Jeanne Carbonetti – A Simple Reflection on Flow

Whenever you need to honor the flow of the creative process that has brought you to the moment you’re in – even if it happens to be a difficult place just then – imagine this: You are standing next to a beautiful, powerful painting that you have created.  You are proud of this painting.  It is you.  

A young artist, quite self-critical, comes to you in admiration and asks, “How did you get to this place?”  You breathe deeply, smile, and share the secret.  “By trusting myself,” you answer simply.  And the young artist is filled with hope, ready to start again.
