No Matter

March 24, 2015

I eagerly anticipated tonight’s post (another “Get Fresh” installment about the craft room!) all day…but it seems technology just doesn’t want to let that happen tonight. The photos I took of my painting project won’t upload, and it’s a bit difficult to tell you about a “before and after” sort of situation without “before and after” photos, you know.

No matter.

When I started this blog last week, I made a commitment to myself that I would write every single day for the first two weeks; as I tell my students, the only way to get better at something is to practice. Why would I let a little glitch ruin my night, or, worse,  get in the way of accomplishing my goal?

Like I mentioned before, starting something new always presents a learning curve, and in this moment, I’m feeling the “inexpertise” creeping in.

No matter.

I’m sure my computer will magically fix itself overnight, or I will find some awesome online help website, or someone will come to my rescue and these little kinks will work themselves out. It’s not that I expect luck or fate. I just know myself well enough to know that, when I really care about something, I just won’t accept failure. Thankfully, unlike the younger version of myself, I don’t feel the need to stay up all night to prove it.

In the meantime, I have a husband who is home from camp, a snuggly beagle ready for some cuddles, and a tummy full of a delicious dinner of Caprese Salad (one of my favorites).

I’m headed to soak up these blessings.

And guess what?

That goal? I’m still on track…because I’m about to hit “Publish.”


No matter.

let it go
