After giving myself the grace to make mistakes and learn and not worry about being perfect right now, my attitude has definitely changed. Instead of looking at things and seeing the flaws, I'm looking at things, seeing what I like and figuring out how to improve what I don't. For example, I have a couple of shirts that weren't the way I wanted them. So I have been looking at them and trying to figure out how to fix them. One shirt has just not come out the way I want it, so that one is now my test shirt. I will try my different techniques and things on that one. No judgement, no being upset because it's not the way I want it, just an okay, that didn't work, let's try something else. It is very freeing and allows me to just examine what is happening and not get caught up in how I feel about it.
To that end, a week or so ago I made a cup for myself, this one below.
