Do you ever have an idea in your head that you just struggle to bring to life? I have so many concepts jotted down in some notebook somewhere, and every single time I try to get myself to write any of them, it’s like my brain shuts down and doesn’t know what on earth the whole concept was about in the first place! It’s an extremely frustrating thing to happen to any person who is in the creative field because we don’t really have a lot to do if we don’t have somewhere to begin.
And in my case, I really don’t know where to begin because I have way too many ideas that I really want to work on. It gets even harder because I want to do all of them the justice they deserve. So, the ideas keep piling up and the right time to work on any of them never really comes.
So, here’s a reminder to everybody who is going through something similar that your self-worth shouldn’t be tied down to something as fickle as the number of ideas in your head or the number of works you have churned out. They only add to your value; they do not determine whether you’re worthy of love or praise. You’re just as talented and just as worthy even if you don’t churn out 10 different works in a week.
It can be very hard to begin working on an idea that you are so infatuated with because there is always the fear that something could go very wrong halfway through, but I hope you know that what makes your work worthy of praise is all you and your hard work. The first stroke on a canvas always feels like too much because it sets the path for the entire painting, so I understand that it can be really hard to figure out where to begin.
But don’t let that hold you back from unleashing all the creativity you have at your disposal. Begin in your own time and believe in yourself.
You’ve got this!
