Some days I just can't seem to be creative. I get "stuck" trying to imagine anything new, which is a real problem in my line of work. Today was one of those days. I responded to emails, phone calls, and anything else that was easy to check off my to-do list then I stared at a blank blog post thinking that writing might snap me out of it. No such luck--so I gave up, drank extra coffee, cleaned my desk and weeded my flower bed (in the rain no less) before finally returning to work having forgotten all about my morning 'funk'. Isn't it weird how things just kind of cease to exist once you let them?
I saw an Instagram post that Marta from Made of Cloth shared yesterday. Her words reminded me that it's okay to sometimes be stuck- that everyone is from time to time. The trick is though, to simply keep going anyway.
Poking around online this afternoon I came across a few really inspiring and breathtaking color combinations- and some fresh sheep (my un-official spirit animal)- and thought "How ridiculous that I would feel so uninspired with the entire internet literally at my fingertips".
C'est la vie I suppose. I'll try to remind myself of these sheep, and the one a dear friend shared from over the ocean, as well as the company of the talented and kind women I've met as I've started out on my own entrepreneurial journey, when I'm "stuck" and feeling frustrated again tomorrow. I think I'll stop and remind myself to keep going.
Not sure if it's 'normal' to be so inspired by shoes, but the beauty of these can't be denied. CL is coming out with real "nude" flats for their "Nudes Collection"! Why, I ask has it taken until 2016 for this to be a 'thing'? Did I just miss it before, or have nude shoes always been one not-so-realistic skin tone? The advertising for these puppies is perfection::
