Spoiler alert: this probably isn’t.
I’ve committed to making something new every day, which I’m truly happy about. With this level of activity, generating this much raw material, by spring I’ll have a whole bunch of little stuff I can choose from to develop into something bigger, and current project goals include books, set lists, and an online jewelry store. Yay!
I’m sure there’s something you’re working on, something larger that you’re taking baby steps toward. I’m also sure that you know how some days you feel on fire – inspired, brilliant, and focused.
Then there are those other days. Days when that something you’re making might not be the most amazing thing, it might just be pretty good. Or maybe not even that. Maybe it flat-out sucks.
Today I’m working on a bracelet and want to add a wire-wrapped bead to it. (If that means nothing to you, don’t worry. You’re not required to know jewelry techniques to read this blog. 🙂 )
I’ve gone through multiple feet of silver wire trying to get it right, and still the bead looks like Sam wrapped it. Lumpy, poky, and decidedly not pretty. (No offense Sam! You can’t help it that you don’t have opposable thumbs!)
I’m having one of those flat-out-sucks days, and that’s okay. Tomorrow will probably be better, and maybe I’ll even come up with something I want to share with you here. If not, I can always share photos of beautiful things I had nothing to do with creating, like this:
Amazing is great when it happens, but putting the time in day in and day out is amazing in its own way, too.
