Do you find the end of something leaves you with a slight unsettled feeling?
I certainly do. This week has been about tying up loose ends and the start of some exciting new projects.
It has been about tiding up all the loose ends from 2020, cleaning off the top of the desk, washing out the brushes and putting away all the paints, sweeping the floor and emptying the trash. Anytime I Start a new project, especially one this large, there is always these two conflicting emotions; excitement and anticipation bumping up right next to the fear of the unknown and possible failure.
I struggle with these two voices in my head and find myself questioning my ability to accomplish such a large undertaking. I always return to reading my two favorite books when this happens. The words within them quiets the fearful, insecure voice rattling around in my head and reaffirms that we are all capable of taking on any task that is guided by passion, excitement and joy.

This book has always helped me quiet not only my own inner voices of self-doubt and fear but remind me that anything is possible.
Trust The Process : An Artist Guide To Letting Go
by Shaun McNiff| Mar 31, 1998
I am always reminded that there is a magic to this process of creating and somehow it always finds a way to the place where you need it to be, and a destination you never could have known in advance.
Today I look forward to this new year, with joy and excitement. I am sure we all are ready for a new experience in 2021.
If you have any books, videos, articles that help you in this type of journey I look forward to hearing from you.
