43/100 Not ready


For a modern creative, your image and brand is everything. Show it or people won't know. I wish there was an easier way. A hundred unfinished, unpolished pieces sitting there collecting dust. I run my fingers through them once in a while and sometimes marvel at my own idea. "Damn, that was a good", I can distinctly remember how much I enjoyed the process, or even the music I was listening at the time. But soon after, disinterest will surface and I'll detach myself from feeling too much. I've never understood why that happens until recently. Art is like telling a secret, and when you're not ready to tell the story, you're not ready. We are our own worst enemy and critic. "Oh what would others think?", "this is too embarrassing", "but it's not perfect", "is it good enough to show?" and many thoughts later, I realized that self love and validation is the first and only step to healing. Sharing your art has to come from within. Not because everyone else is doing it, not because you think this will get you success because of more exposure, but because you're ready to tell the world a secret, a side of you that no one else knows.
