July 08, 2013 - Accepting failure as progress

Just a heads up, I am restructuring these posts a little, I want to post the wall pieces under the same heading as the as worn photos, so the piece below was made July 07, worn July 08, posted July 08.  Not sure if this is more or less confusing, but I feel like you can see the transformation a little better.  Maybe it takes the excitement out of it?  Removes anticipation?  The pieces I made today (which will be posted tomorrow with images of me wearing them) are probably my least favorite so far, and I think because of exhaustion, I have been having a harder time configuring the wall pieces in a gratifying way.  But today I decided that I need to accept tiny failures, which exist only in my own brain anyway, and move forward without dwelling.  This pushing through towards the next piece is important to maintain momentum and not get all gummed up over making each piece some masterpiece.  There will inevitably be a range of good and mediocre, and probably horrid pieces that come out of this, but that is still part of the learning process and failures are just as important as triumphs.
