My needlepoint Jaguar rug is finally finished and she turned out great! She measures roughly 3 x 4 feet and is about 80% recycled materials! The most expensive part of the whole project was her custom laser cut claws! This was a really challenging and humbling project and I’m proud of the finished piece! I can’t wait to start a new project!
BONUS: This is what she looked like five months ago!
As I get older I’m starting to let go of the guilty urge to build permanent habits. Like, a while ago I decided I would start jumping rope every day. I did it for like three weeks and felt good about it. Then I got bored, because of course I did, because I’m a human person. So now I do a bit of kickboxing because that’s what I like now. The other week I cut all sugar from my diet, just for a week, to challenge myself. Now I’m back to eating sweets but I don’t crave them as much.
Growth is about stretching, trying new things, and setting small, realistic goals for yourself, not picking a “good habit” you’ve decided you will be doing always and forever from now on. That’s not discipline. That’s pointless self-torture and unhealthy resistance to change.
What’s good for you today will not necessarily be what’s good for you tomorrow.

The ritual is a series of images that revolves around one’s perception through the eyes of someone equal. One’s perception can be prey to the quietness of a dance, a pair of watchful eyes, a soild that clung to our shoulders or some ornaments decorating our eyes.”
