"Never get so busy making a living, that you forget to make a life".
It's not that I forgot... It's just... you know... stuff. Sometimes we get so wrapped up in what we're doing, we forget to stop and smell the roses, breathe the fresh air.
I've been trying to do a lot more of that lately. I'm trying to think about work as a secondary thing. How every thought doesn't need to be a blog post, or a new product idea. How every thing that happens, doesn't need to be shared. Sometimes we just need to shut the computers off, put down the phones, and walk away. Go live. Go be.
I've been thinking about my business much more from a business standpoint lately, than from the heart or for the love, and focusing more on the sustainability of things. I want to live a simple life, and run a creative business... but I realize that can mean all kinds of things, and I am keeping my mind and my heart open for the next big adventure.
Mostly, lately... the ocean has been calling, and I can feel it seeping in, with inspiration and maybe even direction for my shop.
Have you ever made a big change that helped you get back to your center, your balance, your true place of self? This has been a slow but inspiring journey of a year so far. I've journaled about much of it, but haven't blogged as much... or instagramed as much... but I've missed you, and I'm excited to get back and start fresh with all of the things.
