Last week I was asked to be a guest artist for an Art Therapy lecture and I needed to provide a Zentangle design, explaining the entire creative process
I’ve just started to deepen my study into Art Therapy and the fact that a very successful and knowledgeable teacher from the UK was offering me to be part of her new project it made me feel very proud, but on the other hand, I was very nervous and all the feelings of not being good enough for the task were assailing me all at once.
I’ve struggled most of my life with a sense of low self-esteem.
I’ve always felt that I wasn’t good enough, although everyone around me kept praising me for my endless creativity.
I’ve started many projects that has been left unfinished, somehow for the lack of confidence and the fear of judgement.
However this time has been different. I needed to prove myself that I could do it!
This was the best assignment that anyone could have ever gave me. It really helped me focus and express myself in a way that boosted my spirit and improved my focus.
I’m developing a “Courageous Heart” to fulfill my goals and dreams, while using the best tool that I have: “my endless creativity…”
