Life Stories, My Art Journey

cowardly girl

Today is the day to rethink what I’ve been doing.  The idea of showing art in a public venue, promoting it, writing about it and letting all local people know that I have this blog and have shared quite a bit… anyway, although I know it’s what I want to do, it still scares the living daylights out of me.

It’s not that I’m not comfortable with attention, but this takes it to a whole new level.

I know I am approved of.  I know my work is good.  I know I have a lot to say.  I know there are many people who don’t like my style (that’s a natural thing of life), but still like me as a person.  I know there are a lot of people who don’t care either way.  All of this is ok.

Why am I so afraid?

Marianne Williamson says that we are much more afraid of our greatness than we are of our weakness.  I can screw up day and night and be over it the next day.  No problem.  I can forgive myself easily.  But when it comes to stepping out to shine?  Different story altogether.

It’s time to get over it, I know.  Fire is burning the ground I stand on and I have to move and keep moving, so here I go!
