Do what you must in order to BREATHE

Anna Shelley

Every now and then, when the panic sets in, I remind myself to breathe.

And yet, in that stillness that I so desire and require, I must create.

I literally have to force myself to go to bed before midnight because I’m quite sure I’d be up until sunrise writing and painting and musicing. All night long.

Every now and then, when I wonder why I can’t just be happy being a mum to my little kid and just enjoy these moments, the panic sets in.

And yet, it’s not the stillness I always desire and require. It’s the creation. The output. The buzz and the release of getting out of me and into the world.

As I type this, I am in the middle of writing a fiction novel, feeling into my next 2 albums, and constantly creating more visuals for more video clips as I am not able to record anything right now.

Every now and then, when I wonder what the hell is wrong with me, I tune within.

I do what I must in order to breathe. And do you know what that is? Creating stuff. Getting it out of my body and into the world. I have no choice. It’s the only thing that works. It’s the ONLY thing that I can do in order to BREATHE.

So while I’m just over here breathing, check out a new video clip to March from my album, Reflections & Invocations.

This is so vital: Do what you must, in order to breathe.
