Day 25, Saturday: Something someone told you about yourself that you’ll never forget (good or bad)
When I was in high school, I had an art teacher tell me that I had no artistic talent what so ever and that she wouldn’t waste her time on me. Her words were piercing and unkind. I dumped her class.
I often wonder what I could have accomplished if I had just stuck it out because I love art.
I think that because of her, I always second guess myself in everything I make including my jewelry.
My children all are very artistic in their own way and I’ve always have encouraged them in what they make and encourage them to improve. Something that teacher never did for me.
