ONE OF THOSE DAYS....

I've been having one of those days. You know, those days where you're feeling insecure about where you are & where you're going. I don't get it, life is good.

I'm thinking alot about teaching... I'm dying to teach, but I question WHAT I have to offer that all of these fantastic instructors don't? Who am I? Am I different enough that others will want what I'm offering? Am I good enough? I've been told that I'm a fantastic teacher... but...

BUT. Stupid word.

It's been a pity party kind of day. Can't believe I'm writing about it.

I guess it's on my mind because I'm [supposed to be] in the process of getting my studio cleaned up & set up for teaching one on one. I've been talking about doing it for a long while now... it's just time to DO IT!! I get asked often enough if I teach... I'd love to say YES.

Hey! How about a picture of some sweet acorns??? :o)
Time to kick the pity party to the curb & actually do something that's going to move me forward, right?

Just do it....

Ah, the old self doubt seed that gets in your mind and grows and grows - most people have it..,too big (mine!),too small,why me? But I think it's all part of the preparation process for new things that lead us to a considered approach rather than diving in to hard or too fast. I bet all the answers to your questions were positive so let it work for you...

If I lived near you I would jump on the chance to have one on one classes with you! I want to learn to make beautiful works with fire and glass so bad, but I just can not find anyone in my area that teaches. I think you should throw that pity monster to the curve and take on a student, because you are a wonderfully talented person that has knowledge to share.

Thank you, ladies. Yesterday's pity party is over & I'm just going to focus on moving forward!

I like your thinking, Lesley... the hesitation is just giving me time to prepare to be the best teacher I can be.

No local glass shop, Therese? I know of a great one in Atlanta. :o)

That is great Julie, what is the name of the shop?

It's so amazing to me when I see someone I admire so much, someone I know I can never be, feel the same way I do. Goes to show -- we ALL feel this way at some point. Go to the BSBPForum under the "Support" section and check out the post I wrote recently -- it might help.
