~Favorite Quote #23~

Favorite Quote #23 quotes inspirationI think that in order to obtain true creativity, sometimes we really have to dig deep and produce something that feels perhaps inappropriate.  I have said before that as an artist it’s ok to bleed from time to time regardless if it’s going to cause some controversy.  Being real is better than being fake despite who you are going to upset.  I could honestly use this advice when it comes to some things I would like to write about.  I have so many pieces of me that I have written about but then upon clicking the publish button, I start to think too much…start to think who it will effect…and then stop myself from publishing it.

  1. This is an awesome quote! I think this is very true as I do the same thing with my short stories. I write and I get so proud of my work but then I let the crazy thoughts and doubts creep in then I don’t want to share them for fear that no one will want to read them. I like this quote very much! Thanks for sharing. Visiting from #candidcuddles

  2. I change and tweek my blog posts sometimes because I’m not yet ready to put even half of myself completely out there. It’s HARD, and I still have a few unpublished posts, too! Also, when my daughter is doing a craft that I want to blog about, I sometimes have to fight the urge to ask her to change something so that it looks “nicer” for a photo. I know it’s more important for her to take ownership of her work than for me to have a perfect craft for a photograph! #candidcuddles

    1. It is really hard to sometimes put all of ourselves out there. I give kudos to any artist who does. But remember that even the most brilliant of artists had “quirks” to get through to produce the most fascinating pieces of work. ❤️

  3. WOW! great comment and SO true. I think especially when you said it’s better to be real than fake because you’re worried about offending someone is so powerful. I struggle with this every day, especially when blogging so it’s nice to know that other people feel the same way sometimes.

    1. It’s hard to write some things about people in your life when they are reading your stuff. There are lots of things I would like to write about my childhood but don’t because of upsetting my family. It is what it is. Thanks for popping over.

  4. I think you’re very right about this. Sometimes it takes me a whole lotta “wrong” before I can see why I’m wrong, then I’m able to adjust my feelings, or my heart, and find the way to right. Not everyone has as much empathy as you, keep your heart big and open, it’s a gift!

    1. Thanks Nikki but I really am not a very empathetic person. It takes me a lot to forgive someone for doing me wrong and sometimes I forgive but never forget. I love the quote though when it comes to being an artist :o)

  5. I’m always afraid of being too open and exposing myself to ridicule or criticism, of affecting other people close to me in some way or sometimes of being too negative. Often I don’t even know why I’m afraid and why I’m censoring myself, but I do hold back a lot. Maybe gradually more hard reality will seep into my writing, who knows.? #CandidCuddles

  6. This is a really great one T! It’s far too easy to second guess yourself & to over think what you are writing. Writing a blog is so artistic & I think you are giving the best advice to just go with your gut. Thanks so much for sharing with #candidcuddles it’s lovely to have you link up every week!! x
