making choices





Embracing the unknown is part of letting go. Letting go of the idea of perfection, of control, and sometimes feeling like there are no options. Sometimes it can prevent me from cutting into a special piece of fabric that I've saved or making drastic design decisions. Reckless embellishment often helps. Also, recently I came across this thought:

"I discovered I always have choices and sometimes it's only a choice of attitude." -- Judith M. Knowlton

Too much choice is a danger to creativity. Not being able to make one's choice.

Trudge on !!

Great little post and I love your circles. It's easy for me to "lose" my voice but it never really gets lost, does it? It's in there waiting to be rediscovered and turned loose! It's that circle of support that helps it grow.
