The greatest gift we can give ourselves is no expectations. When we free ourselves from having to live up to or deliver according to expectations (aka perfection), we can truly be in the moment and present. We grant ourselves permission to create or make as we did when we were kids.
This April through July, I'm giving myself this exact freedom. For Elle Luna's 100 Days Project, I'm creating 100 collages using supplies I've been stockpiling for eventual projects over the past decade or so.
