A Beginning

I wanted to start my bead journal yesterday, at least a few stitches. I had already thought out an idea for the year and gathered beads for the first "page." After working for a few minutes, I realized I was beading on the wrong side of the fabric. My first inclination was to tear out the beads and turn the fabric over and start again. But after thinking about it, I realized that there is no right or wrong, good or bad. I also saw that the "wrong" side was the inside of the fabric, and since our feelings and thoughts come from within, that I had actually subconsciously beaded exactly where I needed to be. Beads always know exactly what to do, it's so amazing.
