Yesterday... Day 97 of #100daysofmaking
The lost day... This morning I woke up from a good nights sleep to suddenly realize what I forgot to do yesterday... I forgot to make my 97th day of jewelry. Devastated, I cried. A lot! Miserable and upset that I was SO close. Only 4 more days to reach my goal. I failed! The goal was simple and I tripped and landed face first just short of the finish line.
I went for a long bike ride to clear my head. I went to visit the #GoldenGateBridge. I asked her what I should do. “GG, should I just give up or start over?” She didn’t respond. I had a feeling there were other possibilities I hadn’t considered. I kept riding and thinking, letting myself mourn the loss.
I came home and ruminated on all my past artistic failures and countless unfinished projects. “What do I do now?” “What is the next right thing?”
I checked my phone. I checked my email. I looked in the fridge and the pantry. No answers were found.
After a generous amount of IG scrolling and snacking, I got to it. I sat down at my workbench and started making.
The answer came. Just keep going. Get up, dust myself off and finish the race.
Today will be an asterisk * next to my gold star. A detour. I’m going to get up and finish anyway. I rather have a blemished record than no record at all.

Yesterday was the ninety-seventh day
of my #100daysofmaking challenge
My goal was to make 1 piece of jewelry
every day for 100 days.
