Club Revoluton has yet again taken me on a trip down memory lane. I have previously written about how these workshops have been a cathartic experience, but the latest workshop made me rethink about how much I have had to prove myself as a creative throughout my life.
It has also made me realise how much I have grown to respect myself and my art and most importantly, how much I have come to appreciate what I do. During the workshop, I actually wrote a piece of writing that encompasses all of this:
“I feel kinda free. I feel like my history led me to be who I want to be. I feel like I am wearing an armour that lets me push through every wind wall and every rain storm. I remember not knowing who I was before, but still being me, and now I know who I am – I am hardworking, and I am strong, and I am smart and creative. So yeah, I feel kinda free.
Free to be myself, and experience life without being bound by the shackles of retail and shifting between waking up at 6 am or leaving work at 10pm in the night. I feel like I reclaimed my life and I found different ways to thrive in, and be myself, and experience life.
I feel like I can lay down in bed at night, and not have to worry about a random stranger being rude to me because of coffee beans, or a teacher assessing me and telling me that “it just wasn’t good enough”. I feel like I am at a place in which I know myself, I know who I am and who I want to be.”
So join Club Revoluton if you want to work on yourself and on your craft!
