Perfection is really the road to imperfection. What has been your relationship to imperfection; to the acceptance of it in everyday life?
Each day seems to go differently than what I expect or plan. It changes and moves organically, especially with a family. Over the years, I've become more accepting of how life is and the curveballs it throws.
For me, the unpredictability of 'imperfection' can lead to the best ideas. Some of the Morrow pieces that I'm most proud of started from an 'imperfect' sample that helped develop a concept. Sometimes imperfection is the spark; if we receive a sample of a new weave, it may not be right for that particular object, but then it leads to a whole new collection or concept. (I will say that I usually need to remove myself from the situation and take a couple until I can see the beauty in the imperfection.)
There is no "right" way to be yourself; rarely, if ever is there permanence. But there is process. How have you come to know yourself differently in the past year?
I'm learning to be more content and to be more confident with who I am. I take more time for self-care and self-awareness. I'm not fully where I want to be (who is?). but I feel like I'm getting closer to a better and more balanced lifestyle. I've recently been writing letters and notes to myself in a journal, and it's been a really helpful therapeutic process. I've also started hypnotherapy which has been positive and stimulating.
