Today, I have something special to share with you. A video. A piece of visual evidence of me shedding yet another layer that’s been hiding my true self.
At first, I thought I was just going to film an update for you since I haven’t been so present online in the last many months. But the more I thought about it, filming this video is more of a breakthrough. It’s me taking another step in my journey to let go of control in my life and to let the real me shine through.
So, here is me. The real me. Hello! <3

I don’t normally comment much, but just had to write and congratulate you on the courageous thing you have done in making this video! I know you are on the right track – and it’s fabulous that you are doing this work of finding and “being” the “real you” at a young age. After decades of being a career coach – and then a life and spiritual coach – while doing the work on myself, I am approaching my 73rd year and am still working on it, and life never ceases to amaze me. I can promise you that it is a wonderful, if sometimes challenging, journey and worth every minute of it.
Personally, I would much rather listen to and read the sharings of someone who is working on being authentic than all of the mainstream hype (however well intended) on branding yourself and marketing, marketing, marketing It is all beginning to sound much the same, and often the “heart” gets lost.
So this video has turned me into a fan and supporter of sorts. Am looking forward to hearing more and seeing what evolves!
God bless you for your courage, sharing of your self and creative gifts. What a lovely, strong young woman you are, As an artist in her sixties, a late bloomer in trusting this creative side of myself, I can tell you that you are WAY ahead of the majority of people who seem to have it all together and are not near as authentic as you. Stay the course!

Thank you for sharing your heart, honey.
You’re gorgeous! Thanks for sharing.
Awesome! I left my art business because everything was controlling me. All the marketing and the work was not making me happy. I was so concerned with selling. It took all the joy out of my life. Good for you.

Kristal, You are very brave and wise to follow your heart and expand your life. Thank you so much for sharing!
Liz Cooper says
Good for you! We can only control what we do or say. The rest is open to chance. Continue to grow and change, be the bold and brave you that you are!
Kristal, you are an inspiration to me, keep on going girl. I enjoy your authenticity for some time now and now you are being more authentic. That is rare in this time of more, more and more.
Robin Anderson says
Wonderful video, totally connected with what you are saying, am so happy for you moving thru into the next level………as we each do this I know we are drawing each other up too………thanks for sharing more of the real you
WOW I’m so glad I watched this. Thank you for being so open and honest. Can I say even though I don’t know you, I feel so proud of you for taking this scary step. I can relate especially about being somewhat of a perfectionist and I feel showing your true self and being in the discomfort takes great courage. I look forward to more.
Steve Donovan says
I want to congratulate you on your bravery in letting go and continuing on your journey of discovery. I think what you are doing is wonderful. It inspires me.
I never leave comments like this but having taken your e course on art journaling (which I loved)I’ve become used to watching your videos which are friendly, professional and informative. This time though, I could see your soul peeping through. You’re right to let the real Kristal shine through….it was joyful to watch. Love and blessings honey.
