R is for Realize Your Value #AtoZChallenge

I love encouraging others!

Since I love encouraging others so much, I’m sharing Creativity Memes for this year’s A to Z Blog Challenge. The quotes are from all over, but I took each photo with my iPhone. Here’s today’s featured letter:

R is for Realize Your Value

“If you’re starving for something, there are probably a lot of other people who need it too.” – Miranda July

I love this quote from Miranda July. I snagged it from an interview of hers I read recently and it really struck home with me because this is something I struggle with all the time!
Sure, I love creating things, but do they have any value? Are they worthwhile? Am I just being silly and selfish?
Every now and then, however, I’ll get some positive feedback. Whether it’s an Amazon review for one of my books, an email, a tweet, or even a comment to me in person, these little tibdbits are what keep me going! (By the way, the interview I linked to isn’t the one where I grabbed this quote from Miranda July, but it’s still a great interview!)
What about you? Do you feel like your creativity matters? Do you care if it helps other people or not? What keeps you going?

 

Follow me on Instagram & I’ll follow you back!

If you are on Instagram, I’d be delighted to follow you. Simply follow my photo feed (@TuiSnider) on Instagram and I’ll follow you back! Isn’t Instagram fun? I’ve gone from turning up my nose at the idea of cell phone pictures, to being an avid iPhone photographer. I even had my first gallery show last summer!

What is the April A to Z Blog Challenge?

Each April, bloggers from all over the world participate in the April A to Z blog challenge, and you can too. It’s a lot of fun and a great way to meet other bloggers.

To play along, all you do is make a blog post for each letter of the alphabet during April, then visit as many other bloggers as you can. In addition to my personal blog here, I’m also writing A to Z posts for the the Story Dam writing community. You can check those out by clicking here: Story Dam’s Writing Quotes & Encouragement
