Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to become a mould breaker.
This is no simple task. Since I embarked on this mission I have uncovered three levels of mould breaking:
Level One: If a person doesn’t fit the mould, does the problem lie with the person, or the mould?
Our society is constructed in such a way that we are rewarded for fitting in, even while we are told to stand out. But moulds are for playdough, not people. So we must chip away at the moulds that have been set up to contain us, little by little until they are broken for good and we are good and free. This is the original goal of this blog, which you can read more about in my inaugural post “On Breaking Moulds.”
Level Two: What happens if, in the process of breaking moulds, you yourself get broken?
Several years ago due to a major life-altering crisis, my focus on this blog shifted from breaking moulds as described above, to rebuilding out of my own brokenness.
Level Three: Once you release yourself from the moulds that have shaped you, what is left?
Being a mould breaker requires courage, letting go of the security of the mould. Transformational mould breaking is a process of breaking free of the moulds, masks and filters that keep you safe, and paving the way for true authenticity, to become who you are truly meant to be.
My name is Janelle, and this blog is about my adventures in mould breaking. This mission has not been easy, and it has not been safe. But so far, it has been worth it.
They are my adventures but they can also be yours. If you have a mould breaking story you’d like to share in this space, get in touch!
