Begin at the Beginning
Thursday, November 18, 2010
What is so difficult about beginnings? Well, for one, it's scary to meet new people, it's hard to know if I'll keep it up and finally, beginnings may be easier for some than others. For me, beginnings are easy, but as I move along, I get bored or disenchanted or discouraged. This makes me think of all the things I begin and never finish. Like that beautiful handmade Swedish rug I started in the 70's. I never finished it even though I kept it for more than 20 years. There was a part of me that probably was a little afraid of completing the project because then it would be judged by myself and others. This time I want to break through the limits and judgements I place on myself so I can become stronger. When you are strong you probably don't judge yourself as harshly.
