Today is a different kind of reflection, perhaps because I have some mileage now. Some days, I’ll be kind to myself, and remember that building something that’s sustainable and has never before existed will take time and patience...time that is needed for me to learn, create, and adapt the right way.
But the truth is that most days, I struggle with a vicious inner dialogue: “That’s it? This is all you’ve managed to get done?”…as I tear apart and deconstruct every move that I could have and should have done better or more efficiently.
And it’s in these very moments when I find myself reconnecting with the childhood wonderment that has driven me for most of my life. Testing the boundaries of what works and what doesn’t so I can rebuild. Removing the fear of being wrong to embrace the teachings of a new experience. Satisfying a curiosity that can never really be cured.
Who am I kidding...they're just fancy mind games.
Funny where life can take you when you allow yourself to delight in the unknown.
