LEAVING HOME :: for me, part of being a creative has been connected to exploring my freedom. years ago, chosing to leave home was a big one for me. i was attached to living there but mostly i was scared of losing so many things. but i felt i needed to leave to truly find myself. as cliché as it may sound, it is true. i needed to get away from the social structure i lived in to find what is important for ME and not make it important because someone told me it should be that way.
i lived many places after i left, and have changed quite a lot. now i know that being in a smaller, calmer place is good for my soul. a place where Nature is more accessible and I can, on any given day, commune with the trees, the river or the ocean waves.
i just spent 4 days in the Mexico City and my entire self was craving Nature: big trees, palm trees, the stars, the Ocean or a river. i was not able to sleep well while i was in Mexico and energetically i started feeling a little off. but i love my friends and family there, so it is hard to leave. living far from Mexico City has been painful, because there are a lot of people I love deeply there and it hurts not to be close. but at the same time, it has been the best decision i have made for my growth and health on a physical, emotional, mental, energetic and spiritual level, and also for my work. although i can definitely find inspiration in a beautiful city, there is also a lot of noise (actual physical noise, as well as energetic noise). being close to Nature allows me to be more in touch with myself and my intuition, has allowed my creativity to flow more and has helped my imagination to fly higher.
