I’ve been wanting to do this post for a while…but other things came up! Mainly, I got sick and just couldn’t concentrate long enough to do it.
The image on the left, above, is a drawing I did of my son a few years ago – spur of the moment. He was two or three years old. The one on the right, the main subject of this post, I did in one of my art classes in high school. It was either ninth or tenth grade.
We had this project to do, using only a number two pencil and shading. The time came to hand it in, and it wasn’t finished. But, I handed it in anyway. What was I to do? My teacher graded it, as well as everyone else’s projects and returned them. I got an A-, even though I wasn’t it wasn’t finished. I honestly sat there, stunned, for a few minutes.
After a few minutes, I walked up to the teacher, project in hand, and asked her why I had gotten an A-. Her response? “I thought that was the way it’s supposed to be.”
I walked away…
The point is…nobody’s perfect, nothing is probably ever going to be “perfect”. The only one who knows it’s not complete, or “perfect”, is you. Nobody else knows any different…unless you tell them.
We’ve all got a lot going on, a lot on our brains/heads right now. Thoughts are swirling…I know, I’m right there too. All we can do, is the best we can…take a deep breath and move on.
hope you have a great day!
thanks for stopping by!!
