I find myself to be a fairly creative person, but like anyone, it’s easy to get burned out when you’re spread too thin. Over the last 6 months, I have really struggled creatively. Between my job and personal life, I have found it hard to feel inspired. And as many people in my personal life will attest, when I am tired, or busy, or whatever, I tend to withdraw. Everyone copes differently and that’s completely okay! And most of them don’t hold it against me (most of the time).
During this time I have spent a ton of time thinking about my goals, and where I want to be in life. I do not regret passing on the Boston job. Looking back though, I could have made it work, and could have put some more effort in to explore it. I recently heard a statement “Don’t hope you make the right choice, make it the right choice.” I could have made it the right choice and I think fear held me back. So now, I am feeling antsy creatively again. Real estate has fun and not-fun times, but I have grown as a designer and marketer a ton over the last 6 years and I am ready to make something the right decision. I am exploring more creative options and I am really excited to find where it could take me!
Now, on to Summer of Dresses. I love how light and airy this dress is, and it fits the bill of being more summery. One struggle I keep running into is having lightweight fabric and ironing, and then having wrinkles 2.5 seconds after walking out my front door. If anyone has any ideas here, let me know!
