I have to guard against setting the bar too high in regards to my expectations of myself and this business, because I will kill myself trying. Since my move away from first my brick and mortar, then social media, I've realized how hard I was trying to show up perfect.
Yesterday was my birthday, and my husband gave me a year's subscription to Women's Wear Daily, which used to be a print publication, but is now a pdf delivered every morning to my inbox and an app on my phone.
This morning, I read today's WWD, and sat in the presence of stunningly gorgeous fashion and seasoned designers. I felt released from the incorrect perception that I have to show up perfect. And encouraged to prioritize inspiration in this next season of my business.
I can't express how good it feels to have direction, after long weeks of what seemed like downsizing. After floundering internally, trying to put into words what I needed, I feel something starting to form in my heart and therefore the heart of this business.
