Artful Gathering 2012 with CC's Whimsies

I consider this thing called "FEAR" the #1 Life Inhibitor.... A human will never fufill their life's ultimate potential with this bad boy called in FEAR in their life!

As much as I know this, this bad boy does play havoc in my life. I know as we age, we naturally become more "cautious" because we just know or have seen some really crappy stuff! That's why kids do "dumb" stuff because they are FEARLESS!! Yes, kids "just don't know better" and "they will figure it out".... but maybe we need to be a LOT more like them!

I've always considered myself a risk taker and have gambled on my future quite a bit in the past. Sadly, though in the last 4 years, I've gambled and lost over and over again. Why? I don't know...however I do believe all things happen for a reason and the out come was as it was suppose to be..... But it does leave scars and I need a lot of "aloe vera"... LOL!

As an artist you've got to be FEARLESS...especially if you want to make a business out of it, which I DO!!! The biggest poison to fear is "DONT OVER THINK IT"... My first thing I'm working on, and I know this will take lots of practice. My mind is constantly running 180 mph, however I must keep my mind in a positive direction...working towards goals and dreams.... I guess that's why this FOG BANK is KILLING ME. The only way to defeat FEAR is to keep believing in your dreams.

So for today... Do something that makes you uncomfortable..... I did! I kicked and screamed inside, but I got through it.... JUST DO IT! Until tomorrow... Christy

I have been noticing this "FEAR" thing so much lately. I will be 57 in about three weeks. I used to be fearless...but in the past few years I find myself getting more and more cautious... less willing to risk injury or failure. I want to shake it off! We live in the mountains and I often enjoy a walk in the dark and mentioned it to someone and they said "aren't you afraid of mountain lions?" well I hadn't been before but now I can't enjoy my walks simply because someone said that. I hate fear
