Fear and Doubt have been long running frenemies of mine. Sometimes, they have kept me from making huge life destroying mistakes. However, they have also hindered more than a few of my artistic pursuits. Fear and Doubt can be very persuasive at times and often they speak to me in whispered tones.
Lately, I have found the best way to tune them out is to close my eyes and summon up the joy which comes from creating something.
