I'm writing this post, because I need to write it for myself.
I get so inspired by life and others chasing their dreams and doing their own thing- I forget what I'm trying to do, what my soul is telling me I need to do, which is simply, write. I must put pen to paper.
The world is getting smaller and smaller with social media. Have you ever gone to the "explore" tab on Instagram? You can view squares of people's lives half way around the world. It's insane to me, in an awesome way! Instagram also allows you to follow your favorite companies and brands, which is great, but it also puts you in a box of comparison, which is where I've found myself over the past month and a half or so. I see all the successful start up shops, doing the coolest things! Things I would love to do and know I can do with a little practice! It's like I have dreamers ADD. I want to do anything and everything creative!
So I start chasing my writing dream and then bam, I find myself in love with photography (because photos enhance words, right?), so I pursue photography. Then I find myself wanting to make my own camera straps--so I'm buying a sewing machine!! That sewing machine leads to falling in love with home decorating and DIY projects. OOH! Wait, I remember, I love writing, writing is aligned with calligraphy. Calligraphy can help my writing and my home decorating--maybe I'm going to be one of the great calligraphy artists of this day and age!
People! I just went from a writer to a sewing champion to an interior designer to a calligraphy artist! And to be completely honest, I would love to do all those things, but I cannot. And I will never be successful at any one thing if I can't really dedicate all my focus to one thing.
So this is for all my other dreamers out there wanting to do everything. We just need to focus. Focus on the thing you need to do, that comes to you innately. That's what you're supposed to be doing.
The whole point of this post is to say; I'm back. I'm here; writing. Every day I just need to wake up and remind myself; write. (I'm still getting a sewing machine though). Happy Friday, friends! Go bring some HAPPY!
