Day 97 - Old Soles.
Day 97 - Hi ya! So, who else thought yesterday's post was a bit of a mess? Clean Beauty? Am I running out of ideas? Gulp. I'd like to blame the messy post on: 1) The death of my DSLR camera. 2) Generating ideas everyday is killing my creative juices and perspective. 3) Waking up with two tiny feet in my face at 4:00am. 4) No donut Tuesday. No matter what the excuse, I need to stop being such a diva. Let's get back to talking about this blog and serious creating.
After yesterday's disappointing post, I needed cleaning therapy. After, picking up all the stray laundry, I headed directly to my closet to weed out old stuff and do a little spring cleaning. As I took a closer look at a high waisted jean skirt that seemed like a good idea three years ago, I looked down at the shoe boxes lining my closet floor.
What is is about shoes? As I opened each box, it occurred to me that each pair has their own time, place, character and job. For example, the cowboy boots I bought 10 years ago always make me feel like kicking dirt and causing a ruckus. The 5" gold, stiletto high heels scream powerful like Beyonce being Beyonce. The Birkenstocks are like a pair of old slippers that are so comfortable they will be forever permanently installed on my feet and be my best friends.
Each of these old soles are diverse, their character is wide and they directly represent some portion of me. Just like each of these blog posts, they all work together to create something bigger. Yes, yesterday's post was a hot mess. It's ok. The point of this blog is no matter how messy, create and change will follow. That's it.
Today, let's work on being bigger. Write down three things that you want to create today. Draw a box around it. Now draw a bigger box around the smaller box. What will this larger box contain tomorrow? What about the next day? And the next. Let's work together and get bigger.
That's it for today. Gotta get back cleaning!
