Pretty Little Things

Creative Queendom

I’ve been feeling frustrated creatively for the longest time.

I’ve always liked design and all things pretty but I’ve never ever been able to express myself that way. Maybe I’ve been conditioned for the longest time to always go for things that are practical, i.e, pursuits that will bring in money, a condo, cash and a 9-5 career. That to me is just plain boring. I don’t want to lead my entire life boxed up in a cubicle. I want to be able to pursue things that I’m interested in, that I feel strongly passionate about.

Whenever I look at a really great picture, design or jewelry piece, I thought to myself, “Hey I could do that!” But what’s stopping me? Most of the time, it’s fear. The fear of failure, the fear that I’ll look stupid, the fear that I lack professional training in these areas and the fear that I’m not creative enough.

For the longest time, I’ve been sitting around my ass worrying about the fear than actually doing something. On some nights, I’ll be kept awake thinking of all the fantastic things that I could have done. Hence, I’ve dedicated this blog to chronicle my journey to creative queendom. Sitting around is not getting me anywhere. I must start doing something.
