I may have read one too many inspirational quotes on Pinterest, but at some point, I let go and stopped being afraid of failure. It’s a hard but freeing thing to do.
“Let it go!” Just like the song and the freeing feeling you experience when you watch FROZEN (even if it’s for the 1000+ time) and see Elsa let herself let it all go and be free.
At some point in my life, more recently than not, I had reached a point where I accepted the fact that I could try something and if it didn’t work…oh well:-).
When I was 7, I had a person tell me that I had no talent in art. I know, who tells a 7 year old that they are not good in art. My parents were so mad. No matter how much they encouraged me, I was so sure that I was no good in art because of the statements of this person. It wasn’t until my Sophomore year in high school that I started to play with art again. In retrospect, everything relates back to art. Art is so important. Math problems have patterns and symbols and are beautiful like art. Drawing up a workflow process is art. There is art and beauty in everything. The hardest step is leaping forward and trying.
Don’t be afraid to try! If it doesn’t work out…oh well…at least you can say you tried;-). I love the challenge of trying to ‘make it better’ besides…it can’t get much worse, right:-)
Remember…They Will Love Your Effort<3
