Yay Anamika! So great to have you with us!
Heartistry is a word I am attracted to because to me it reflects what MATTERS to us, that we’d like to express into the we-spaces we’re a part of. Different from “artistry” only in the sense that a lot of people (myself included) have more resistance to identifying as an artist than as a Heartist. (Maybe because it is a new concept that we’re getting to define? I love that!)
For me the path to “self-esteem” was frought also with lots of preaching and put downs.
It’s why I also focus more on calm confidence, presence, and hearty engagement. When I’m in one of those states of being, it feels really natural to feel the Value in me… and in We.
Esteem is an energy I feel is a shared one… we esteem each other and each of our self’s is included in that. Like a shared pool of mutual appreciation and gratitude.
Again, welcome! Feel free to start a new topic with any aspect of this you’d like to explore together!
