I watched a documentary on Woody Allen recently and loved it. I aspire to his lack of interest in reviews (other people's assessments) and his acceptance of the process of working, with all the uncertainty of outcome. He accepts that there are going to be misses.
I've been drawing and writing for many years and I still find it difficult to look with ease upon those pieces that don't float my boat - to accept that at the time, I made a true effort to connect to something important to me and express it well. But watching Woody Allen, I realize my desire to work is stronger than my demand that each piece be a "great" one. I want them all to be wonderful to me, of course, but I think, what is more wonderful is the feeling of being free to create - whatever.
It's about learning to honor the desire to create over the fear of getting it "wrong". Here's to whatever you create today.
