Just Try


This is meant to motivate me to not give up .Don’t get down on yourself. Just Try.

How often do we miss out on something good because we don’t try. Most times its not because we’re too busy, it’s because we are afraid to try. Whether it’s trying something new, going somewhere new, or just stepping outside your comfort zone push yourself to TRY. It really won’t matter if your endeavor is successful or not because YOU will be successful just for trying.

Last year I decided that I wanted to step outside my comfort zone where art was concerned. I sucked up all my courage(while beating down as much self doubt as possible) and submitted one of my Art Journal pages to a magazine. I was terrified. Guess what? As soon as I handed it over to the Fed Ex lady I felt a sense of accomplishment. Like a self made pat on the back. I had done something really difficult for me and I survived.  I would love to say that they loved the piece and published it on the cover. That would make a great story but it didn’t happen that way.  Nope, it got rejected. But I had gotten a taste of self confidence and decided to submit something else and guess what? That piece was accepted and published. It never could have happened if I didn’t try.

So my message today is to try something outside your comfort zone. Remember baby steps still get you where you want to go.
