Day 100: YES to the journey 🥳
Hello! I can hardly believe it, but it’s already Day 100 of #The100DayProject!
The other day, I wrote about how my own personal project had gone totally off the rails. I set out to create a tarot deck and instead fell in love with watercolors. I didn’t make a single tarot card. A younger version of me would have considered that – or worse, myself – a failure. But the wiser me celebrates the wisdom and beauty in the project allowing me to follow my curiosities. To go beyond the parameters of what I was supposed to do and instead do what my heart wanted to do.
And look: if the project facilitator can go wildly off course, so can you. However you may be looking at or judging your project – the number of days you completed, the number of days you missed, the number of likes you got – there’s nothing wrong with those metrics. But a better question might be: are those the metrics that matter to you? What does really matter to you?
Thank you to everyone who submitted a quote, and especially to @natalie.dadamio.art for this beauty:
“There is so much waiting for you out on the wild creative edges if you just say YES to the journey.”
Keep saying yes. Wherever you are, keep going. The number of days is arbitrary. The project is just one container for committing to your practice. Maybe you want to keep going. Maybe you’re ready to take a break. Maybe you’re like me and starting something totally new and unexpected. Take some time in the coming weeks to reflect on where you are, everything you’ve learned, and celebrate your commitment.
