I know it’s not always easy – but today I want to encourage you to do something brave. It doesn’t have to be big or grand, fancy or impressive. Do something (creatively) brave that scares you… and see how ok it will be.
It is so hard to step outside of that known zone, that comfortable area, but trust me. It’s worth it. I mean really, what’s the worst thing that can happen? A card is ugly? A scrapbook layout ruined? A piece of paper becomes garbage? Taking a creative leap of faith to try something new – big or small – is so rewarding.
The consequences of being creatively brave aren’t so dire.
I’ve learned that the success or failure really isn’t the point, and to be honest judging that isn’t a priority. It is the stepping outside the comfort zone, outside where I’m sure of myself and the DOING that is the reward in and of itself.
Finding that there’s more that I am capable of, seeing that something isn’t as scary as I thought, or simply that it’s worth it – these are my rewards. Once upon a time making my blog public was a huge leap. As I continue in my journey I keep on taking a deep breath, and trying the new. Testing the limits.
One such thing? More posts with my thoughts instead of worrying that people may only want to see the “best” projects I can offer and nothing else. Ah because the very best thing about being creatively brave?
It helps beat back the voices that say no, that say I can’t, and it feeds my positive self.
and isn’t that always a good thing? Keep on discovering my friends, and I’ll keep sharing my journey with you as well..
