The Artists Synchroblog (May) – The Artists Synchroblog is a group of bloggers who post every other month on the same topic, sharing our experience or perspective. On alternate months we undertake a Pinterest Project where we each take inspiration from a pinterest picture, create something (art, a meal, a DIY project, etc) and then post about it.
I’m excited to have been accepted into The Artists Synchroblog group! May’s Synchroblog topic is “WORDS HAVE MEANING.” So we are all posting about words that have meaning to us. Maybe a favorite quote, some words of wisdom, a poem, something that speaks to you.
I honestly didn’t know what to do on this… and I am a bit late to boot. But I did finally come up with a quote that fit perfectly.
“Mistakes are what makes success.”
I have three young girls. And there is nothing like learning how to have successes after mistakes than by watching my children. Riley (my oldest) is learning to play percussion this year. She gets really frustrated after just a few minutes of playing and messing up. Kate is learning to read better, and nothing is more frustrating than navigating all the “rules” and “exceptions” of the English language. Kiari is learning everything. Perhaps her frustrations are the funniest to us as she throws the BEST two-year-old tantrums complete with screaming and stomping feet.
I have had many careers in my short 36 years of life, jewelry being my most passionate one and is fraught with successes and perceived failures. I say perceived because those failures really are what have lead me to the successes that I have had. I have learned from each of them, even if the lesson learned was nothing more than, “Go to bed when you are tired, because if you don’t, a meltdown is almost certain.”
What about you? What are some of your favorite phrases? Why do you like them? I would love to hear about it.
