“Don’t Let the World Make You Hard”

As I attempted to resuscitate the dried up polymer clay from previous projects (this and this) to make a Double Bow keychain that I saw on Minted Strawberry, I pondered on the quote I once saw: Don’t Let the World Make You Hard.

We human are no different than the polymer clay — our souls too harden when neglected and forgotten over time. We need to take the time to knead, knead, and knead some more with love and care so that the crackled soul can become soft and alive again, and turn into something colorful and playful like these lovely double bows.
