ART CHALLENGE: Calendar Challenge (and a sure-fire way to fail)

I really want to join the Kathryn Wheel 2011 Calendar challenge but my first instinct was … It is half way through Feb, I should of started the first of the year, my second thought upon looking at the calendars some people have done was I could never do that good so why try?  I had similar thoughts when I was going through the over 800 blogs in OWOH and I almost wanted to quit cause there were so many amazing blogs I felt mine was not very good.

This is the way to fail at anything… compare yourself to others, make excuses about why you should not even try and then give up.

I did not give up blogging and I wont give up this challenge… so my calendar starts in the middle of Feb… sooooo what, your life starts THIS MINUTE, over and over again, every single time I slip a little I have a chance to start again fresh.  Any successful dieter or anyone recovering from addiction can tell you that you dont live life Day by day but minute by minute.

I need to learn not to be intimidated by other people’s skills, other people’s successes whether they be in art, work or weight loss, I need to learn to be INSPIRED
