Words that are speaking to Me

"To live a creative life, we must lose our fear of being wrong."
~Joseph Chilton Pearce

Okay, I suppose it's somewhat ironic that I'm posting this right after my Wordless Wednesday. But I don't want to wait until tomorrow to post this because these words are speaking to me NOW.
I have always lived with a tremendous fear of being wrong and not measuring up to other people's standards, or my perception of their standards.

I really want to create. I want to write, to paint, to carve. My fear of failing or being wrong always holds me back, often from even trying. I'm determined to try. And to take pleasure in the act of creating.


  1. Don't you ever wonder how many rough drafts were tossed in the waste basket, canvases were painted over, or choruses were re-recorded before the artists had something worth sharing?
    Go for it, girl!

  2. Never fear - Just Do It! - as Nike would say. What have you got to lose? Cool blog, kiddo. Who would have guessed? This alone smacks of talent.
    Luv ya. Is. 41:10

  3. and yet more things that we have in common! Let's go create and throw caution to the wind!
