Last night I hit publish on a video I'm a little nervous of releasing...I don't know why, well perhaps I do; because I'm a rather candid in it. Right now I feel a calling to be more forthright in what I share and so I will. I will share more of well me, my deepest thoughts and opinions regarding creative life. However just because I feel I want to do something it does not stop the creative demons coming up to have a party and 'poo poo' all over it.
Considering the video is all about getting on with creating what you want in spite of such things as excuses though I obviously could not listen to the fears when they tell me 'people won't like it', 'you're being too aggressive', 'ra, ra, ra'. So I clenched my teeth, and hit publish anyway.
We are creators, and demons are part of that package, but our choices are still our own.
Excuses, fears, overwhelm, analysis paralysis, comparisonitus cannot act of their own accord. If they are in the drivers seat, honey you gave them the wheel. But that's okay you can still get it back, and you do so by hitting publish on whatever it is you are creating.
Here is the video ~ Art & Life: Do It Your Way

PS Since I hit publish on this video the response has been so OVERWHELMINGLY positive...as per the message of the video 'not knowing how is not an excuse not to do something', it seems the same should be applied to feeling fear!
Hit publish love.
