THE JOURNAL

I can not fail.

This is a segment from a personal journal entry I wrote on January 16, 2020.

“Today, I don’t turn around and go back to The Little Blue House (Studio). Today, I parked. I Let myself in with MY keys. I sit on the floor with my sandwich, the place needs cleaned, painted, the only thing of “mine” here is the unfinished walls, my planner, and new candles. A single glass, & a bottle of Champagne. I did it. I made it. It’s mine. I’m here. I am divinely supported. I can not fail. It would be impossible.”

First day in the New Location. Jaclynn Wilkinson

I sat on a dirty floor. Lit a candle. Surrounded by paint cans & DIY fixer-up supplies with two weeks of hard work ahead but my heart melted as my mind said, “yup. This is a feeling I know.”

For MONTHS I took a detour on the way to The Little Blue Studio. I turned right when I was supposed to go straight. Then, I’d drive just 10 seconds down a steep hill until I saw my building. I said, “That’s yours, you know?”. Flipped a U at the bottom of the hill and drove back to my tiny studio. “Some, Day, I’ll park…”

I can’t wait to share more of this story with you.

FYI: The new space looks nothing like this photo any more…
but it feels the exact same to me. ♥

I can not fail.
