To start this off with a photo, here is 10/52, titled ‘connection’:
Last week I read Jenna’s Post “You do too much” and it really resonated with me.
I get this a lot too, people telling me I do so much or I do too much. It’s true, I have a full-time job plus a growing business, I sew my own clothes, I do yoga, I go horseriding, I have friends, a household etc.
And I am sometimes plain exhausted by it. And I don’t get up at 6am on a Saturday after a long week at the office and jump for joy because I get to work another couple of hours on my own business doing tax stuff.
But still, I’m with Jenna. Not doing it all is simply not an option. Even if inspiration looks like “this” a lot of the time, it is what keeps me happy and inspired and proud and pushes me out of my comfort zone and makes me grow in ways I could never anticipate. All the hard stuff is so worth the rush of adrenaline and happiness that creating something good out of thin air gives me, whether it be a garment or a photo or a whole business.
This is so much less eloquent than Jenna put it, but it needed out today on a cold, grey, snowy morning on which the excitement of inspiration and creation (and the anticipation of a spring hopefully just around the corner) is pretty much the only thing which could make me crawl out of bed.
And speaking of inspiration, I updated and sorted my Pinterest boards a while ago and made some new ones too and always forgot to mention it here. So, all new and tidy over there in case you want to have a peek (I do love Pinterest so!).
Pinterest is the best! I would be so disorganized without it. Beauuuutiful shot, btw. Makes me miss my horse so much.
Thanks Lindsay :)) Me too, I used to store inspiring images on folders but it was a mess and with Pinterest I love that you usually have the source attached.
What happened with you horse?
Oh, I love the photo to introduce your entry. It is so beautiful!
I am also frequently told “you do too much” and I don’t know what they mean exactly. I do what I like doing, maybe it’s too much, maybe it’s not.
PS: I started following you in Pinterest. Addicted to it!
I guess we all have our own definition of too much! Thanks :))
