“If only letting go of bad habits and fears, was as easy and as fun as letting go of, and popping, these balloons …
This affirmation highlights beautifully the problem with perfectionism, and the struggles of letting go. Big Sophie wasn’t going to release this one, Not Good Enough she said. Don’t tell her I said this, but I can kind of see what she’s getting at bless her, but I said … NO! If you keep holding these tings back because they’re not good enough, you’ll never publish anything.
In the end I forced her to let go and set this Affirmation free. In a years time, when you’ve got more skills, come back and update it. That can be part of the process, showing how the drawing changes and improves over time…plus it gives me another excuse to pop more balloons *yay*
Funny story about this one, it was a super windy day, and while I was standing around waiting for big Sophie to sort her art stuff out, the balloons kept getting blown out my hand; we used about 50 of em in the end, a couple even got popped after I stuffed them in my bra and was showing big Sophie my not-so-lil-boobies, before falling over and BANG Instant breast reduction lol
So we both know this one isn’t perfect, but because it isn’t … it kind of is :) Sometimes you’ve just got to see where the wind takes you, and accept, that it’s Time to Let Go.“
