I rarely ever respond or commit to social media challenges/projects. It’s not that I find these challenges to be unattractive- on the contrary, I’m inspired by the creations that come about from it. No, the reason is I’m terrified of failing. There, I said it. Also, I have a terrible tendency to on so many new things only to leave them unfinished.
But I was not feeling my usual self today. I was sick and had to stay in bed. I felt tired yet fearless for some reason so – I committed to the #The100DayProject (Read more about the challenge here). Every day from now (April 6) until July 16, 2015, I’ll be creating a sketch or drawing from my favorite reads and posting it on my Instagram account. The goal is to encourage creativity by, well, creating. One of the reasons I was convinced to go for it was that the focus was to cultivate community and to learn to trust the process – regardless of the final product. I am so excited for the next 100 days! After the first post, I had an uh-oh moment of dread. I have to keep reminding myself that it’s an exercise in iteration. One day at a time.
