And while I’m pointing fingers…

I absolutely have to point out this photographer that I discovered in Denver! Okay.  I didn’t discover her.  She’s one of my best friends. I know.  I know.  I’ve already pointed at her.  I pointed to her wordpress on my blogroll.

Inspiration

It has been helping me stay inspired through my day. It improves my mood and lifts my spirit. What Brian Johnson refers to as “Big Ideas”, I have always referred to as “duh moments”. This wisdom – these big ideas – all come from universal truths. I think that these ideas resonate so well because we already know them in our hearts – it’s just difficult to keep them at the forefront of our minds while trying to make our way through our incredibly busy daily lives.

Vulnerability

So, I ask myself – what am I afraid of saying today? Today, I’m afraid of what those closest to me will think of my story. I’m terrified that they will tell me that it’s no good. I’m afraid that they will tell me it doesn’t have a chance. I’m afraid that this will derail the momentum I’ve been building towards actually getting it finished.

I’m afraid of being told to that I should stick to being a data analyst.

No Guts…No Story

The hard part of being an artist isn’t putting it out there to be appreciated. It is a willingness to be ridiculed, to have your value and your vision questioned, to be told that you aren’t an artist.

No Guts…No Story
“And by the way, everything in life is writable about if you have the outgoing guts to do it, and the imagination to improvise. The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt.” ~ Sylvia Plath
