Perseverance


“Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence.”

Calvin Coolidge

It seems fitting today as I stop and think, “what am I really doing, day after day, folding paper, creating yet more kusudama flowers, origami, paper banners, luminaries, etc. etc. etc…..?” I seem to ‘almost’ have hit a dead end of sorts concerning my Etsy shop. Sales have been very, very slow, almost non-existent, to say the least. But all I want to do is create, create, create, fold, fold, fold. My mind soars with ideas, …. this seems to be my magnificent obsession.

So today I remember the words of optimists. It is good to do so because life can tackle us by the ankles often. So I trim my sail a bit and ‘fold’ on. This rainy, cloudy day in California is a time for optimistic thinking, and eyes that are ‘looking forward.

And so it goes …. hopefully you are kicking up the dust behind you and plowing forward?Image
