I have this debate running constantly in my mind when I write my posts. Am I creating content which is unique ? Is it interesting ? Is it worthy enough for a mention etc. Some topics require a lot of research and understanding while some come easily to me.
Whenever I am confused and find myself in doubt I re visit an advice given to me by my mentor ,
“Most things have been done but they have not yet been done by you. So Just do it .Once you put your own expression and passion behind an idea, that idea becomes yours.”
Another motivating statement she made to me is,
“If it’s authentic enough believe me, it will feel original ”
This gives me the energy to keep writing and keep creating new and exciting content. And the best part is that this advice comes handy not only in writing but in every aspect of creative living.
For instance , when I design and handmake jewellery I know that I am not the only person making it , but the heart and soul that I put into it makes it unique and hence authentic and original. Same principle applies to writing . I am sure someone someday must have written or said this to someone at some point in time. But the fact that I am sharing this with you now, it becomes mine . Once you become mindful to yourself ,you connect with yourself and your expressions takes the shape of you .
All I want to say is , explore and conquer the hidden treasures in yourself and not worry about it’s originality.
Happiness and sunshine
