Courage

July 26, 2010

Oh Creative One! I heard Maya Angelou on the Iconoclasts television program this weekend. She feels that courage is the most important virtue because it is the virtue required to practice all other virtues consistently.

Courageous Creative One, this week I will don my sparkly fairy wings and wand and grant you courage. Courage to set limits with friends and family, “I’ve got some painting/sculpting/knitting/writing/whatever to do before bed. Can we chat about this tomorrow?” Courage to dive into that bit of work that nags at you and isn’t quite right. Courage to practice your art every day this week, no matter how tired and worn the day has made you -even if only for 10 minutes. Courage to express that oh-so-wonderfully-different way you see the world.
