Try It Tuesday

I attempted a watercolor of the Aurora Borealis. Mistakes were made, but that’s how things go.

There are things I’d do differently, but it’s still a pretty painting. I learned from it, and can hopefully do better next time.

The important thing is that I tried. It was intimidating, but I went for it.

Trying something new can be terrifying, I get it. However, not trying it can lead to regret and always wondering “what if.” Life is too short for “what if,” so get out there and try.

Attempt something you’ve been putting off. Enjoy this life, because you never know when you’ll be out of time.
