Happy New Year
to my family, friends and online friends!
Word of the year....
Negative comments were part of my growing up. It did stunt my creative Voice. I let this happen over and over. I find it hard to trust my voice when I create. Those negative people fly into my head. What would so and so think of this? Yet when I give those people a gift from my heart, they seem to like it but its not what I really wanted to make. I chickened out and use some other makers vision/voice. I tend to get nervous when I use my Voice and create something original. Is it good enough? Will people get what I am trying to say through my art. Then I stop myself, stare at it for days and finally put it away. I need to trust my own Voice, My own thoughts.
My word for 2018 is Voice. It really should be the phrase:
Trust My Voice.
