Let Go of Expectations

The message in this page is for me. I want to remember these words from time to time.
We all dream so much, have many ideas and plans. I too dream a lot but when it comes to putting them into reality, -I procrastinate, am filled with fear and so on and on.
The reason is very simple. Along with my dreams I also give birth to very high expectations. Expectations shatter my confidence, then rises the thought that I'm not good enough and finally I lock up my dreams within my heart.
Nowadays I try to let go of my expectations, only then I can create without fear. Still, some days it is hard but I know nothing lasts forever, be it good or bad. So I try to embrace the good days and create as much as I can on such days.
How is it for you? Everyone has good and bad days. What affects you in not being creative?

This page was done as part of my thoughts about a friend of mine who is going through a tough time now.
"Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, it is about learning to dance in the rain."
I don't know the source of this quote but I'd to add it here as right now these words are so meaningful in her life.

Linking this with other artists works at PPF and Art Journal Everyday
