Perfectionism…..

Image

Take it, or leave it?   That is the question.

The number one thing that stops an artist or anyone else in their tracks. It is wonderful to do your best, and work hard at it. Some things require it! But repetition is something that will help overcome a persons inability to do our best. An artist for instance, in my opinion will create more interesting art if it comes from the heart, without the fear of painting a piece we think will not measure up.

I work very hard at ignoring what others think, knowing not everyone will like or appreciate my kind of art.  That’s ok, we aren’t all alike, and it doesn’t matter.  You can’t please everyone!

I thought this might help some of you to hear it from a different source….not me actually, and definitely not your mother!  Have fun creating whatever kind of creating you do.

Thank you for stopping to visit Stone Soup,  see you next time.

  2. Hi Karen, Thanks for this great post and the wisdom you shared. Perfectionism stops a lot of people. It did me for years too, hence my moniker “The Reluctant Poet”.

    Your piece reminded me of the quote, “Not everybody likes you, but not everybody matters”!
