President’s Corner July 2021
“If you feel something calling you to dance or write or paint or sing (or quilt!), please refuse to worry about whether you’re good enough. Just do it!” Glennon Doyle Melton (and Kathy Morgan)
And here we go! A new month and a new location! New beginnings are always a mixed blessing, don’t you think? We have needed to adjust and adapt to the newness of many situations in the past year and a half. I think we have done an excellent job of being flexible and resilient. Isn’t that what life should beabout in all its aspects? Not a “Fake it till you make it!” kind of attitude, but rather an “Accept your
strengths and your weaknesses; learn something from them!” frame of mind.
Decades of teaching taught me to accept each student where they were in the learning process. Never in all my years of experience did I have a group of children who were always on the same page, the same learning level or on the same planet for that matter on any given day! How boring and how predictable!
That is how I feel sometimes about being a member of Sunset Slope Quilters. We have such an amazing range of talents and gifts. I have been quilting since 1986 and there are so many things I still need and want to learn. Often I look at one of my projects and go “Hmmm, not bad!” Other times I look at a work in progress and go “Egads! This is a train wreck!”, but I persevere and stick with it! And, it turns out good enough. Good Enough… It does not need to be perfect. It does not need to win best in show. It just needs to make me feel like I have accomplished something and not worry about what others think.
And, for me that is Good Enough!
So, get out there; dance or write or paint or sing (or quilt!) Do whatever answers your calling. Just do it! You will always be Good Enough!
