Experience necessary

One of my personal commandments is:

Never be too cool to try something.

During high school I worried about trying new things in front of others, in case I looked like an idiot.  Now I have embraced my inner idiot, and I’m happy to look silly doing just about anything.

This is a great way to grow my comfort zone.  And it’s just more fun to live this way.

Having a new baby makes things a bit more difficult.  On top of my current sleep deprivation, the logistics get a little tricky.

However, two new experiences have recently caught my eye.  At the beginning of June, Ampersand Duck is running a workshop on Artist’s Books.  And at the beginning of July there is a local zine fair, where it’s free to participate.

Does that look like synchronicity to you?

These are both experiences I’d love to have.  And I’m hoping that the first (the workshop) might help me develop something for the second (the fair).

The only thing stopping me is my fear of looking like an idiot.

Anyway, this is what I’m wishing for this week.  What about you?

  21. Your wish is waiting for you to reach out and grab it! Don’t stop to think – sign up now!

    And once you become a mom, looking like an idiot is so far removed from any of your daily concerns … I have been seen dancing on street corners with my child, wearing face paint (that she put on me) in public and once going out with only one button done up on my shirt. I was that excited to get out of the house – oops!
