Happiness Happens {Guest Post}

“Be strong and courageous.” (Joshua 1:9 NIV)

I have found that to take the risk of making something, whether planned or impromptu, takes courage and strength. Even as I am writing this guest post today for Three Way Light, for you, for Jody and even for myself, I feel a bit frightened. What if I don’t meet the expectations? What if I don’t make sense? What if people think maintaining a visual/art/creative journal practice is unnecessary?

I allow the questions to surface, and I wrestle with them. Then I think about all the times writing has helped me process such questions. And how when I don’t know what I want or even what to write, images and words from a magazine widen my perspective or reveal something I hadn’t even known I wanted to express yet.

To read the rest of this guest post, head on over to Jody’s place . . . Three Way Light!

I love a dialogue. Be the first to start a discussion!
