When I realised I was fearless
(I was fronting)
(On being fearlessly courageous (part 1)
This past weekend I participated in Open artist studios in South London and I was fronting!
I thought I was ok until I spoke with a fellow artist (who at the age of 60 decided to take up painting), I realised that I was terrified of how the visitors would respond to my work.
I have had my first solo show back in March, however this was from the requests of people who I knew admired my work, and not complete strangers. I realised I cover up my fears with being busy and I hardly acknowledge that little girl inside, who is often very fearful and vulnerable.
So as it was a New Moon and I am letting go, I decided to drop the mask and I let my vulnerable self and my work be seen to the public. Being vulnerable is something that was not really celebrated in my childhood home; vulnerability and mistakes ( for various reasons mainly due to time, money and culture) so I just got on with it. This weekend I gave myself permission to be this way and I allowed myself to receive feedback about my work as long as it was constructive.
The weekend was filled with a lot of love and appreciation for my work. However the real shift was thatI did it! I became fearless through my own self-awareness, care and vulnerability.
