When I face hardships in life that leave me hurt and frustrated I move.
Recently I find myself searching the face of God through my art. I am pushing myself to try new things and learn how to use what stands out in my environment as a conscious check-in to what I am feeling on the inside. It’s like when someone points out a red car and now you can’t stop seeing red cars. I challenged myself to find art that captured my inner emotions.
Here is this week’s video!
Here’s why I move:
Today in our society, there is a stigma associated with expressing one’s thoughts and opinions. As an Art & Dance Movement Therapist, I firmly believe that I was created to help people express themselves freely using their spirit, soul, and body. I became an Art & Dance/Movement Therapist because they are the two forms of communication I use to express myself to others and with God. There are times that I am unable to verbalize what it is that I am feeling inside of me. Whether it be happiness, sorrow, joy, anger, etc. It is easier for me to show people with colors and movement the sensations taking over my body. I firmly believe that everyone in this world is gifted and talented! It’s a matter of accessing those skills/abilities and sharing your thoughts/opinions freely with the world. I hope that I have been able to inspire you to explore within yourself and have the courage to express yourself boldly!
