I suppose you can say that I am cautious. There are days when I feel that I am clear as to what I want to accomplish, but more so than not, I step slowly and carefully to move ahead. I suppose this comes from years of trial and error and from my younger days of running head strong into something without thinking it through all the way.
There is really nothing wrong with that, as more so than not, doing something on the fly brings us to a place of new discoveries and broadens our horizons. But somehow as we get older, we are less inclined to take the same risks, as we have been stung by acting on our whims before and we are looking for something that is perhaps has a more predictable outcome.
Whatever the case, I find that I am moving slower with the pattern that I am working on right now. I know how I want it to turn out, and I have a pretty clear thought in my mind of what it will look like. It will, however take a bit of time and care to create it if I want it to look as I envision it. It isn’t something that I feel that I can rush through and still have good results. So I am moving ahead with care.
I may skip a day here and there with writing while this is in development. I would prefer to get a bit further along in the process before I begin to share the results with you. Part of that is because I find already that I am changing things along the way, seeing that what I originally created would be best done differently. I know you all understand this.
So with that said, again I will have a short post today. I hope that in the end that you all will feel that this design will merit the extra thought and time I am taking to create it. In my own head, I think it is kind of cool, and if it turns out even close to what I want it to be, I will be happy.
I wish you all a good day today. It is another beautiful day here in Nova Scotia. I must admit that I slipped away yesterday and took my car and washed it. It needed it after the long winter and it felt good to be out in the fresh air for at least a bit.
I have much to do today. But most importantly, I think I will be having fun. Seeing things come to life is probably the best part of the process and I am excited about seeing how things will develop. I know I will enjoy every moment.
I hope you all get a chance to do something that you enjoy doing today. Even if you steal away for a short time for a change of pace. It is amazing how much it can elevate your mood and boost your energy. Remember that you need to take time to do the things you enjoy every day in order to have a happier life. It’s the only one you have.
Have a wonderful Wednesday!
