Dear Creative – Let Your Light Shine!

Today I spent time in a photoshoot with my cousin and sister and we are working to promote my moms work as a seamstress.

My mom has been sewing for more than twenty years. It’s been her dream to have her own business as a seamstress — so we are doing some experimenting with social media and collaborating with creatives.

As a creative we are often timid to share our work. Recently I watched my friends video about confidence you can check out that video here. Her words make sense.

Curious to see what we were working on?“>Check a sneak preview here of todays festivities

You Don’t Need Permission

You don’t need permission to be great.

Surely this is a note to myself. I’ve enrolled in Convert Kits Product Master Class with hundreds of other people – and it made me realize you don’t need permission to go after what you want.

You need dedication, consistency, and discipline – all that mixed with hard work, trial and error with a bit of realistic expectations are bound to flourish.

Somewhere along the lines we’ve shy’d away from trial and error. Be it from the advice, opinions and suggestions of those around us or the lack of confidence. I’ll talk more about building confidence in a future post but I’ve found that too often we are seeking permission from people to do things we already enjoy.

Life’s challenges require us to be creative and think out the box. If there’s advice I wish someone told me sooner – and I mean drilled it into my head – it would be that you don’t need permission. Be great at what you do and share, share, share!!!!

There’s more to this note to self that I’ll be sharing tomorrow. In the mean time check out the product master class!!!

Something Is Happening Here

Something Is Happening Here

It’s getting easier to share my writings and as comments pour in there is a new found motivation happening. So far the topics that seem to resonate the most are fitness/wellness and health, beauty, faith and spirituality, and a few of the life lessons learned.

While this is an assumption, it informs me that the writing needs to be relatable and not always offer a solution-  but perhaps invite someone to share their experience, thoughts and opinions. A common ground really.

But something else is happening as well, showing up to my blog allowed me to talk freely (where I felt comfortable in sharing publicly) about myself, my struggles, fears and dislikes – but as new people come along for the journey I know I don’t wish to sound like I am rambling. It’s forcing me to choose my topics a bit more intentionally.

But my writing were (selfishly) for me. A place to clear my head, improve my writing style, “find my voice” as people like to say and just explore. But more people are peeping in. Curiosity is striking and I see you! 🙂

One thing I believe is that we have one life and everything is interconnected. From the choices we make, to the people we meet, the seasons of life and everything in between its there with and for purpose.

I want these writing to help me articulate better and help me in finding clarity – especially when it comes to designing for people. This thing thats happening has only come through experimenting, showing up consistently, and being authentic.

Perhaps a crowd is forming- and I’m not gonna lie – it’s interesting to take note, to point it out even. Perhaps an audience is forming.
