My Art made it to the first round!

I am so excited to have a few of my artworks make it into the First Round of this International Competition! I told myself I would get my Art out there in new places, and in new ways. It is scary. It’s hard not to get emotional, or personal about my artwork. Each piece has been developed and poured out from my being. Some of it willingly other parts coaxed, dragged, sent back for a do-over but ‘we’ have done this dance of creating together. Nobody can step in for me, take this one dance while I sit and watch. If so it then is their piece. 
I can’t resist checking the status before a deadline. I am checking if they actually received it, will there be a notation it was rejected, an error in the application, or something? No, nothing dramatic, just that deadline listed. And so I go about my next thing. Likely to check again in another day or two. (or an hour or two.)
Putting yourself out there is a challenge, but in the end, the growth is worth it.
What have you challenged yourself with lately? I would love to hear in the comments below.
