This piece was created as a part of my 2016 project #AbstractAffirmationsDaily where I share an abstract piece of art with a positive message every day. Here's the story that accompanies this piece, posted on 9/9/2016:
I was listening to @elizabeth_gilbert_writer's podcast today, #MagicLessons, where she always gently guides a creative person who feels stuck to the answers they might need to get UNstuck.
On this particular episode, the "creative person" in question was a writer with one successful novel under her belt who was struggling to move forward with her second. Every time she got going on an idea, she found herself questioning, Is this good enough? Is this book worth writing? Is this book worth reading?
The conversation that ensued culminated in Liz saying something to the effect of (and I'm paraphrasing here...): HELL YES it's worth it. In the end, it really doesn't matter what other people think of your book, your thing you made. It will never be perfect. But the doing of it if inspiration calls to you will always make it worth it. Whether anyone reads it, whether you think it's RIGHT, whether you think you could have done better, you made it. You learned something. You DID something. And if you did the thing your heart called you to do, well of course it was worth it.
I've been guilty of asking myself this question before, usually when I'm more focused on how something I've made will be received than what I learned in the process of making it. Not anymore. If you love it, it is worth doing.
