Hi everyone, Well I haven’t written for sometime mainly because I have been doing some ‘reframing work’.. ‘as a comedian? I hear some of you say’ So what do I mean?…
Well any fine artist will tell you that a great picture needs a great frame, a cheap or damaged frame can ruin a fabulous piece of artwork, some would go as far as to say that the frame is also a piece of great artwork in itself. Some frames are made by gifted craftsmen and designed specifically for the painting, maybe they are made from fine gold, embossed and jewelled.
The frame completes priceless beauty and presents the painting to the world. In life you are the work of fine art, and the inner you shows how you present yourself to the world.
I was dashing home in the car from performing at a successful comedy festival in the Yorkshire dales, I stopped to look at the beautiful nature around and the peaceful equilibrium that it resonated and life worries started to ‘kick-off’ in my head! I knew I needed some sanctuary ‘picture reframing time’. My life frame was depicting my frenetic lifestyle, I needed an upgrade!
As many creative people, I must confess I find certain area’s of my life are disorganised like the piles of paperwork and notebooks around the house, not to mention my laptop which was a mad myriad of files, documents and words all over the place… I could go on but you know what I mean… Plus I had some ‘mind-litter’ to get rid of… These are past words, comments, negative thoughts, emotions and unresloved issues that can blight our confidence and ability to reach our full potential and goals, all this inner and outer stuff needs reframing and sorting. TIMEOUT! And I don’t mean the magazine.
The bottom line is all this ‘stuff’ is seen as an unworthy frame or no frame, and the artwork of the beauty of ‘you’ is diminished. Take time to de-clutter, reframe your thinking and re-present the new and improved YOU. Only you can do this, just work on the areas you know need to be tidyed up and re-hung and you will reap rewards.
It is time consuming, sorry. Hard to face in some areas but amazing that people can and will actually see the hard work you’ve done on the inside on the outside. As inner you gets tidy, amazing how it makes you want to tidy up your wardrobe, garden or flat. Result! You won’t sound stressed, frantic, anxious, fearful whatever, because like looking at that beautiful painting in the art gallery of say a Monet… Your inner peace frames the painting of the outside you beautifully and perfectly. 🙂
Reframe, realign and be all of you.
