Above all, be true to yourself, and if you cannot put your heart in it, take yourself out of it. -Hardy D. Jackson
Men for the sake of getting a living forget to live. -Margaret Fuller
There is no passion to be found playing small-in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living. -Nelson Mandela
Don’t waste yourself in rejection, nor bark against the bad, but chant the beauty of the good. -Ralph Waldo Emerson
Every single day, do something that makes your heart sing. —Marcia Wieder
Its not always what we need to do more but rather that we need to focus on less. —Nathan W. Morris
Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day. You shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense. -Ralph Waldo Emerson
Tonight is one of my best friend’s weddings, and then tonight we leave for our two week trip on the east coast.
I could not be more excited for this break!
I love love love my work, and even my new found friends through my Etsy shop, but I am definitely feeling that overworked drag. The creative juices are drying up and this break away from the computer is going to be so good for me.
When I saw the above post on the Year of Lettering, I just knew I had to share it. It was just too appropriate and exactly how I am feeling!
Right when we get back, the bridal shower I have been planning for the last 7 months is just going to be a mere week away and then we are wrapping up the wedding invites, getting the wedding DIY crafts done (I seriously love this kind of stuff!), and then just spending as much time together as possible before the best friend becomes a missus.
And amongst all that, there are some big work projects wrapping up and some personal branding for myself that I want to get on… getting my Etsy shop cleaned up and adding new products!
There’s just so much going on, but as of now while it makes me feel tired, I am excited to get rejuvenated in Maine and come back with new ideas and a refreshed outlook with “the whole world before [me]!”
While I am gone, I have some long awaited photos from our family trip to San Diego last month, print work for church from many months ago, and also a couple Friday guest posts from Amie with some DIYs planned for the wedding and Jessica from J. Rose Photography is posting about her 5 Would Not, Could Not Live Without Baby Items for all you mommies out there! So keep checking back!
Hope your next few weeks are as fabulous as mine plan to be! 🙂
