Fake It Mentality

“Fake it till you make it.” It’s a quote I heard in a freshman art class. I was completely lost and most of my art work was a stab at the dark. When I heard that quote, I immediately latched on to the┬áconcept. It was a perfect, I could pretend I knew what I was doing and for years I lived with just that mentality. Not just in art but in many areas where I had passion but felt that I was completely inadequate to do the job.

Problem with this method is that is fools no one but yourself. It got me into a rut, because I ┬áled myself to believe that I was a fraud at what I do. I lost my drive for why I began to do things in the beginning. I couldn’t have gotten where I’m at if I wasn’t capable of my actions in the first place.

I’m not capable either without God. It’s by his grace I have the talents I possess and it undermines him when I fall back on the “fake it” mentality. I don’t want to fake my abilities. I want to put the small abilities that I do possess into the hands of my creator and use my passion to serve him as the driving force behind my actions. To allow him to expand what little talent I do have into a real tangible gift. Sometimes we are blessed with great amounts of a certain talent/s, other times we are blessed with small amounts of talent and a whole lot of heart. We don’t have to be the best, we just have to release what we do have and be willing to step out and be a little uncomfortable. If God has given the ability, the desire, and the calling, he can more than easy fill the gaps of what we lack.

I’m excited to finally get my engagement photos back. Anna did a beautiful job. Funny enough we’re mostly kissing or staring at each other in all of them. I’ll post a few of my favorite.
