Making a mess

As a child it was always ‘don’t do that, it will make a mess’. This creates the habit of not letting go and restricting our creativity.

It’s taken me a lot of my life to realise, the best things come from making a mess and freeing ourselves.

I spent today in my art studio making a mess, some went wrong and ended up even better.

Enjoy making a mess whatever it is it can always be cleaned up and the freedom of letting go allows us to create our best.


‘Serendipity’ by Philip Dodson

“Serendipity means a “fortunate happenstance” or “pleasant surprise”. The term was coined by Horace Walpole in 1754. In a letter he wrote to a friend, Walpole explained an unexpected discovery he had made by reference to a Persian fairy tale, The Three Princes of Serendip.” thanks, Wikipedia.

If you never show up in what you are doing each day, if you never share your ideas, never create any ‘art’, if you bend to be shaped by others and are not true to yourself, if you do not speak up, if you do not connect, if…..

Then there will not be many ‘fortunate happenstances’ or ‘pleasant surprises’.

Just keep sharing, creating, connecting and making a difference.

‘Chance’ opportunities rarely happen by chance.
