Are You Going To Show Up and Do Your Part?

I just finished watching this amazing talk by Elizabeth Gilbert (Eat, Pray, Love)  on TED.  I just discovered TED.. Wow.

Anyway.  This talk.  It is amazing, about giving yourself some space to create, to do the thing you do, to free yourself from the pain and the torture of working on that which you love.  Your Thing.  Whatever that thing is.

I loved watching this.  Something shifted for me while I listened.  This has been a tough week for me.  Trying to connect with my passion and what it is I want to share with the world.  Feeling disconnected and it has been hard.  I have been hard on myself.  But, I can see that my problem was that I didn’t show up and do my part.  What she is talking about here makes so much sense to me. Instead of doing MY thing, I have been hiding out feeling scared and I stopped doing what it is I do.

And, I know that for most everyone out there reading this blog.. you’ve done this to.   Just stopped and gotten scared and stopped working.  Maybe you are doing it right NOW.  Suffering.  But, what there is to do is just show up and do your part.

Dear sweet Elizabeth here talks about how to do that.  It’s long (almost 20 minutes).  But, please, take the time to watch, to nurture yourself.  This is so beautifully said and her authenticity.. WOW!

Here it is:

Now, go have an awesome, inspiring, creative weekend.

Do your thing. Show up and do your part.  Let genius catch you.
