Day eleven already, it feels like I just started this journey. Though I must confess it is getting easier to do a quick blog post at the end of the day and sitting down to do some journaling is also becoming more of a habit.
Not that I didn’t journal before, but it was mostly at night on the couch while watching TV with one eye. I feel I’m now more conscious about the journaling … and of course I get to use glue and stuff.
I was really happy about myself today, because I figured out how to use the laser in conjunction with printed elements. A lot of trial and error and google searches were needed for that. Still learning everyday!!!
I also came to the realization, while writing, that I don’t give myself enough credit. I tend to look to others and compare myself to them. Obviously the people I compare myself to are people that I look up to. People that are awesome artists, amazing writers and leather workers… and inevitably I fail… I’m not as fast, I’m not as amazing, I have so much still to learn.
I feel I should stop comparing myself to those people and just look at where I am and what I’ve accomplished. Yes I have so much more to learn and yes, I may not be that fast, but I’m getting there, bit by bit, day by day.
And it’s true, you only fail when you stop trying!
So I’m not going to stop trying, I’m going to hang in there and pat myself on the shoulder once in a while. It’s time to start looking at all the things I have achieved!
Hope to see you again tomorrow, Have a lovely evening,
