i came across this on pinterest last night and all i can say is YES. good words. i've been a frustrated perfectionist my whole life & that really plagued me when i started scrapbooking. the best thing i ever learned was to let go of that ideal page in my head and to just go with the flow and see where i end up.
i still fight it, at times. i struggle with projects that won't do what i want them to, only to walk away and come back with a clearer head and let them be what THEY want to be. i throw away backgrounds because of misting experiments gone bad. i scramble to cover stamping mistakes. and every screw up teaches me something, and i'm thankful for that.
i know now what's good for me. i know how i work best. i grab a photo, i gather some of my favorite products, and i see where they take me. sometimes i peek at pinterest for a little push in the right direction, but i'm open to wandering off the road.
if i could only learn to apply this to life in general - all would be good. ;) in the meantime, i'm working on it/ happy thursday!
