171/365 – Feelings are Important.
I consider myself a shy person. The kind of person who doesn’t show up at parties, who don’t take the lead in a conversation, who likes to follow more than lead. Shyness is often a way to protect our feelings and avoid vulnerability.
I find being able to feel vulnerable, and being comfortable with it, very relevant to creativity in general and my creative work. Vulnerability helps you feel deeply and understand your limits. It helps open up to possibilities we don’t know yet and discover new terriotories and feelings.
We often underestimate our feelings involvement in what we are doing while we should not only keep them into consideration but also keep them at the core of what we do: they show the real “us” to yourself and, most importantly, others.
