what I am doing or perhaps to simply keep playing until I get it right. I am good with that!

This internal conversation lead me listen to one of my favorite new authors when I went on my evening walk. In her talk and book, Danielle Krysa’s made me reflect on the sabotager that sometimes keeps me from thriving in my creative journey.  In her book, YOUR INNER CRITIC IS A BIG JERK And Other Truths About Being Creative, she invites us to explore how the jerk has invaded your life and then to reframe the jerk’s role. One FABULOUS idea she had was to name the jerk. Perhaps if the jerk has a name, I can become friends with him or her.

 

Day 2 - Believe and DoFortunately, I allowed my inner critic to question me which ultimately allowed me to delightedly answer her by finishing Day 2’s Activist Card and then sharing it with you.

Now if only I could figure out what to call the jerk. I am working on it, but I am open to names. Feel free to leave me a comment if you have a thought.

In the meantime, I am loving this project and that it is inspiring me to at least take a few minutes each day to be creative.

With love, light, and creativity,
Chava
