Paula Eder, author of “These Critical Voices Are Driving Me Crazy!” states “Imagine yourself trying to go to sleep and these undermining voices keep going around and around in your head. They undercut you at every turn, not letting up at night and following you around all day too.”
Again, use your imagination or maybe you have had this experience
A friend or family member that constantly demeans your work, or how you exhibit at shows or any number of nit picking things others can say that destroy your self-esteem. Many times they are said with the intention of being helpful but fall short.
If you are already listening to these voices, criticism from others only adds to the frustration we all feel at one time or another.
Here are five affirmations that will guide you into the meaningful, satisfying and empowering life you are meant to lead.
1. “I deserve this”
2. “Who I listen to is my choice”
3. “I will slow down and listen to my inner more positive self”
4. “I will explore my thoughts and feelings to weed out the self-defeating ones ”
5. “My time is precious, I will use it to uphold my positive beliefs and actions”
Now there is help at the click of a button…http://bit.ly/Y4fbEP Paula writes

Validate yourself for catching these messages
Eder has included in “These Critical Voices are Driving Me Crazy!” “7 ways that developing successful self-talk builds your relationship with yourself and enhances your life.”
Last but not least Paula asks this question,
“What is Your Voice of Reason (a.k.a. Your Adult)?
There are 4 chapters in this e-book that will walk you from self-defeating thoughts from either yourself or others to a self-confident person that knows how to “slow down for a moment, let your self be quiet and listen to the messages you are giving yourself.”
Your life and your time are precious, use them in a positive way that benefits you instead of pulling you down.

My challenge this past week was to take a drawing class with a well known artist and teacher – Amanda Carder Lovett. I have taken a class with Amanda before but still I felt a little up tight because she was teaching a subject I was not totally comfortable with. I tried to figure out the problem and came up with some answers that I want to share with you.
Sometimes the challenge
is not feeling creative in a room full of strangers. Added to that you can’t help but sneak a peek at the person sitting next to you to see how much better they are than you. And to add even more stress, the teacher is teaching something that requires you to step out of your comfort zone. Ever been there? I have, many times and I want to show you 3 ways to make the challenge less stressful so your creativity can shine through the challenge.
1. Become familiar with other artists in the group. Most hostess have a time of coffee and pastries before the class starts. As you gather you talk and learn about the skill level there, no need to peek over the shoulder any more.
2. Surely, you’re very interested in the subject being taught or you would not have signed up and paid your fee. You may not have actually learned this skill yet, keep an open mind.
3. Have all the supplies the teacher has recommended you bring to class. If you’re interested in learning her way of drawing and painting, then learn to use the products she uses. This makes it easier when you are back in the studio to duplicate what she taught in class.
Have you ever wanted to learn to draw and paint with watercolors? But, felt you didn’t have the time to devote to learning this skill?
I want to recommend to you Tips and Tales for Artists. This course includes 52 high-level training videos and they are just an e-mail away. Now’s your chance and this course is free. Just go to bit.ly/14bq8ey and get started right now!
