Hope the first few days of the new year have treated you well. I got to ring in the new year from the comforts of my bed due to a lovely cold... but it was perfect. I am just now beginning to feel human, and I am so excited to get started in this new time. I decided that in 2013 I am going to take the fear out of failure. I am just going to do, without over thinking every little thing. Here are just a few of the things I am going to apply this to.
1. List some vintage clothing I have been hoarding in the shop.
2. Make a dress from a pattern.
3. Be confident in what I do/make.
4. Hem, take in, and(or) restyle every thrift I have in the almost basket.
These things are so simple and yet I over think and fear every little thing about them. Who cares if I don't sell a thing, or adding to my existing shop is the wrong outlet? What does it matter if I ruin a pattern or waste some fabric? I can buy some more and it won't be a waste... I am sure it will be a learning experience. And who cares what people think about what I do/make? I am done with the worry. It is not my problem, it is theirs. I never pay much for my thrift finds, so I need to just let go of the anxiety and do my best. If I ruin something, it honestly just doesn't matter!
