I had to share part of my devotional today. It’s a beautiful piece of encouragement from The Artist’s Way. If you needed to hear this as much as I did, post a comment and let me know you are out there. Whether your an orphan in Cambodia shooting from a Tuk-Tuk with a dream of being a photographer
or a stay at home mom, dedicated to own little ones and has a growing dream to see her own desires SOAR, START AGAIN! And no you are not alone in starting again. We are all together on this!
“You say you want to make art. You want to begin or you want to continue. This is good. We need a more artful world, and that means we need you and and the specific contribution that you and you alone can make. But to make it you must start somewhere, and that is often the sticking point. We all have our fears, and they feel as real as the chair you are sitting in. Like that chair, they can be slouched into or left behind. Sometimes we need to sit up and ignore the cricks in our back and shoulders and just begin. That’s how it is with art. We just need to begin.
Begin where you are, with who you are.
In order to go where you want to go creatively, you have to start somewhere. And the best place to start is precisely where you are. This is true whether you are a beginning artist or someone with long miles down the track. In fact, seasoned artists can waste time and energy mulling the dignity of their acquired position in the field when the truth is, they still need to just start again.”
Let’s be inspired today to just start, whether it’s starting again or for the first time!
love you all!
