Making space for that element of surprise gave me such delight when I did reflect my drawings to create what I couldn't fully predict! Like pulling your new "experimental" recipe cookies from the oven, there were frames that didn't seem right - something was poking out too far or just "tasted weird," but there were also new notes and flavors that I loved!
I believe allowing yourself to be delighted - or even disappointed - by what comes out of your hands when you sit down to make something is valuable, because it represents opening to something outside yourself.
It represents risking disappointment for the opportunity of delight, and trusting that the future, though hidden, can be your friend in ways you won't see until it arrives.
And that is how I want to live my life!
