The Bullshit Stories I Tell Myself

I don’t draw and I don’t paint because I can’t draw… I’m not good at that! This is a story I’ve told myself since my childhood. I’m not sure where the STORY came from, but I’m learning it was a big FAT lie! One I told myself! 

I spent the last 49 years not drawing or painting or exploring that part of myself because of that stupid story!    With all the changes and challenges my life has experienced over the last several months, I’ve had the ability to test many things about myself, my abilities and more importantly my stupid stories. The limiting ones that kept me from LIVING and EXPERIENCING life to the fullest. 

I’m done with these bullshit stories that limit my life. I call bullshit on all of them! It’s scary to let go of ones stories, letting them go means you have to pick up the paint brush and risk painting! Scary shit!

I CAN draw and paint! I’m not so good at it…yet, I’ve only been at it for a few weeks, but I’m learning and experiencing the fun of playing with paint! It’s sooooo fun and so therapeutic. I can’t believe I was missing out on this because of my BS stories! Argggg

I’m posting my “art” because I made a crazy ass pledge to a group of people that I wouldn’t hide for 100 days. What was I thinking!!!! My heart is racing as I’m about to click “post” because hiding is easier than being vulnerable and risking the criticism and judgements of others. 

Be kind…I’m a beginner! It’s 16X20 in size and Mackenzie likes it! ????????????????????
