Always keep your mind as bright and clear as the vast sky, 
the great ocean, and the highest peak, empty of all thoughts. 
Always keep your body filled with light and heat.
 Fill yourself with the power of wisdom and enlightenment. 
Morihei Ueshiba 

Contrary to the quote, I chose today I am having trouble  to keep my mind clear, and for the first time in the many months I have started this blog, I am struggling with writing.  I have projects I want to work on, but I find myself digging my heels on the ground and refusing to move.
Ideas keep coming, but there a deep seated feeling, dead in the center of my gut that I better stop now, before I make a total fool of myself.  A bit scary and not very productive, I tell you.

Quite a surprising challenge, when my word for this year is BELIEVE…

I am starting to wonder if it is just a subconscious way to test my own resolve so as to find out what I can really accomplish…Deep breath now! Rolling up my sleeves,and tackling self-doubt head on!  I refuse to surrender to this head game, I am playing with myself and I will just need to plow through steadily to find the way out, of this creative block. I’ll keep you posted.

Wish me luck 😉


  1. Tracy! You are right, I have to give it time and learn to trust myself and just keep going until I move forward. I love your Valentine flags, just adorable :-)((HUGS))Karen, perfectionism is definitely part of my problem…The photography class has been re-scheduled for next week! I am so excited !!!ladyfi 🙂 I am glad you like this sky, it's been this way for about two weeks. Norma, Thank you! Have a great Sunday 🙂


  2. I think it is also a problem of perfectionism. I post pictures but cringe because I think they aren't perfect, so why am I making a fool of myself in public. I can't seem to get it through my head (emotionally, that is) that I can't be perfect after only a few months of taking photographs. I'm trying to keep in mind the 10,000 hours rule.Which reminds me – How is the photography class going?


  3. Wishing all great luck for moving forward, Anyes! I can well understand your feelings and anxiety. For creative people, I think we often second-guess ourselves. It takes time to learn to trust our voice and rest in the beauty of the Universe and trust that that too will support us and keep us going. Don't give up. We don't know what we can do until we get going, and keep going! :o) Bless you for sharing your heart & soul here–it takes courage. Happy Weekend ((HUGS)) Oh, if you get a chance and need a fun break stop by–I'm having a Valentine gift giveaway from this weekend!


Talk to me, I am listening :-)
