I know I’m not the only one who didn’t live up to their own expectations, people fail at resolutions every year, but this time I decided to scale it back a little to actually give myself a fighting chance.
I honestly threw my hands in the air and yelled in frustration,
“It’s just not fair! Some people are so stinkin’ creative it makes me sick!
Why can’t I ever think of anything???”
please, Please, PLEASE, someone tell me I’m not the only person who has gotten jealous of an amazing blog and
overreacted this way. . . You should know, I”ve always been insanely jealous of people who have the ability to draw well!
Anyway Ant, who I didn’t know was even listening, said something profound and supportive about knowing this woman who was super creative if she’d only give herself a chance. He’d seen her make some really amazing things over the years. Blah-dy, blah, blah… Of course neither of us can remember the exact wording right now, but it was a good moment for him. He can barely remember saying anything at all, but still I’ll take what I can get. (That sort of thing doesn’t happen too often around here.) So this year I chose just two ideas to focus on…
#1. Quit worrying about what everyone else is doing, what is “popular” right now and what I feel is expected of me from a blogging stand point. Work instead on making my own designs, and focusing on sharing my personal style even if it might not be conventional. I’ve never been an “in” type of girl. Why start now?
#2. STOP PROCRASTINATING!
Hopefully if I’ve been able to follow through with those two resolutions,
most of my other goals about not stressing, going out, putting myself together, and
getting more sewing done, will fall into place. *fingers crossed*
It would be nice to…
Now tell me honestly, do you get jealous of the bloggers you follow?
I can’t be the only one who feels the pressure. Right?
Did anyone say anything sweet that helped you feel better about it?
I know we tend to put more pressure on ourselves than anyone else ever could!
P.S. Yes, I know the pictures have absolutely nothing to do with this post, and that the Ryan Gosling thing is “so 2 months ago!”, but 1. I needed some pictures and 2. these still make me smile every stinkin’ time.
Just nod, smile, and go visit my Hey Girl pin board! ;D
