trust is the key

New Painting called:  American Hardwoods

I feel so lucky that I have a place I can come to for great support and advice. I want to say thank you to all of you for your input yesterday. I love that I have blog friends who understand me! 

After some reflection I realize the reason I was feeling so confused yesterday is due to fear. Fear that I will not succeed. Fear that I will not have money. Fear that I should do what society thinks is the best way.  I went over to Creative Thursday's Podcast  (thanks for the reminder Ashley) and listened to her podcast on trust. Here are some points that really spoke to me:

Trusting myself means:

believing in myself
believing in my creations
I can think clearly
I already have the answers
that life is working in my favor 
that I won't compare myself to others
that I will make decisions from a place that is secure and happy

Not trusting myself means:

I will let others beliefs drive my decisions
I make decisions out of fear
I will not have peace
I will not be creative
I will not be happy
Therefore, I have decided to not apply for the teaching job. Instead I will keep making more artwork. I will trust myself. And if I better be the first to tell me!

May peace and trust be with you...(that sounds church-y)
