Trust II

I just found out about a blog called Creative Therapy while reading one of my favorite blogs Creative Thursday (do you see a theme here?), and I really thought you guys would appreciate it. Every week Creative Therapy has a “catalyst” in the form of a question that different artists use as a jumping off point for a piece of artwork.

This week’s question is What’s the best advice you received that encouraged you to follow your dreams? (or advice you’d give to others so they can follow their dreams.)

As those of you who read this blog regularly already know, dreams and inspirational advice are two of my favorite things. In thinking about how I would answer this question, I was reminded of a former post I did with the following advice:


I wish I could remember where I first read or heard this, but this advice sticks with me and can be applied to pretty much any situation. It’s like a first aid kit for the heart. Drawing it up again reminds me of how I want to live my life. Perhaps I should give myself the homework of writing this out longhand 20 times every day like in school? It would be even more poignant on a giant blackboard.

I’d like to wish you all the ability to trust!

    Thanks for sharing those links, I can’t wait to check them out and that quote. I’ll have to write that out on a large piece of paper and post it in my art room.
