This is a brilliant talk by Sarah Kay where she describes the power and relevance of poetry in today’s world.
I love her three steps on her journey 1) I can. 2) I will. 3) Infusing the work you are doing with the specific things that make you You.
I think these steps are true of whatever creative calling stirs your soul. Believing in yourself opens the door. Then, a solid dose of commitment keeps you moving. Finally, you learn to stand up and be yourself. Then, you do it all over again.
