We are mid-way through June – how is that possible? As I sit here on the brink of this growing Artist Life, I’m feeling both excitement and apprehension. Will I be able to clearly portray and share my message? Will people “get it”? Get what I am saying, get my whole mission? I know people are highly intelligent, so if they don’t, it’s my own communication failure (gulp)!
What I found is more than embarrassing, especially considering my work’s message – Art for a New Focus. My Pains page was very intense, detailed, found a clear thread, was carefully typed out and saved with a file name so I could refer to it again. My Joys page? I can’t even find it!!! Seriously?! The classic light bulb moment.
What does that tell the world about me? That I’m a Fake Joy Promoting Messenger?? Ahhh, there’s that fear trying to throw a wet towel on me again…
I’m spurred on to shout out with further clarity and determination! I will intentionally document and learn from the Joys in Life. Let those things shape who I am, instead of defining myself by my Pains. I will clutch the Joys in each day and allow them to permeate my thoughts and mind. Then document them, re-read them, add to them, and share them. Will you join me?
