This story is about creative mommies but change the players and the message still fits. It could be employees stretched to the max or full-time care-givers. Change the outlet and the message is the same. Swap out creative pursuits for physical or spiritual outlets. Put the the sheen back on your life.
You may see many messages in this video. I see women wrestling with being themselves. I see people battling with their Super Egos. The struggle between what they want to do and what they feel they should do is torturous. One of the artist's young daughters is asked, "Is your mommy an artist?" She thinks for a while, then answers, "She used to be."
The video is well worth the ten minutes it will take you to watch. The imagery of the final scene at 9:40 is spot on. The message is clear. It is not easy to make the time for yourself. But everyone needs the time to be themselves.
