How do you overcome your inner critic?
#DoodleaDay is helping me have that conversation — the one in the above doodle. It’s so common, isn’t it? Especially if you’re just starting a project of any kind. For me it was starting blogging, and then to keep up with blogging.
And now it is doodling– I doodle in lines and squiggles; I’m not an artist, but I think this doodling daily is improving that, along with overcoming my blogging arguments.
So my advice to myself and my readers is to to keep trying — and like that last part on the doodle:
we learn when we read and watch what others do,
so acknowledge those who went before
by honoring them with your take
on what was learned from them,
and share so others learn too.
Just go where your heart takes you and share it–
As sharing like this makes the world great!
