Hey, creative friend! 💛
I promised myself I’d wake up, write to you for one hour every morning, and then hit publish no matter what. This *seemed* like a good idea at the time. But now that it’s here, it feels ridiculous-scary.
1- The perfectionist in me is losing.her.shit.
Shouldn’t I sleep on things for at least 24 hours before putting them out into the world? What if I say the wrong thing? What if it’s not good enough?
That’s one fear.
But, if I’m being completely honest (and I promised myself & you that I would be here), the thing that really scares me the most is this other thought that constantly shows up when I go to write.
2 – What is the point of putting out content anyway? Will all this work to create a post/email/caption even make a difference? Will this really move the needle forward?
I don’t know.
Because we don’t get to know the impact of something before we create it.
We have to put it out there first, and then find out.
And maybe that’s just it. Maybe creating was never meant to be something with a predictable outcome. Something that’s only worthy of our time if it’s making us money or ‘generating our next lead.’
You picked up your camera because that’s when you feel most at home with yourself. You’re an artist because even if you had to take another job to pay the bills, you’d stay up late designing websites just because.
Put your work out there and let it go. Maybe it will have a huge impact. Maybe only you will love it.
It belongs in the world either way.
