how to become an artisan

What sort of person do you want to be in the future?
Choose to be that person today.
Choose to act like that person today.
If you never begin the journey,
you will never arrive at the destination.

Do you want to be an artisan?
Then establish yourself as one
and begin to act like one
and continue to act like one
until you're known as one.

Forget the constraints of time and space.
If the future you is an artisan
you are an artisan!
If you are an artisan,
what will you do today?
Forget the constraints of skills yet unlearned.

Learn them.

Stitching isn't hard.
For hundreds of years our ancestors
learned to stitch as children.
Your great-grandmothers and great-grandfathers
made their clothes with their hands.
You can too
it's in your blood.

Maybe you can't create
exactly what you want
today.
But today
you can begin to learn to create.
And tomorrow
you can continue.
And if every tomorrow
you make just one more stitch,
next year
you'll be an artisan
with hundreds of stitches under your fingers.
