Lately I’ve been pretty down on myself. I have all this enthusiasm and drive to work on my children’s book but I don’t believe I have the ability. I’m grasping at an idea of what I want it to look like but I know I don’t have the capabilities in Illustrator or Photoshop to do it. And I’m not sure I can learn how.
I’ve never felt so unsure of myself. Never. And it’s kind of depressing.
It blew me away because it’s exactly what I need to hear right now. Even if I can’t make what I want, it’s the “what I want” that’s important. And if I make a whole lot of something now (even if it’s all crap) eventually I’ll be able to make something wonderful.
So thanks Justine, for giving me the assurance that the crap I’m about to make in no way portends my future or what I’m ultimately capable of producing. That is exactly what I needed to hear right now.
