I am participating in #Trust30, an online initiative and 30-day writing challenge that encourages you to look within and trust yourself.
Every artist was first an amateur.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson
To be an artist, one has to find beauty in ordinary things. Find ten things of great beauty in the landscape that surrounds you. For example, crumpled sheets on your bed in the morning, the small of coffee making its way around a busy office.

I thoroughly enjoyed this challenge; I saw things I wouldn't have noticed otherwise, and I am so thankful I didn't miss them. Give it a try; you won't be sorry!
