Recently I have been thinking about fear. I think this is mostly because with all the hard work I’m putting into my art schooling and the average grades I’m earning, I can’t help but really wonder if I’m cut out for this. It could almost paralyze me from creating my freshest ideas. I get so nervous that what I’m doing is so below what everyone else is capable of… I think about what’s going to happen after college and if I’ll ever get a job with my skills… after all, it seems I’m only mediocre. But then, just as quickly as these dark and depressing thoughts come to me, a new, bright one arrives on the horizon. I’m going to do this. I’m going to actually dream the big dreams. Instead of holding back and thinking everyone else is more worthy of a turn, I’m going to push my way up there. Maybe it’ll be futile, but I don’t want to be held back by the monsters of apprehension. I want to risk and take chances, something I was never willing to do before. But, I think there are so many new leaves being turned over for me and I’m willing to believe that this will be apart of it.
Put yourself out there. Say things you mean. Mean things you say. Keep dreaming and dream big. If there’s ever doubt in your abilities, the answer isn’t false confidence but holding onto the fact that you are a workmanship made by the Highest God. He has laid a plan for your life long before you were ever even thought about, and He loves and cares, no other god can do that. The Lord is great and greatly to be praised.
