“Worry not that no one knows of you; seek to be worth knowing.” -Confucius
If you haven’t already noticed, I’ve been slowly working on my blog design and structure, making it more neat and consistent. I really had to change up things because February rolled around and I still had a Xmas hat on owlie! I know there’s still a lot to do and much that could be optimized and improved on. However, I’ve learned that everything is a work in progress and that’s okay.
I’m one of those who holds back a lot of sharing for fear of imperfection…for fear of judgement I suppose. At least I was one of those people before. I’m getting better at just sharing now because it’s fun, it’s social (and human!) and often quite helpful in the end. In the past I think I was worrying too much that no one cared, no one would notice my work and all those negative thoughts that runs through an artist’s mind. I was struck by the Confucius quote you see above because all this time I’ve been concentrating on the wrong thing. Instead of worrying and fearing…about future stuff that I can’t predict anyway…I really just need to live my life to the fullest and open myself up – being the best I can be. Hey, wait…so I just have to be me?! That’s easy! 😛
Naturally, when you are worth knowing the people will come and the discussions will start and hopefully friendships will form. A bit like finding one’s style, I guess it’s something that comes when the time is right and there’s no sense fretting about. Anyway, that’s been on my mind this week as I work away…I hope it provides some food for thought. Have a great weekend!
