As I sat down to work on something not knowing exactly what, I hit the top of my tumbler filled with water.

Most of the water went into the tray that is my watercolor palette. I suppose it was as good a time as any to clean it. It wasn’t terribly messy, but after the water splashed in, there didn’t seem to be much else I could do.

In those moments of accidents and mistakes, we have a choice to make. While sometimes there are other factors that figure into our reactions, what is our default?

I’m looking at this clean palette with eyes that see an opportunity to begin again. A clean slate to formulate new ideas, mix new colors, and maybe venture into a different direction.

*full disclosure, I don’t always react in the positive – I am human after all!

Keep on your #creativejourney, keep #lookingfordetails!
