Redefining Success

We often see perfection as success and anything less as failure. But what if we turned this idea on its head and instead saw any type of PROGRESS as SUCCESS. With just this simple mindset change - suddenly anxiety of the dreaded "mistake" doesn't seem so bad. This mindset gives us wiggle room to play and learn without fear of failure. Because if we are honest with ourselves - the biggest failure is never trying in the first place.

MEET THE ARTIST

Hi there, I’m Carrie Luc. The artist behind Watercolor Misfit. I’m a proud working mama of two fur babies (Teddie our Golden/Lab mix and Pepper our Hound Mix) & married to my best friend in the whole wide world and soulmate - Stephen. We live in South Carolina and enjoy spending time in our backyard as well as catching up on some of our fav tv shows and movies. We are mainly home bodies - but that is okay because we always have lots of projects to keep us busy.

Here on my blog you can find posts on my life over the last decade as well as newer posts on art hacks and tricks I’ve learned along the way. I hope you enjoy your time here and get perhaps a spark to start creating! Lots of Love! –Carrie

Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.
