Don’t Fret…Just Start

Each morning when we wake, we put our legs over the side of our bed, plant our feet on the floor, and prepare to take our first steps. We do not worry about having all the skills necessary to navigate into the next room. We simply start. We do not spend time contemplating what might happen during the course of the day, we start. I suggest that is also how you could approach your art practice… start. You don’t worry about what you might lack…you start. Don’t overthink things…just start.

Consider working “like a dog pants” – without thought, without worry, without planning. Do it because you have to, do it because it is like breathing, do it because there is nothing you would rather do. Find your natural rhythm to do it, let your instinct help you know what is your right way to do it.

Don’t fret…just start.
