“The universe is so well balanced that the mere fact that you have a problem also serves as a sign that there is a solution.” Steve Maraboli
A few weeks ago, I started designing and making a new item to sell in my online shop. I was really excited, as I had this great idea in my head of what I wanted it to look like, but could I get it to work in practice? Could I heck!
I tried and failed, tried some more….and failed again! I wasted lots of material, then got super fed up and frustrated and put the half made item in a drawer in my workroom. I’ve been ignoring it ever since.
But, this morning, I tentatively opened the drawer again and decided to give it another shot. This time I had a plan and instead of winging it and hoping for the best, I took a more methodical approach by designing a pattern first. Easier said than done, only this time I was not giving up!
In the end, I made 3 patterns before I got the design and shape I wanted. I’ve now just cut out my material from my pattern and I’m ready to finish the piece. Fingers crossed, it’s going to look fab!
Day 170, Reason 170: Today I am so glad and grateful that I persevered, found a solution and didn’t give up!
A valuable lesson learnt, methinks!
