This blog is really just a place for me to creatively vent, its not edited, its not refined and its not pretty.
I have stopped writing for a while because I was criticised by few people about the quality of my blog in comparison, to my former publication Capture 30 days.
How funny, that so many of us, allow a little bit negativity, to stop our creative process. I struggle a lot with worrying about what others think. Im desperately trying to change this weakness, but with creativity its even more epidemic.
I posted a photo on facebook this week that stated ‘To live a creative life we must lose our fear of being wrong.’
It’s so true. I even had someone write something critical on the photo I pasted online and straight away I regretted putting my thoughts out there.
I’m sure there are other readers out there who stumble with approval addiction. I know I’m not the only one, because there are so many creative people who struggle to put their thoughts online, because there are so many critics in the dark dimly computer screen lit rooms, with no accountability for the sharp arrows they throw at others to make themselves feel somewhat superior.
Ahh, that feels so much better to get that off my chest and I promise my rant is not aimed at any one in particular. I am venting towards the cowards who pull people down, out of their on bad sense of self.
How much more inspiration would be released into our world if people felt the fear and did it anyway!
