|"Happy" a mixed media acrylic painting.|
This Mixed-Media piece that I just finished is "Happy", because it made me happy to paint it.
It has opened me up to just doing what makes me happy.
I am trying so hard to stop wondering if other people will like my artwork.
That fear of approval from others has kept me stagnant in so many areas of my creative life.
When I think about it, what do I have to loose by following what brings joy and beauty in my life, except for joy, creating and beauty.
I think it is a strange vicious cycle.
For me, I have to work daily on this or I will let the pain, health issues and my own insecurities win.
I cannot let the label of "dis-able" define me,
even though it may take me longer to create something,
or make plans that may need to be cancelled last minute,
or miss PPF...
I can still create, love, find joy in the little and big things.
It's just time for me to finally let go of the fear of disapproval ,
created mainly by own insecurity
(and a little from people that do not understand)
of how much my life has changed in the last 6 years.
I cannot start a new chapter of worthiness
without turning the page.
Have a FANTASTIC Paint Party Friday!
Time to go and visit other awesome, amazing, artists!
