It's beem almost one month on my journey in this creative world (the exact date would fall on the 3rd of November). I must admit through in this one month, there were days when my logical mind took over..being an IT person i guess is only normal that i analyze this with my left brain, where "analyzing" my creativity turns into fear. At times i could be confident but on any other days i could be chewing on my finger nails. >_< And on some days i would be inspired again so much so that it reassure me that i following my heart is right...that this little plunge is the right start.
Sometimes i hear criticism from others wondering why i'm putting so much effort, time and money into something that has yet to show me any return. I won't deny it; i felt my blood boiling up and hot. But after reading Tama's This time i dance, she said "Criticism only strickes a fire when we provide the wood". This is so true, all those anger and fear that were stir up by criticism was so unnecessry. After all, it doesn't matter what others say, what matters most is that i choose what i listern and agree to. This was, and continues to be, how my journey has been so far.
I totally love this quota from Tama's This time i dance "Many of us stop at the threshold of our extraodinary capabilities because we can't see how to do something. We can't figure out how things wil happen. We can't plan an inspred life. Your brain will never take you there. But your love can and will." With that, i have this persistent desire to continue to follow my love again and again. I have a whole new creative world to discover, more to learn, alot more to do and this is just the begining. It is nice to know that i have a "mentor" that i can look up to, someone that gives me this invisible support spiritually and mentally. She doesn't know that i have self elected her as my "mentor" but her kind words always makes me feel calm and peaceful, is like she could reach out to the fearless spirit within me. I couldn't help but pulled up my chair with my hot mug of coffee and listern to her warm stories.
Just wanted to share some thoughts in my journey so far, i hope you did enjoy reading my little prograss. Here's my Chibi Chloe treat bag(s) for all to enjoy, with that i would like to wish each and everyone of you a happy halloween!
Happy creative halloween day!
