The Moment of Break True
The year was 1999, that was my moment of ‘Break True’. The signs should have been obvious, or perhaps they were, but I simply didn’t know what else to do back then. Fate has a funny way of making sure you tune into your calling. I was burning out fast and in the end I had to stop.
Experts and friends were able to point towards my creative streak which I had largely denied. Change was forced upon me as I no longer had a desire to persist with teaching teenagers the disciplines of Maths and Science.
I had a very long way to go to uncover and develop my artistic expression and meanwhile I had to quickly find alternative employment to make ends meet.
This was the most opportune moment. It was time to take a really good look at the young woman staring back at me in the mirror. Who would she be if she could say what she really thought? What did she really believe about the world? Would she be brave enough to let others see that side that wanted to explore the world without so much fear?
One morning while the house was quiet and empty I dared myself to discover that very woman. A blank canvas starred back at me. After some very quick sketches I hesitated no further. Soon she emerged. I was stunned because something amazing had indeed come forth. ‘Break True’ boldly stated her intentions through the blue and menacing swirls. Now at least I had a glimpse of what lay within, a ‘great certainty’ as Gandhi once described it, all I had to do was ‘hitch my wagon to it’.
My original painting, ‘Break True’ has been claimed by another daring woman who has also made a commitment to change and transformation.
In recent times I am noticing how so many more people are making these transformations, stepping into their power and shining their light on every authentic part of themselves.
This is why I now present to you ‘Break True’ as a limited edition giclee print.
I remain committed to my authentic path of creative expression and well-being and hope to inspire many others with my art and writing and reflexology therapy.
Have you found your true calling or what was your moment of breaking ‘true’?
