I've always been Multi-Passionate and the journeys I've enjoyed because of it has been tremendous. The importance of the consistency was to always be myself, my passions already knew how to get along!"
There is an amazing story that we all have to tell. A story of vast and subtle differences, but a story worth telling.
I struggled with my story for a number of years, trying to figure out where I fit in and I never did. being someone that is a multi-talented, I've experienced life linearly and parallel. I discovered that this way of being, didn't sit well with the professional industry. As the view it as unstable.
For many years I struggled through a this or that environment where life was made to be seen as a simple choice.
I've always had a way to question what should be for my life, I ditched the ‘this or that' for the mindset of “This & That!" It is possible to be skilled and operate in multiple gifts across different genera's that can work in tandem or singularly. When I was younger, I thought other people could give me wisdom. Now I'm a little older and I know wisdom is something we individually earn.
When others give us the answer, we cheat ourselves. The answer belongs to them and not us. We possibly can achieve the desired outcome but it becomes a dependence, a need to be affirmed, not insight. We begin to depend on the insight and advice of others. Just like believing and depending on someone to tell it is OK to operate in you multi-potential.
You don't have to turn each talent into a full on business, allow you gifts the ebb and flow to support one another and support you in who you are, completely! Having the ability to do more and be more is not a disability, it is a SUPERPOWER! Let's face it in this day and age of the Splash Career and hybrid portfolios, Creatives and Multi-Potential offer more because of their ability to adapt and knack for fast learning.
Despite the flashes of insecurity, self-doubt, and shiny object syndrome. You have to admit it's awesome to have a life filled with a variety of fulfilling opportunities and projects that support a range of skills that feeds your passion. You will never find fulfillment in being less than who you are!
