Creativity Project Year Two-Day 73

Outstanding Effort

I am not the best,
But I make an attempt to
Do my very best.
Sometimes I accomplish goals,
Sometimes I am left dreaming.

No one is perfect…
Though I attempt perfection,
I am very hard
On myself when I create,
Even worse than most critics.

My expectations
Are set exceptionally
High and I continue
Making art according to
My increasing expertise.

I hope to win some
People over through effort,
Even if I fail
At being the very best,
I recognize limitations.

I am grateful:

1.   I did not have to leave the house today.
2.   I was able to finish the SCC page for the CHN&V.
3.   I am gradually learning more about Photoshop.
4.   I have wonderful tools with which to work.
5.   Outlook has begun working again after repetitive freezes.


My Friday was busy, but rewarding. I always enjoy seeing work turn out well. I hope your day was filled with accomplishment. Now, while you have a few minutes you can dedicate to creation, make something wonderful to share with the world. It does not have to be perfect, just make an effort to express yourself.

As a prompt, write a poem, story, or journal entry that celebrates continued effort rather than perfection. Share a link to your work in the comments below.

I appreciate your visiting my blog. I hope you are encouraged by something you found here. Please come back often, but you might also want to enter your email in the space above so you will receive future updates to Chronicles.

    Good job Jo. Nice poetic lines at the top. Very inspirational. I too dream big things just as you do. Nice to see you.
    Wish you luck for your dreams.

    Great poem, and wonderful photos!

    My Friday was full of accomplishment, though the most important part wasn’t even MY doing.

    I am looking forward to Tuesday when I will reveal what it was all about. 😀

    It is 1045pm CST, Monday evening, as I write.

    If you are awake after 145am your time, stop by my cat blog and be among the first to help us celebrate. 😀
