It is not for you to judge how your expression is received in the world.⁠

It is not for you to stifle that which wants expansion through you.⁠

If the words are at your lips, speak them.⁠

If the song is in your heart, sing it.⁠

If the vision is at your fingertips, paint it.⁠

The creative expression that flows through you is a unique gift.⁠

Allow the essence of you to move through all that you do.⁠

Keep your tender heart open.⁠

Risk the pain of rejection, judgement and criticism.⁠

For you can not know how your life touches upon another⁠.

Nor the ripple effect that comes from simply being who you are.⁠
