Good to Remember
This is a great thing to remember. Especially for me. I'm always afraid of doing this wrong, or doing that wrong. Rules, rules, rules. They are always following me. Dictating my choices, my moves, my life. I worry what others think...much more than I should. Will I be good enough? Will they like me? Can I cut it? But, I find that it stifles me to listen to that. It shuts down the creative juices, and makes me worry more about "them" than what I am trying to accomplish. I will never be able to succeed or excel with "them" being my focus. Easy to say, harder to do. But, I am truly making an effort to ignore "them." Who cares if they like me, who cares if they acknowledge my work. Am I happy with what I'm doing? That's the question that should matter most. I'm sharing this because, as creative people, I'm sure there are others out there that could use this little message right now as well. It's a good thing to hold in your heart. So, when the "rules" and "people" and "self-doubt" come a knocking, you can just shut the door, and remember that it's ok to be wrong every so often. It means that at least we are trying to do something right.
