Episode 83

Why a Red Pen?

 

Why am I using a red pen? Wouldn’t a green pen be nicer?

Writing a book – indeed any creative pursuit or the making of something that didn’t exist before – is about doing, creating, building, action.

But to come to its full glory, it also needs nurturing and gentleness and love.

If we have made something, created something, if we have planted a seed, then we need to love it and care for it and look after it.

We don’t want to destroy it, especially when it is little.

It needs time to grow. It needs space to evolve. It needs lifting up.

All things need balance to become.

In this episode of the podcast, I’m sharing a very powerful question you can ask yourself when you are in the process of creation. To question (not doubt, or second guess) the energy behind your action, and to think about the balance you are bringing to your work.

And to have a new reference point for yourself – should I be using a red pen here, or would a green pen be better?

My Mission

Fiona Redding

Fiona Redding

Host

My mission in life is to share everything I have learned – and am continuing to learn – about turning my own life around and to really help you understand that happiness is to be found in the overcoming of obstacles and challenges in your life, and not in the absence of them.  To achieve your potential in life, you need to become your potential.  And for that to be, you need to understand yourself, and learn how to harness your strengths and overcome your weaknesses.   You have the power within you to create whatever reality you choose, and I am here to help you know that if you don’t like what you are experiencing, then you can absolutely change that.   But you do have to choose, believe, and be open to all possibilities, and to keep showing up every day, even when it feels really hard. Because if you do what is easy, your life will be hard.  But if you do what is hard, your life will be easy.
