If you can’t tell by these Wednesday Word posts, I’m a HUGE fan of hand lettering. I just love how each artist’s personality shines through with every pen stroke. This Wednesday Word, courtesy of the amazing Dwellephant, is a wonderful example of the new, dynamic and creative life that words can take on once written. Here, the artist takes a quote from late actor-comedian (and wife of Gene Wilder–who knew?!) Gilda Radner, which reminds us to live in the moment. Things aren’t always handed to you wrapped in a pristine package with a behemoth bow. No, life is full of mistakes and missteps. It’s full of disappointment and discomfort. Life is, essentially, that sweet spot where you color outside of the lines but marvel at the masterpiece that such unrestraint creates. It’s OK that things don’t go according to plan; it’s all about how you handle situations that don’t go your way. Admittedly, I’ve fallen into the trap of feeling like I’ve lost because something took a different turn. However, I’m working on learning the lesson from a perceived failure. I’m telling myself not to be so hard on myself, and am striving to find peace in not having all the answers. I’m working on my outlook, y’all. Can you relate? Let me know in the comments section below!
