Stepping out of my comfort zone

Stepping out of my comfort zone

For a long time, I’ve wanted to start my own blog - a place that will allow me to share with the world a bit more about my work process, my thoughts, and feelings, and even maybe a glimpse into my personal life. But the critic voices that are in my head just didn't let me go with it.

I’m very visual-oriented, and I’ve been that way for as long as I can remember. This strength helps me to feel okay with my lack of writing/language skills, so I never thought to fight it or to try to change it - I just knew, “writing it's not my thing.״

But in the past year, I was exposed to a new idea about growth mindset: it claims that we should stop saying to ourselves what we can’t and what we are not, and instead use the phrase ”not yet” much more often. It means that, with hard work and dedication, we can accomplish what we are up to.

This idea changed my mindset completely, and that is what also helped me decide to step out of my comfort zone and finally, start my own blog. With this new idea in my mind, I do believe that if I stick to creating consistent posts, my writing will be better in one year! (I’m not expecting perfection - but I do love to feel that I’m making positive progress).

So, if you are interested to follow my journey, and learn more about me and my work, and to learn if this growth mindset idea is really working (...) I will love it if you will stay tuned for my upcoming posts.

For a disclaimer - Someone did help me with the English and grammar. After all, I do want you to understand what I'm talking about (:

Yours,
Miri

      Hi Matheus!
      Thank you for your comment! I’m so happy to hear that I’m inspiring you, this is my favorite part of doing what I do (:
      “Growth mindset” is a good thing to have when you starting to work with clay. You will need a lot of patience and a lot of practice. But I loved it also when everything went wrong! Good luck and I will be happy if you will update me how it is going.
