An epiphany sort of a day.
This is what I wanted to share with you from the Sketchbook Project.
It resonates deep within me, this quote from Maggie Kuhn.
The realization today was that I tend to question what I create. I am joyful, energized, and right where I know I should be while creating. Then, somehow, when I step away, my thoughts turn against me:
It's not really "good enough." If I changed ________, it would be better. It's childish. If I created it like ______, it would be a little more credible. Who would want this?
Yep, those are my inside voices.
And I want those to change.
I want to speak the truth,
even if my voice shakes at first.
Because, I realize this: What I learn in my life goes onto my canvas.
Every emotion is on there, all the thoughts and heart felt achings are on display.
ahhh...it's on display.
Now I will own it instead of pretend it really isn't there.
I will own it and live it out.
Now,when I look at my canvas, I want to say this:
Darn, that was good.
I'm so happy with this.
I want this on my wall.
I want this to go out into the world.
I want this to give someone else the courage to be brave, the courage to live their life.
I want to communicate that we are loved beyond measure.
I want to learn to love myself for who I am and who I was created to be.
Then live it out in every aspect of my life. To hold who I am and hold it tenderly. To tend to it and help it grow.
What is your truth today?
