This new year I am working on being fearless. I have always been pretty timid when it comes to being an artist - I don't advocate for myself, I don't speak up when potential opportunities arise, and I often let fear dictate my actions.
Recently I have dealt with some situations that have tested me in a really intense way... After being put in a bad place because I was too timid to speak up for what was right - I finally decided I'd had enough - and probably for the first time in my life I took a stand and it resulted in a really scary leap into the unknown... and even though it scared me to death, it was the right thing for me to do. And because of that, I am doing exactly what I want to be doing, and what I am meant to do. I think I was able to end up here because I had finally come to the place where I was so fed up by my fears getting in the way of my dreams. That may sounds a little cliche, but it's crazy how a really difficult, frustrating, and seemingly futile situation can bring you to exactly where you need to be. So if you are there right now, take heart - it gets better :)
