“Give yourself permission to be a beginner. By being willing to be a bad artist, you have a chance to be an artist, and perhaps, over time, a very good one.”
-Julia Cameron, “The Artist’s Way”
I’m currently reading the book “The Artist’s Way” which is a 12 week program to help recover one’s inner artist from whatever harm has been inflicted on it in the past. Just in the first reading, I’m realizing how much I’ve quieted my musical self when I haven’t felt it to be good enough to “make it.” I’ve been so afraid to be bad at music that I haven’t even given myself the chance to grow. But it’s never too late. I’m excited to see what this book has to offer. 🙂
