Forgive me if this post is all over the place, but I've got some writing to get to for work, but I'm stalled until I deliver this thought baby currently gestating in my mind. I'm feeling inspired lately. And that's significant for me. This past year or so has been a whirlwind. It's been full of loss, life, and changes of all sorts. Like life tends to do, it threw me off balance, and it had my drive and creativity in a state of limbo. There's always been a bunch of dreams floating around in my heart, just like in your heart, but I think the tough part is figuring out how to navigate the path you're on so you merge with the path you seek.
"I am learning all the time. The tombstone will be my diploma." - Eartha Kitt
The above quote from Ms. Kitt makes me think about how nobody ever, ever, has it all figured out. Our role models, mentors, spiritual leaders... they might not have their life figured out any more than the next person, and that's okay. Even if you do think you have things figured out, chances are something will happen to flip that upside down, too. And that's okay. Everybody is always learning. I learn more about myself everyday, and things are changing everyday, which means there will always be new things to learn.
And so, in the spirit of learning, I'm checking out these print resources - thought I'd share :)
- Brand Famous, by Linzi Boyd - released on my birthday, last year, so kudos to the publisher for that one.
- My So-Called Freelance Life, by Michelle Goodman - an oldie by modern standards, but still very much a goodie. I read it fresh out of college, and have recently rediscovered its goodness.
- The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, by Marie Kondo - this woman has basically written all my and my mother's tidying rules out in prose format, but apparently she's explained it in a way that's revolutionary for so many people, in which case I'm spreading the love.
