The questions I ask to myself…

Should I keep working on this piece

Pausing and thinking

But maybe I could make it more beautiful

Nah, just leave it

You know that second guessing yourself ruins everything

You don’t want to overwork something

Yeah, I think I’ll leave it alone

Move on.

After a really bad day/week it is relieving that I can hit the drawing board and forget me problems…for just a little bit.
