Van Gogh's "A Starry Night"
A few months ago, when I first started my writing career I was very apprehensive about letting people see and read my work.What if people didn't like it? What if I made a mistake and people would point and laugh? What if someone left me a nasty comment criticizing my work? etc. Sometimes the greatest enemy is yourself. I had to get to the point where I just said "Who cares what people think!?" I've wanted this for a long time, I'm not perfect, I will make mistakes, but I want this so I'm willing to put myself out there taking the good with the bad.
I love this quote by my favorite painter because it challenges you to push forward and overcome that internal voice of hindrance that keeps us from accomplishing our dreams. I'm going to stretch it and even say to ignore the external voices. The people that make you feel like you or your work isn't "good enough". There's always going to be people that would rather tear you down then build you up. Today and everyday you are worth it, your work is worth it, continue to put forth effort and challenge yourself to learn from your mistakes!
Here are two of my articles. One is an example of my "best work" and the other is my least favorite. Both allowed me to learn and grow as a writer.
