Heart Petal Flowers and Valuing You

Thursday’s post arrived late. I goofed on the time. Now on to today’s post.

pink heart petal boom to remind you to know your worth

I had this heart petal flower in a repaint pile. I painted this in blue for faith in you but that’s in the repaint pile.

This week the podcasts, blog posts and a few instagram feeds are all on the subject of knowing your worth. There’s imposter syndrome. What do I charge? Am I good enough? How can I publish a best selling book? The book one, the Kute Blackson episode surprised me. I almost forgot about it. Just now I can hear Kute’s voice. Just write the book. You don’t need permission. I was deep in my work and it hit me. Your work is good. You can do this. You have skills. Even if you are a beginner with a million questions, love your work. All that matters is that you pick up the paint brush and PAINT.

Today I scanned everything. I fixed the orange flower. The T-shirt project is looking good. My point in sharing my work and this blog is that we all have a book in us. The question is are you going to write it? Words again from Kute Blackson. What a great episode. I feel silly at times posting advice when I’m learning as I go. Once again I appreciate your kind feedback.
