This two week course will focus on our creativity and pushing ourselves to the next level in our chosen outlet, mine will, obviously be photography :)
Today is the third day and I would encourage you all to join in!
Journal Prompt :
Name some of your biggest creative buzz kills, including a person or two, and disarm them!
My biggest creative buzz kills... well... the fear of looking like an idiot to someone who I think knows more than me... or to look ridiculous and have people who don't know a thing, laugh and point.
I stand in my own way a lot of the time.
Even in High School, and Middle School before that, I had a hard time embarking on a new journey. The knowing that I would not be the best and the fear of failure kept me from embracing all the things I loved to do... or just wanted to try.
I know it sounds like a cop-out to name myself as the person who creates my "buzz kill", like I am trying to get off the hook for something, but in this journey... creatively, spiritually and personally, I am by far the biggest stumbling block I face. I have to learn to be more gentle with myself and set my own standards... I have to see the progress I AM making and keep my goals realistic.
Our Theme Today was "Multilayered" and while I wanted to go beyond the word, like the amazing Jade, I saw this multilayered, origami elephant and I wanted so badly to photograph him... I think he is so sweet :)
(( sooc are the smaller ones ))
I have always loved elephants, ever since I was small. And now, since The Secret Garden, that has only increased...
