I will be the first to admit, that I usually let fear stop me from doing a lot of things.
Fear of rejection, fear of the unknown, fear of failing....FEAR!
I realized when I had my bit of "quiet time" as I was unpacking the contents for the Art of the Carolina's challenge that fear had once again stepped in. There was a lot of internal dialog...even as I was unpacking the bag, as to why I could not pull this challenge off, and I sat there thinking of creative ways to let the group know why I could not participate....wow, talk about time wasted. In full agitation, I just slapped paint on the canvas, and began.
I wonder if this in normal....being afraid, but then letting go and just jumping in.
I also wonder how many opportunities I have let pass me by because of FEAR.
I did the challenge anyway (and will post pics of it as soon as I am finished). But I am now fully convinced...no longer will I let fear stop me from doing the things that I enjoy. I absolutely love art...Love, Love, Love it...and its insane for me to let fear stop me from doing what I love...I am not in charge of the results...just doing it is all I have to do.
Until next time,
