There are so many exciting and new things I want to challenge myself with and yes, much of the time I think "I've So Got This!"
While other times my negative thoughts get the better of me and I become overwhelmed. I want to curl up in a ball on the couch in my blanket, eat whatever I want and hide from the world.
I'm afraid of failure. Why does not even trying, sometimes seem like a better option than attempting and failing?
Today I saw a quote that I cut out over a year ago and stuck on a bulletin board, I hadn't read it in a while. It touched me so much the first time I read it and it resonated very deeply with me and how I've been feeling when I read it again today.
"If you hear a voice within you say 'you cannot paint,' then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced."
~Vincent Van Gogh
This year I am going to paint.
