i am glad that i settled into being a creative. a creator. a wearer of many hats. i am proud that i am no longer ashamed of wanting to do everything + be exceptionally good at it. as a kid i was a quitter, an extreme visual learner and an all over the place [mentally] type of gal. it was annoying because i had no clue who i was for the longest time. my creativity wasn't really nurtured and that's partially because i was too scared to stick it out, whatever 'it' was.
"you're doing too much."
"you do enough!"
"let someone else do that."
"you cannot take that on.'
'there's enough of that out there."
"you're just not good enough..."
would drive me crazy + hold me back from succeeding. those thoughts held me back for years from even trying to do anything new or unconventional. take it from me, negative thoughts are crippling! i know i am not the only one who has [had] them either. there are people reading this right now scared to go for something they truly want because of being judged or not feeling worthy. let me tell you, as a creative, you can never create enough. you can never reach your peak. you can never not create. it doesn't matter if you're taking on a new project or if you're revisiting something you put on hold, GO FOR IT.
wear your hats and push yourself! don't worry about your negative thoughts! as a matter of fact, sweep them to the side and dump them in the trash. try not to get engulfed by those who may doubt you. it's not their vision or life, it's yours. don't be a quitter. not trying because you're fearful of failure will be a huge regret. there's nothing worse than knowing you didn't try when you could have.
