And yet, this is what I did today :
"getting to know you inside and out" - journal page
(acrylic paint background - dragging paint with old credit card, white gel pen details, anatomy images found on Flickr, crowns from ArtChixs)
sweet spot from journal page
How can I be so fearless in one area of my life and so frozen in sticky, scary, stuckness in most of the rest ? To me, this journal page is fearless - no inner critic stopped me from doing anything ! I just went for whatever my inner artist wanted. I love this page. I love that I made it. I love the artist in me that is capable of it. I don't even give a crap about what you think of it...I really and truly made it for me !!!!
So, now, how do I translate this into the other things I need to do to get my life moving in a more positive, fulfilling direction ? How do I break through that paralyzing fear that holds me in place ? I know, you are all saying "Just do it!" like some crazy sports equipment commercial on high volume in stereo or surround sound !!!!
But I can't hear you. I have a sticky stuckness stuck like a banana in my ear*...
I suppose I will dig it out and face stuff eventually...but for now... where is the paint, paper and glue ?
*[the banana things is an old time reference to Ernie from Sesame Street - didn't want you to think I was crazy or anything !!! ;-)]
