I don't know about other left-handed people -- but I struggle sometimes doing things the way we are supposed to. Most people hold their paper vertical and write -- me I hold my paper so it is horizontal to my body. Shooting videos and painting -- means holding the paper vertically -- which does not come naturally to me.
But I think it would be hard to watch a movie with your head cocked off to the side to get a clear view of what I'm doing.
So my art journal pages are a little bit messy -- at least the ones I'm filming. It probably only something that I would notice. But, I think with practice practice and more practice -- with my paper placed vertically in front of me -- I can work through the messiness and retrain my hand to paint that way.
Which brings me to my quote today. Everyday -- every year -- all the time we have opportunities to re-make ourselves. Whether it is as a wife, friend, mother, artist, teacher, smoker, eater, beater, President, principal -- every one has the opportunity to shed the way they were for the way they want to be.
It takes courage.
It takes hard-work.
And persistence. and a whole lot of strength. But you can do it.
Everyone has it within themselves to be great -- at whatever it is they want to do. Start today. I am.
What do you want to be great at?
Thanks for stopping by. Have a wonderful weekend!
