A moment of panic goes through me as Sunday gets closer -
a craft event at Camp Kilo that I have a table at to sit and show off my art work.
Why the panic?
Well what if people don’t like my art and designs, if they don’t buy them -
if all the effort I’ve put in over the last few months falls flat and I bomb out.
What if I go and everyone loves my designs, thinks I am an amazing artist and I sell out!!!
And then again there could be a mixture of the two!.
I can sit in this space blogging my differing minds and in the past I’d quite happily run my head round
in loops and chaos,
questioning and worrying about the what ifs.
The question I now ask is “Can I do anything about the outcome, the what ifs, are they in my control?”
So why spend my energy and worry over something I can’t at this moment in time do anything about!
So instead I become present - I remind myself Sunday will be a great experience
I imagine it happening and being amazing fun
as I put my art out there….
Slow steady breath, lots of preparation, heaps of help and I’m good to go and do my thing!!
We all have that voice in us, that worries, is anxious, panics and plays over ALL the scenarios possible
usually the negative ones.
If you can catch it next time
rhythmic and smooth steady breaths
and after a few minutes those thoughts will calm,
and you’ll see and feel different…
Love to see you Sunday!
