Don’t worry. Play!

When playing with art materials and expressive possibilities, the most fundamental advice is, “Withhold your desires for outcomes.” You don’t want to be at “the end” of the process when you are just beginning or in the thick of it. You have to be where you are as completely as possible. Free play is the best way to achieve this state of committed presence because there is no expectation beyond the activity pursued for its own sake. In keeping with the pop adage, “wherever you go, there you are.”
