The first step is always the hardest.

It is week 10 of my yearlong apprenticeship for summoning the muses and reclaiming my bold, audacious, and creative side following the Art & Soul Reloaded path and my virtual mentor Pam Grout. This week is another lesson in getting on with it, no matter what you are facing.

There is a lovely quote at the beginning of chapter/week ten from Mickey Hart :

Adventures don’t begin until you get into the forest. That first step is an act of faith’.

The same as in the Law of Attraction experimentation and the analogy of driving in the dark – you don’t need to see all the road for the entirety of the journey, you need to see the path right in front of you, ditto with being an artist/or wanting to be one ( or whatever other dreams you might have that you want to fulfil) you need to take the next step in front of you.

As Grout says very eloquently, instead of listening to your inner demons, your fears, your inner Salieri, listen to the voice that says:


This has become her motto, and it sounds pretty good for me too.

What about you? Whatever are your insecurities and fears, you know what? D.I.A. (Do It Anyway).

You’re welcome! (Incidentally, this week’s exercise is to make a sculpture – fun non?).
