|A Message to My Future Self|
In this last assignment, Vivienne asks us to take a picture to send to our future self. As you can imagine, I ground my gears over this one for weeks. What do I want to tell my future self? This is so BIG. This is so IMPORTANT.
Finally, I realized that more than anything else, my big brain OVERTHINKING all of my creative projects actually stops them from ever getting done, just as it stopped me from taking this very picture. So my message to my future self (and my present self) is to remember to just create. Just make. Don't worry so much. You will make mistakes and often those mistakes will turn into something beautiful. If you stay frozen, you will never make anything at all, so you might as well just go for it. What a relief!
