Today is the day to rethink what I’ve been doing. The idea of showing art in a public venue, promoting it, writing about it and letting all local people know that I have this blog and have shared quite a bit… anyway, although I know it’s what I want to do, it still scares the living daylights out of me.
It’s not that I’m not comfortable with attention, but this takes it to a whole new level.
I know I am approved of. I know my work is good. I know I have a lot to say. I know there are many people who don’t like my style (that’s a natural thing of life), but still like me as a person. I know there are a lot of people who don’t care either way. All of this is ok.
Why am I so afraid?
Marianne Williamson says that we are much more afraid of our greatness than we are of our weakness. I can screw up day and night and be over it the next day. No problem. I can forgive myself easily. But when it comes to stepping out to shine? Different story altogether.
It’s time to get over it, I know. Fire is burning the ground I stand on and I have to move and keep moving, so here I go!
