Risk

I am so excited about the latest chapter I have been reading in The Artist's Way: Finding Water that I had to share.

Most of them quotes, they can speak to anyone...

"When you go in search of honey you must expect to be stung by bees." -Kenneth Kaunda
"If you don't risk anything, you risk even more." -Erica Jong
"You aim for what you want and if you don't get it, you don't get it, but if you don't aim, you don't get anything." -Francine Prose
"There is no happiness except in the realization that we have accomplished something." Henry Ford
**"Too many people overvalue what they are not and undervalue what they are." -Malcolm Forbes
"Only those that risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go." -T.S. Eliot
"Contrary to our mythology, creativity is not a dangerous pursuit.  The creative flow is both normal and healthy." -Julia Cameron

This chapter is mostly about how strong we are as artists and as creative individuals and how we are able to continue-for either the sake of continuing or the love or both.  In a world surrounded by critics (even positive ones), we are scared to move beyond our comfort zones.  But when we do, that is when we grow.  So don't give up on who you know you should be.  Let your heart lead you where you need to go.
