"You have to participate relentlessly in the manifestations of your own blessings." PREACH @elizabeth_gilbert_writer, preach! 💖
In response to sharing a bit about the most recent copied pattern and traced template, I've had a few people say that shady internet scamery like this keeps them from wanting to publish their own patterns. I completely understand this feeling. 🙁I've had it myself this week. I mean, why go to the trouble of creating something original, spending time away from your family, staying up ridiculously late only to have someone drag behind on your coat tails? 😳
But this ⬆️little gem I quoted from @elizabeth_gilbert_writer is exactly why. It's by participating (even at risk of experiencing something sucky) that we expand. That's been my own experience at least. .
So I say go out, publish the heck out of your patterns, poems, songs, art, ideas and make your light shine so bright it blinds the scammers out there! 😉🌈
(For any makers who haven't read "Big Magic," by @elizabeth_gilbert_writer, you MUST! And then go listen to her awesome podcast called "Magic Lessons." Both will change your life!)
PS. This is the free Revival Scarf pattern you can find on the blog. I made it with @lionbrandyarn Merino Yak Alpaca. 😍
