could i be more courageous?
i'm quite fearless, in general. i have put my reputation, my heart, my trust, my time, my energy, my loyalty, on the line. i've had abuse, distrust, non-acceptance, thrown at me time and time again. yet i never grow bitter. i continue to trust the universe, my intuition, my heart, my purpose. i believe being vulnerable makes me stronger. i don't fear looking at myself honestly. changing, growing. i have courage with this. a recent bad experience had me doing just this, looking within, facing the shadows, and thereby healing and growing.
courage is - feeling the fear and doing it anyway.
where in my life could i bring in more courage?
i fear not being thought good enough in certain areas, such as with my art.
the process of my creativity has seen me shed more and more of that fear. to make mistakes, to embrace mistakes, to share my mistakes! to put my art out there regardless of the reception. to embrace the process rather than the result.
but fear is not an easy foe to beat. nope.
i still fear selling my art, or more accurately, not selling it! to put it out there and to receive a ho-hum reception. i have yet for anyone to say, i like that so much i'll buy it.
senseless forward motion
while i love the process and know that is where joy and peace resides, i would still like being some sort of artist out there.
i also fear running out of inspiration.
i also still fear the loss of time. although a million times less than just a few years ago, i must still work daily on reminding myself that ----- i have all the time in the world.
i could do with more courage with both of these.
i invite more courage into my life.
could you invite more courage?
