My First Hater

7

Jan, 2017

Today I received my first piece of hate mail.

With a fake name and no return address, I can’t respond to him privately.

So I thought I’d write to him here – since it’s clear that he follows my work.

Dear Mr Hater,

Firstly, I’d like to thank you for taking the time to read my work.

As a new writer, it means so much to me that someone is reading and listening and thinking about my work.

Secondly, please don’t waste any more of your precious energy on hating. It poisons you and…

Oops, I bet you didn’t intend on this outcome…

Your words fueled my reserves to keep on creating and to keep on having a voice.

Thirdly, I’ll quote the wise words of Elizabeth Gilbert in Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear. “If people misunderstand what you’ve created, don’t sweat it. And what if people absolutely hate what you’ve created? What if people attack you with savage vitriol, and insult your intelligence, and malign your motives, and drag your good name through the mud? Just smile sweetly and suggest – as politely as you possibly can – that they go make their own fucking art.”

Lastly, my website is not the place for you.

But the internet is a really big place and there are so many sites where I bet you could feel really welcome.

I urge you to go find those places.

Go find your own people.

And may you find your peace there.

On Age & Getting Old

A random man on a dance floor helped me get over myself and taught me the important lesson of getting over the ridiculous concept of age defining my value.

Eclipse Me La Luna

If you’re listening La Luna, please eclipse me anytime. I trust you always have my back and we are co-creating the path I need to be on.

Pursuing Pleasure on the Full Moon

Pursuing pleasure doesn’t come easily, so I encouraged the growth of my new pleasure habit by asking daily: “What small thing will bring me pleasure today?”

Fear of Failure and letting it all go

For the last Dark Moon intention for 2017, I decided to end with a bang. I decided to meet my fear and let it go… I’m letting go of my fear of failure.
