Sometimes I feel stuck, in a rut, like I should be doing better/more/different things creatively. Sometimes I come across mean things written about me and how much I stink as a creative person. I can think that I’m not “enough”… and you guys know that is no way to live life or be thinking!!
Does this happen to you? I am betting I’m not alone and let me just say I am so sick of believing all the bad. When someone knocks on my door I assume it is to sell me something or for nefarious reasons. If someone tells me they need to talk to me I assume I’m in trouble somehow or have messed something up. WHY?! This is such a negative habit I have – I want to work on it big time.
A few weeks ago I saw this on the wall at my aunt’s house.
It was made by my great grandmother. It inspired me so much, and when I just stumbled across these photos that I snapped of it I was super excited. Not just about remembering to post the photos and talk about how cool this piece is, but that creatively the only thing that matters is me + enjoyment.
All I need to do, is to create things I like, to enjoy the process, and to focus on the amazing positive energy in the creative world. There are so many wonderful people out there doing incredible things – and I can just do my thing and be a part of that. Oh I can do my best, and try hard because that’s just who I am. But I don’t have to worry or wonder because end of the day, and as Taylor Swift says… haters gonna hate and the fakers gonna fake. I can just shake, shake, shake it off.
I have so many ideas in my head, so many things I want to share and write and show you all. I guess bottom line, is that I want to say thank you. For reading this blog, for the encouraging and kind comments you always leave, and for giving me positive feedback. I know I’ll never get to 100% of the things I want to make or see or do – but I can have fun on the journey. And I’m grateful you’re coming along for the ride.
I have some very cool things brewing for this space in 2015, and I can’t wait to share more. Right now though I’m sick as can be (and still have kiddo with pneumonia…) and need to go plan today’s girl scout meeting that starts in a few hours soo….
off I go.
