I’m still reading Kim Gordon’s Girl in a Band, and I’m continuing to be struck by how Kim didn’t really see herself as a musician, yet she made this amazing career from her time as a bassist in Sonic Youth. Even though she says she didn’t really have any musical training or talent, what I’m noticing by her story is that she did have courage and authenticity. She just went for it, throwing her entire being into making music and art, not worried about what others were going to say or think. It made me reflect on what is truly possible when we live with courage and stay true to our heart’s desires.
For today’s prompt, write about what you would do if you had the courage to just go for it and live out your heart’s desires.
