From Your CRIT Counselor: Masterpiece in Progress

You are allowed to be both a masterpiece and a work in progress simultaneously.

A masterpiece is a work of outstanding artistry, skill, or workmanship. Each one of us is unique, truly a masterpiece. No one looks exactly like us or has experienced the same things. Even when looking at biological twins, their experiences and how they are perceived will differ. This masterpiece of ourselves does not remain the same. We continuously change because of what we see, feel, and do. 

For some, it may be challenging to distinguish that fine line between confidence and arrogance. We should be proud and confident of who we are, where we come from, and all our accomplishments. At the same time, it is essential to recognize that we have room for improvement and that no person is better than another. Each person is different, but different doesn’t mean less.

We are a masterpiece that changes each time internal or external factors impact us. We are a work in progress. Each day provides us with an opportunity to make different choices. How we respond or react to the events in our life will contribute to our masterpieces. Change is inevitable. How will you respond to the work your masterpiece encounters?
