The 2016 resolution

The 2016 resolution....

Since a very young age,  I always heard people saying to me how lucky I am, that I have so many talents, that I am a fast a learner, that I am creative etc...  even though logically I know that some of that is true, but through all my life something always blocked my creation, my artistic expressions, my performance never went all the way I wanted it  .
I love art, my life would be meaningless without art, so why I am not doing art as much as I want ???
here is the answer because I am terrified of failure ..... there is a quote that says " Failure is not the opposite of success, its part of success " but if i am afraid from failure how can i try to succeed ?

I grew up in a society where failure was something to be very ashamed of, a very judgmental society, that is how we start to avoid trying new things in order to avoid failure therefore avoid shame .
On the other hand art is not considered like the 5 stars career ' a doctor or engineer etc... ' but deep inside of me I knew I can and will succeed in the path that I have chosen which i did .

But since couple of years I entered into a dilemma life has been hard on me, I lost my mom, my inspiration, my life, my vision.....,My art stopped, suddenly i felt blank then I became a mom ..... and life smiled at me ,and I sang again for the first time in many years it was one of the first form of art expressions that started in me again....
Art is a healer, art is a way, no matter what, we should never stop creating and painting, and doing music no matter what form of art it is that we like to do  because it will give us a happy soul, it will help us dream, live and love.

So for this year's resolution it will be
to create more art in each and every form of it
to face the fear of failure
to try to share more of my art
to start dreaming again because dreams do come true

Don't hesitate to share your new year's resolutions in the comments below and keep dreaming and creating .

Happy New Year


  1. Can't wait to see your new artwork :)

  2. Hi Maria. Thank you for sharing your resolutions. I just found your blog. So sorry to hear about your loss, and about the challenge of your fear of failure. About 5 years ago I went through counseling for anxiety and discovered that fear of failure and fear of being unloved were 2 core values of mine, causing the anxiety. I have done well learning the journey to challenge fear of failure, but rebuilding your core values is not an easy thing. Best of luck to you in your 2016 resolutions to create. I think that is a fabulous idea. I will continue to follow your blog. Peace.

  3. Dear Tony, thank you for your lovely message, and for sharing in return your journey of self searching.
    I agree with you that rebuilding your core values is not an easy thing, but it's not impossible, as a matter of fact nothing is impossible in life, the word itself says it " i m possible ". Because the moment we realize the problem and where we want to go from there , we have a plan and a choice. If we don't know where we want to go we will never go to nowhere, but if we know where we want to go will find a way to reach our destination.
    Good luck .
