Fraud

“I have written eleven books, but each time I think, ‘Uh oh, they’re going to find out now. I’ve run a game on everybody and they’re going to find me out.” -Maya Angelou

“The exaggerated esteem in which my lifework is held makes me very ill at ease. I feel compelled to think of myself as an involuntary swindler.” -Albert Einstein

Feel like a fraud some/most days?

It’s okay. I do too. We all do. C’mon, we’re using our imaginations, playing pretend all the time! What do you expect? We’re bound to feel that way.

But if we don’t take action in spite of those feelings, then we are frauds. Because we’re wasting our gifts. Our talents. Not answering the call.

We’re being fraudulent.

Let’s not let that happen.

Go make your art.
