joy thief

yup

i’ve been stewing a little over here in some jealousy juices. first, a friend made some jewelry that is so amazing that i just watched her work zoom to another level. second, i heard the great news that lint & buttons is getting press. then, the whatifs started sneaking in my ears. you know the ones. they whisper: “what if you’re not good enough?” “what if you’re not original enough?” “what if nobody likes you{r stuff}?

ah, the anxiety. i’d argue with those blasted whatifs, but there’s no point. they’ll just come up with another question and another question and pull me off track from actually doing something. then i wouldn’t get anywhere. {i’d be lying if i said i’m not currently feeling anxious, but i’m trying to fight through it by doing stuff. there’s no better cure, as far as i’m concerned.}

so i’m off to do stuff. and today’s mantra needs to be more like this:
