Heart Whispers

I think we all have ups and down in our creative cycles.  And times when we put images and art work out there that we have lovingly created only  to be disappointed at the response.  I think many of us have stories where we still look back and feel the crushing disappointment of not having our work picked for the display board, not being picked for the school play, generally not feeling good enough.

It's at those times when I think we most need to listen when our heart whispers.  The whisper that guided you while you were creating, that formed that piece of art with you, that left a little piece of you with it.  All of us have something to say, our own way of saying it and it all matters. 

This is a reminder to listen to those heart whispers, remember them and cherish them.

I'm linking up with the creative exchange today, for the first time. :)

  1. Lovely and Inspiring thoughts Becs. We might not be the ones to be picked up but we certainly all have a talent we should express, dreams we should pursue, a voice.
    Thanks and have a lovely and fabulous day!

  2. So well said. I think it's when I feel like that, I have to remember that I am doing this for me- not for everyone else. It's when I get back in that zone that all the other things fall back into the place where they belong.

  3. What a brilliant idea, Becs! A wonderful creation and a lovely entry! :)
    It's kind of a "spoiler" ;) for me coz I had not read the lat few BL emails, LOL! Now I know what to expect :)
    Have a lovely and creative day! Ciao!

  4. Becs - glad to have you here at the Creative Exchange - and what a magnificant contribution you have made. Oh, I know that feeling well - of not being "good enough". Of comparing and finding ouselves wanting. Thank you for the reminder to listen instead to our whispering heart.

  5. hi there... i tumbled in to here from somewhere... :)

    i agree. so many times i've posted a piece of art, and unrelated post. whilst i've had a good response to my post, only a couple say anything about the art! lol
    those times i remind myself - i did it for me first.

  6. It is so nice to meet you Becs, and welcome to The Creative Exchange!
    What a wonderful post this is. Truly words we would do well to remember.

    Thank you so very much for sharing with us this week.

    Have a wonderful day!
