Get motivated, figure out how you want to shift and #getyourshifttogether with Tara Grieb.
Clarissa Castillo Ramsey - Painting Your Path, Again and Again
Clarissa shares this: As a small child, I had two interests: I wanted to be an artist, and I wanted to take care of people. I had an active imagination. I loved painting, drawing, and sharing my work with others. It brought such joy and bliss. I grew up in a household of doctors who were very practical and protective. I did not get the encouragement to dive deep into art and was told that I’d be rich and famous after I died! I remember feeling like I wasn’t capable of making “right” decisions. As an adult I know my parents were looking out for my best interest. Life as an artist just didn’t seem stable or practical.
I also was drawn to becoming friends with children who were on the outskirts and alone. As one of the few Filipino children at my pre-school, I felt different. My dark hair and skin was a contrast to the other children around me. I didn’t want others to feel like I did. I would always befriend the new kids in town. I didn’t want them to feel left out. I remember walking up to a new girl in my ballet class from Canada and invited her to join me and my group of friends. Reaching out was something I always did. I became the “go to” friend who would listen, reassure, encourage, and just be with whatever situation was going on. I found I had a knack for making people feel welcomed.
Clarissa is a total GEM. Find her book Paint Your Path on Amazon.
