Today my phone told me that it was full up - out of storage. So, time to delete some videos. And actually, sorting through my videos to find goodies to post on my brand new Paint Through It network has been on my to-do list.
The very first video (worth saving) was one I made in a class I took on creating live videos. I did a challenge as a part of the class - I had to poll my Facebook audience and see what they wanted to know, then discuss it in a Facebook live video.
The video I made is me talking about mistakes that beginning painters make. What really strikes me is that I was such a beginner at making videos!
I'm still learning, but I've come a long way. And guess what? This video is far from perfect, but it still has value. And that is just like a beginner's painting, or any painting along your journey; you may not love it, but it still has value. YOU painted it. Maybe you enjoyed the process, maybe you worked through something, maybe you learned something. The value may just be in the experience. It's all good, and it's all a process.
Allow yourself to be a beginner, allow yourself to crawl before you can walk.
