It's all a matter of perspective

When I started pottery classes, I found myself lamenting over how many things went wrong on the path to creating a pot. For a perfectionist, high control personality, it could be incredibly frustrating. Then one day, I changed my perspective and found that this made all the difference! Instead of lamenting all the time when something went wrong, I began to instead celebrating the times when it went right.

Today, I see a beautiful pot as a miracle. It survived all the different steps and challenges of the creation process - and therefore there is a purpose for it. You could say that Marie Kondo has infected my view of my creations - each one brings me joy.

Now I just need to bring this perspective to other parts of my life - I am sure my family would be thrilled to see it!
