What’s the Word for Eager and Angst?

I love Jon Stich’s teaching style and his art so I am super excited to start the exercises in this book. This, despite the fact that he’s big on details (not my forte), mixing colors (my artistic Achilles Heel) and drawing items that take more than an hour (I like quick exercises)! Here’s to learning, getting dissatisfied and frustrated, and persevering.

“Being challenged is a good thing. It allows you to grow.”

Eckhart Tolle

A synonym of “exam”  (as in examining your own reactions and emotions) is “observation.” It requires moments and space to step back and observe what is going on inside of you. This is challenging but necessary in the steps to stretch, grow and evolve.
