Hard work in combination with late nights and early alarms can really wear on a person. Then, without warning, a little accomplishment can make up for all the sacrifices. For me, completing my first assignment for my new art class has really provided some motivation to keep up all the extra effort. I worked forever on this little project, but the accomplishment I felt afterwards compensated for all the time I spent on this challenge. Take a look (click on pics to make them bigger):
When I started this lily charcoal drawing, I couldn’t be sure that it would turn out. But, I believed that if I took the time and worked hard on it, I could achieve my goal. I smile everytime I see my drawing because I believed in myself and took a chance. Here’s to allowing ourselves to believe in our dreams and forcing ourselves to put in the work it takes to achieve them!
