Strengths and Talents
I've been thinking quite a bit lately about personalities and why we choose certain career paths and hobbies. We all have different strengths and talents, and it's neat to step back and think about how people approach things differently. I was at a drawing group last night, and though I don't draw, I got roped into it anyway. We ended up having a huge discussion about how I plan out the animals I'm creating, and it was interesting to hear the different ways people would begin the process. For me, I just imagine what I want in my head and start sewing. Most times it works out, but sometimes I have to correct something or start over. For the artists I was with, they agreed they would start by sketching out the entire thing before ever touching a piece of fabric.
Lately, I've really been noticing a shift in both my girls' personalities. They are both developing a strong sense of self, and Poesy especially, is very particular about most things. I find myself stepping back and feeling a sense of awe as I think about their strengths and talents at this point in life, and wonder what the future holds for these two precious gals of mine. I hope they always do things that they truly love and that truly inspire them.
Little Miss Personality decided a few days ago that she NEEDED pink hair, so after a fail with a packet of Koolaid, hair chalk came to the rescue. The way she struts around with that pink hair confidence makes me so happy.
Love what you love, little one. Love who you are and keep feeling like you can conquer the world, because you totally can.
