It’s a choice

Whether or not things happen for a reason, they happen. We can choose to let them make us stronger. “What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.”  I feel it goes a bit deeper than that. I believe we allow it to make us stronger. I don’t think that strength just happens on its own. That choice comes from personal strength. We each have our own ideas of where that strength comes from, according to our own experiences. It’s there, whether or not you feel it.

It’s been one of those weeks where I haven’t been satisfied with anything I’ve drawn. Until today. Not that I’m a perfectionist; I gave up perfectionism a long time ago. Every creative person has a time when their work truly stinks.

Today, after about five sheets of paper went into my scrap pile, I finally turned out this one. I’m calling it ‘Wings and Petals’. Coming up with a name for my drawings can be as exasperating as trying to turn out a drawing that’s worth posting. Yes, I did say I’m not a perfectionist. 🙂
