I had to remember why I chose to create a tarot deck in the first place. Having people connect with the images is nice. Selling thousands of copies would be awesome…definitely. Having a parade in my hometown thrown in my honor of how awesome I am would be cool – ok, ok, that’s probably a little grandiose. But at the essence of the project, I’m creating the deck I want to see, that I wished was on the market when I first started reading tarot with images that I could relate to. Period.
I had to remember “WHY?”
In this weird age of social media we’re living through, it’s easy to fall into the trap of comparing ourselves to the lives of others.
If you ever find yourself questioning your value, comparing your life and accomplishments to others, pause. Take a moment, a couple of deep breaths and a sip of water wouldn’t hurt – rum if you’re into it – and remember the big question “Why.”
Remember why you’re doing what you’re doing and keep on keeping on.
“Creativity takes courage.” – Henri Matisse
