Henry's quote certainly got me to thinking about my own work rather it be photography, knitting, weaving or any of my other endeavors. I enjoy learning to do new things and quite often once I have acquired a new skill rather than staying with it and becoming more proficient I am on to the next thing. The problem with this comes in when I see other's work, I compare my own and it falls short. They put in the work while I am on to something else and then I wonder why mine is not as good. I want to learn to accept myself and my "butterfly" nature and appreciate what I do accomplish. My desire to is be my own champion and appreciate what I do create instead of judging my efforts so harshly.
Often I feel as though my words to myself are the waves rushing on the rocks....harsh...Learning to be gentle and kind to one's self can be so much harder than being kinder to others....
Hugs and blessings,
