Do you Struggle with Negative Self-Talk when you Create?

If you are anything like me, your inner critic or 'negative nancy' voice can be really loud sometimes. So I thought I'd externalize that internal voice by having a puppet made to personify my inner nay-sayer! So introducing my creative nemesis, "DesdaMOANa"!


She is the perfect representation of my negative voice! She will be showing up as the 'villain' in some of my tutorials, and saying out loud, some of the thoughts that flood my head while I paint. Thoughts like: "This isn't working. What am I thinking? I suck at this! This looks silly! I can't do this. I'm not good enough."

These kinds of thoughts aren't limited to only creating... I'm sure you've experienced this kind of stinkin' thinkin' in various scenarios in life. I would love for you to see the video I made with Dez... I'm proud of it as it took some deft editing to hide my lack of ventriloquistic talent!! https://youtu.be/zQVb3gI3EvM
