Hello Creative Friends,
In this episode we talk about our propensity (and when I say "our" I mean YOU, ME, EVERYONE's) to create the things we purport to deeply dislike in the world. AKA "Hate."
Hate is an overused word, but I think in this context it's good to talk about. I tell a few stories about how I've witnessed this play out in my own life (yup, steps down off the pedestal over here, I'm guilty of this all the time.) We all are guilty of it.
Art isn't just creating beautiful stuff. Art is a model for creating the coolest artwork of all... Our Lives. We don't need to do anything with the stories in this episode either. Just the knowledge that we're all wired to make what we don't want, can be incredibly powerful in reversing that trend when it comes up in the future.
This episode was sponsored by The HeART School:
Art isn't what we MAKE. The Art is YOU. Join

Welcome to Secret Sauce, a podcast about the secret ingredients in life and work, hosted by Becca Borrelli.
Secret Sauce explores artistry as a helpful framework for inspiring meaning and understanding in our everyday lives.

She spends most of her time designing adult coloring books, interactive murals, and speaking to organizations about mindfulness, meditation and the benefits of art-making. Clients include Visa, Dell Children’s Hospital, Austin Independent School District, University Hospital- Cleveland, the Austin Downtown Alliance and the Anti-Defamation League.
Becca is most inspired by the invisible connections between all things. Her work aims to be a playful, bright, and hopeful interpretation of the world's whimsical and magical sides.
