Ok...first, I have a bit of a confession...
I am learning this "blog thing" and have found that I have been messing up all this time.
You see, when someone leaves me a comment, I get an email and hit reply to send them a message of some sort in response to their reply....
I didn't realize until recently...like Sunday, that some bloggers have a "non-reply blogger" address, so, my reply emails have been going out to blog universe somewhere and not to the actual person...ooops...
So, I truly apologize that you all might be thinking that Ihave not been sending thoughts right back to you, but...well, I'm learning....I now see why some people actually reply back at their original blog comment...live and learn!!!
I got an email from a wonderfully kind blog friend, Mary over at A Splendid Adventure, and was just completely inspired. She helped me understand that we all feel that our art just may not stack up to others....but, its our own journey...and just that little snippet from her completely helped me see that I don't have to compare myself to others (as I am oh so guilty of doing)....so guilty!
I am the world's worse at thinking that I will never be good enough, or noone will ever like this, or this is not at all what I wanted it to be...so I stop...and whatever it is usually finds its way into the garbage...but you know what....this is my journey....mine alone.... and each of us is creating our own...so Mary, my dear...thank you!!!
Blinders on, I shall create...art for me and my journey...you know what...it feels GOOD!!! I will enjoy this! I'm 40, remember!!
So, to you my blog friends....enjoy your journey as well, and it is so very nice to be able to share mine with you all!!!
Until next time,
