I got a new book over the weekend. The Creative Edge by Mary Todd Beam. It really has made me think about why I create what I create. Plus what is holding me back from doing what I want to do.
Part one of my problem is that I do not believe in myself. Comes from my not so pleasant childhood. Some days I just push past it and others well I get hung up on it. Sometimes to be honest, I think it is my excuse for not following my dreams. My biggest dream is that I want to teach children art lessons. So, I decided that I would teach private lessons. In my area art in some schools is down to 1/2 hour once a week! UGH! I have all the paper work filled out but one line and my $20 in hand, but since I can’t then of a good name…I sit and do nothing. Is it just so I don’t have to worry about failing? or being successful?
Do you have things you want to achieve but don’t believe you can do them?
I want to BELIEVE so I can ACIEVE and GROW!
All journal pages creative using an exercise in The Creative Edge- black gesso, tin foil, and water colors. Words added in photoshop
If you have any suggestion for a name for my childrens art lessons, I would love to hear them.
Thanks for stopping in!
