Remember you are here, breathing.
Don't give up. Making and creating is hard work.

Invite your anxiety into the room. Let it help you write, let it help you create, let it help you think of ideas
I didn't want to face how much that experience had hurt me but sometimes in the things that hurt us, it's also hard to face that there was some beauty there.
You've got to pinpoint what's underneath your creative anxiety.
You're probably going to cry and it's okay... I felt so vulnerable having to write this spiritual memoir, having to write thing that were hard to write about.

Take your creative anxiety and bring it into the room with you. You’ll find your vulnerability, you’ll find your humanity – the thing that connects all of us to each other. When you bring that into your creative process, you can actually create from this very honest and authentic place. And that’s what we identify with.
You are here. Breathing.
Somewhere between your collarbone and your ribcage, how your voice becomes a stream that always finds its river
You’ve got to pinpoint what’s underneath your creative anxiety.
For some of us, starting small is getting out of bed today. If that's your start small, then celebrate it.
Send one scary email today. A scary email is sending an email to someone who has no reason to say yes to what I'm asking or who will certainly reject me. If you got one, send it. Start and start small.
