Points of Two - Week Fifteen...

Hello and welcome to week Fifteen of the Points of Two Project!  I was thinking this week about how much I want things to "just work" on the first attempt.  I am teaching myself how to sew and needle felt and as I select projects  and give them a try, I want it to work on the first try.  I know this is not reasonable and as I keep working at it I will get better!  I sent this quote by Benjamin Franklin to Kira this week to encourage her and as a reminder to myself.  It is our focus for this week:

“I didn't fail the test, I just found 100 ways to do it wrong.”

Be sure to check out Kira's blog to see her page!

Have a  blessed day!

I wish I would have read this and learned I didn't fail the test way long ago in my life's journey. Perfection was so elusive and I never realized there is no perfection. That everything we do is amazing. Thank you for sharing this wisdom. Happy journaling...

We all probably need to remember this and to focus on what we can and do achieve and not on our "failings" which may not actually be failings at all but steps in the learning process. Thanks for reminding me of this fact.

You both have beautiful pages and I can totally relate to the sentiment, not wanting to fail, perhaps not knowing all the things I am ...because it's easy to focus on what we fail to do... very good food for thought. :)
