Tiny Brave Fawns, Adventurous Artistic Pursuits, & Gratitude

Something I’ve learned, relearned, and have taken to heart this year:

When it comes to art, always strive to be brave enough to share it.

Whether it’s writing, art, music, … photography just share it.

It may be something you are proud of – or something that makes you cringe, maybe even something that you think is complete crap by your own standards – just share it anyway.

Throw it out in the universe. Some of the poems I’ve written that I haven’t been that proud of or didn’t spend much time on end up being the works that people respond most to … showing time and time again that people see things differently.

Where I see flaws and tackiness, someone else may see perfection and loveliness. In the end, it all cancels out and just becomes one more tiny way of connecting with others, stringing together words people can use to grasp at meanings and emotions that are difficult to articulate in life.

I’d really like to thank WordPress Discover for featuring my poem “emotions – silencing;” in their Editors’ Picks selection. This year I made the commitment to participate in all writing prompts and challenges to discipline and improve my skills with writing poetry and anything artistic. So far I have been able to keep true to this commitment. Some days my writing is on fire, other days … I struggle to even get anything out there – but I’m grateful that you have shared this poem so that I have the chance to meet through my art other people who may relate to whatever I share.

To all of my new followers, thank you for joining the adventurous tiny artistic pursuits of Tiny Fawns!

  1. You have no idea how timely your post is. The belief I normally have in myself is in short supply today and I have been struggling to put words on paper. Thanks for this great reminder!

    • Yes! Sometimes after sharing something, I’ll go back and read it thinking, wow, why did I even share this? I don’t like it – and then others will come along and share what they find intriguing or even beautiful about it. For years I’ve struggled with this, but this year, I’ve decided ABSOLUTELY NEVER AGAIN, I’ll just share it all and see how it unfolds, hahah. Anyway, I wish you the best of luck and I’ll be subscribing to keep up with your writing endeavors! Thanks for reading and commenting. 🙂

      • I really love your attitude, and you are so right!! We are our own worst critic sometimes, at least I know I am, and we shouldn’t be so hard on ourselves. Thank you so much for your encouragement and inspiration! I am super happy I discovered you and am looking forward to all the great posts to come! 🙂

  2. I absolutely agree – sharing sometimes help give your a different view and and you can learn something new from your creation that you didn’t expect:)
