My mom and grandma instilled in me a love for making things. I remember learning to knit from my mother when I was about 7. I made the most awful slippers imaginable - misshapen and ugly, but I wore them until they were no longer wearable.
Those ladies taught me so much more than crafts, even as they were using crafts as examples. Do your best. Finish what you start. Take pride in what you do. Don't waste what you have. I've been making 'stuff' ever since, and feel that I honor them by continuing the traditions of hand-crafting. I did get better at making 'stuff' as I grew up, and never forgot the lessons or those ridiculous slippers.
My suggestion: whatever else you do, go to your knitting bag and make stuff!
