feels like standing still
yet I am fast enough to
arrive in due time
Sometimes it feels like there is no progress toward our goals, no matter how many actions we take. We wrote a few pages only to find out that we have to revise them all, from the ground up. Or worse, the entire day’s work had to be re-written. Those moments can bring you to the point of wanting to give up, yet we press on.
If we do not, if we allow this moment of defeat, the moment of what feels like a complete stand-still to actually bring us to a complete stop, we will never experience the truth of how close we were to succeed. Success is at the other end of those moments, the moments that feel motionless, and frustrating. We, as writers and artist need to remember that failures and temporary setbacks are not wasted time, they are still motion forward, even if only in lesson and experience. And we are indeed making progress, and it might be faster than we think.

To live a creative life
we must lose our fear
of being wrong
What are you afraid of most? As artists and creatives, we often explore our own fears, as well as those of our audience, pushing it further than most, beyond that barrier that keeps others from taking action.
Being a creative person is playing at the edge of fear, pushing ourselves, even if we take the chance of being wrong, the chance of not reaching the desired outcome, the desired emotional connection. It takes bravery to be a creative person, an artist, and author.
Embrace your fears, and overcome them.
