Never waste a failure.

Never waste a failure.
I've had some artsy set backs this week. Feeling a bit blue at lost possibilities. My adjustment always comes in the remedy of creating. And so, I create...and find myself even lost in the process.
I had an idea..that after 3....4...9.. pieces never came to life. Because everybody needs a leg up every once in a while...
And so I tried again and again..and still I was not satisfied. 
And as I looked at all my discarded pieces I thought...what can I learn from this failure?
I had to step away to see it.
To see that failure is never a waste.
It's simply another opportunity to begin again,with more insight and understanding and growth. 
It helps us to see what we like and what we dont.
It pushes and it screams and knocks us to our knees
all for the purpose of becoming more.
...
and as for those artsy set backs..
It's all good,because tomorrow is another day and I will give it another go.

Feeling thankful.
Happy creating friends.

Fantastic attitude to bring to your work. In nature there is balance as the superhero always quotes to me. I try and remember it. xox
