A Lesson Learned While Knitting: W.I.P.s

I had a revelation. W.I.P.s ("works in progress" for the non-knitters) are not bad. They don't mean that I'm impatient or lack the ability to follow-through. They aren't just unfinished sweaters or hats or socks whose only purpose is to force me to buy new needles. I shouldn't be ashamed of them nor should I shy away from them. In actuality, they represent what's in store; what is yet to be. Improvement. Progression. Creation.

Isn't that what we are - works in progress? Aren't we growing and developing? Setting goals, reaching them, and setting new ones? Evolving. Maturing. Thriving. If not, we should be.

As this year draws to a close and you look forward to 2010, do so with expectation. And when the new year rolls in, pick up where you left off and get to knittin'.

Until next time...
