One of my friends sits with me on occasion and tries to show me how to make granny squares, or chains or something, but everything always comes out cock-eyed and wider at the top than the bottom. I keep wondering if I should just give up this craft since there are so many other things I like to do and want to do (and that I actually can do).
When I was reading The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin, two things that she said stood out to me. One was that you should not feel like you have to do things that you aren't good at or that you don't enjoy. The other was that challenging yourself is important to happiness.
Two conflicting ideas. . .Which is correct? I think they both are. You just have to know which is which. (Reading Jane Austen books falls into this category too.)
I'm not sure which one crochet is yet.
What things do you think you need to let go in order to be happy? What things do you think will make you happy by challenging yourself to do them? Do you think I'll ever learn to crochet?
