When I began this blog, my goal was simple – to create fearlessly. I figured if I was struggling with it someone else out there probably was, too. That goal remains in the back of my mind as I continue to fight the perfection monster and reclaim the child-like joy of creating.
Fear has no place in creativity.
Seriously, all we have to do is show up. How’s that for no pressure? Show up and be who you are. Too often I let fear keep me from awesome things. I listen to what-ifs and turn back to “safe.” Safe is boring. Safe doesn’t reach our goals. Safe doesn’t spark life, it hastens death.
This arrived in my inbox from Lisa Jo Baker. It’s big enough to print out and hang on your wall as a healthy reminder. What’s the worst that can happen? Failure only happens if you quit.
