Chapter 1 in TAW was eye-opening for me and I found myself nodding yes to several quotes:
"As a rule of thumb, shadow artists judge themselves harshly, beating themselves for years over the fact that they have not acted on their dreams."
"Most of the time when we are blocked in an area of our life, it is because we feel safer that way. We may not be happy, but at least we know what we are--unhappy. Much fear of our own creativity is the fear of the unknown."
I did the Morning Pages only one day this week. I am thinking I need to switch to writing them at night before bed - when I have time to myself to actually do so.
Neither did I go on an Artist Date...unless you count weeding the flower garden alone as such. I could give a list of excuses, but I am a homebody at heart. I will try again this week.
Imaginary Lives: If I had five other lives to lead, I would be:
~ a singer
~ work on a cattle or horse ranch
~ a cop
~ an adventurer
My affirmation is: I, Tracy, am a brilliant and an inspired writer.
