Social media man….such a love hate relationship with it, I have. For years I loooooved the simple fact that I could check in on those who I wonder about. Or that simple reminder of a birthday that pops up! Then as time passed, I realized a simple text is different. More genuine, closer to the touch.
But mannnnn how this generation allows the simple habit of posting, to take over their daily existence. Now I’m not going to sit here and point fingers, or try to act like I’m 10 feet close to perfect; but I once was that addict. I wanted to be in the “know.” I wanted to see what everyone was doing, where everyone was going. And I honestly now know why.
I lacked a busy life style, I was a stay-at-home-mom for 2.5 years ( the longest time in my liiiife) and although 2 little girls kept my hands full, I constantly had the fear of missing out. Mostly due to my stubborn mindset, I didn’t want to give up my dreams of creating. I was great at being a mother, and great at creating.
As soon as I took the leap and began my position as Creative Director, and Production Manager, my days turned to nights!
Hustle is the most important word thus far. If I am simply standing still I feel as if I’m taking steps backwards. I have notebooks of ideas, and years ahead. Goals so far, and some in reach as the days move ahead. One thing is clear, I’ve been neglecting social media again. Hop on from time to time, and again-feel as though I’m taking steps backwards. I see photos of this generation all looking the same, all struggling to stay on trend; Kardashians everywhere. I’ve been spending a lot of time in my head. Planning, pushing.
On this Monday, I finished a workout and felt accomplished, I realized half way through that giving up wouldn’t make me happy tomorrow, so instead I did 5 extra reps.
Instead of placing my phone on the opposite side of the room, I turned my negative thoughts to business thoughts. Social media is powerful; so powerful it ranks top outlet for marketing.
I’m sitting in this small house, in the smallest state, and without hesitation realized it’s time to push forward, get out of the funk, and keep going. I promised myself to use this outlet not only as I first began its use for-writing, but to also share with you everything I have been working on!
So many of you have been following up with my last few years of life haha , and I realized that so much of my support comes from this outlet. I want to say thank you to those who came to my office to purchase bags it’s an indescribable feeling. So much hard work and dedication goes into this line.
So this post is to remind everyone to stand out! Don’t follow what your idea of perfection is, just be yourself. I threw myself together yesterday and got endless compliments for my tomboy outfit (especially from the cutest little ole’ ladies)!
Our Red fabric will be taking a vacation for awhile, so these are the last of them, and guysssss I’m so in love! I hope you all enjoy, and remember sometimes a bright/bold accessory can pull together your entire look ( here I felt a taddddd bit less of a boy with this red Mary) haha
