The minute I saw this plaque I thought of Kym's Words in the Wild series. She is carefully trying to stay inside the lines while coloring the tiny little flowers in her new coloring book. However, she can certainly make the flowers any color her heart desires. What about pink vines and green flowers! Who would know and who should care, except Kym, of course.
Too often I find I stay within the bounds and limits I set for myself. They can be confines too small to exercise my creativity, because I am unsure of myself or fearful of failure. I ask, by whose measure will I failure? Who will judge or punish me if I fail? I am the only one who builds my walls and fences and I am the only one I can fail. I must be kind to myself, if failure happens, I must realize it is only a learning moment in disguise.
