Well... This is supposed to be a six week adventure/ experience in wood working and education, but let's be honest. We are not even close to being done, right Pete?
I could write for days on what I gained this week at Soulcraft. I'm spending time with interesting, brave, cool people and hearing their stories while telling mine... We're all on a journey, aren't we? And I should be learning about others' journeys too, shouldn't I?
But, the really cool thing I think I'm gaining here is confidence to try new things.
After all, the more stuff you try, the more stuff you can do, right? (Not so profound or Emerson- like, but still, true.)
Today, I found myself stuck in my driveway. Alone. And about to be late for work with a car that wouldn't start... Again.
I've watched this three times before today, I can do this.
So I did. I jumped my own car today.
I jumped my own car without any help?
I did! I jumped my own car. I did it! I did it myself!
And without this class/experience/cohort/thing, I'm not sure I would've ever even tried.
I could hear my dad doing a cheer up in heaven (likely because I didn't set my car or myself on fire).
