“Success is not final, failure is not fatal:
How many times have we given up on a new creative idea, or a an innovative project or even our dreams??
Being a creative soul can be a sensitive business. We pour our hearts and souls into our work and then lay it out there for the world to see and critique at will. And when that critique is not accepting does that mean we have failed?
Of course not!
Our creative journeys are a daily road we walk upon. It is a part of who we are.
And this takes COURAGE!
Deep down, pull it from the gut, courage!
It’s when you get back to the studio and create again, enter that juried show again, submit that manuscript again, call that magazine again, and again and again!
Because we have CREATIVE COURAGE!
I have been participating in an e-course “Flying Lessons” this past month with Kelly Rae Roberts and an amazing group of creatives from all sorts of genres. This has been not only inspiring but has given me courage to continue on my creative journey. Several of us have created a blog circle where we share our blogs on a monthly basis. The camaraderie in this group has been out of this world .
Please take a moment and visit the blog of Mary Williams, photographer to hear her story on inspiration and courage,
