Today I love my perseverance and determination! I had a very difficult time getting into this Year of the Horse art I was doing, because I hadn’t drawn horses in so long! It was really difficult and they just weren’t coming out!!! I found myself becoming daunted and cranky. But once I identified my frustration and difficulties and their source, I gave myself a breather and then, determined, leapt into it with both feet the next day. I love that I gave myself that acceptance, to be temporarily cranky, that I was able to accept why I was going through the difficulty, that I was able to give myself that break, and that I was able to then just DO it. There have been several instances in my life where I have done this and I am grateful and love myself for just DOING that thing that needs doing, because I know it needs to be done. I am grateful that I CAN have faith in myself to do this. And I love that I am making a habit of it. <3!!
