Sometimes a person must push through. In these moments of tiredness and exhaustion, a professional shows up to and for her work. I know this, but it’s hard. Sometimes I just want to take a bath and go to sleep. But in these moments it is important to push a little beyond this because that’s when the great stuff happens. For example, I designed a great coat, like a cape- like a cloak. I think Goth Girl would like it when she’s older. But I never would have designed this cape if I didn’t stay awake. But tomorrow I will sleep late and then call my mom. And tell her all about what I dreamed of and then created while I was pushing through.
