If you're anything like me, sometimes inspiration can be hard to come by (hence the five-month gap between blog posts). I know in this modern world, where it's all too easy to design the image of ourselves we want others to see, it's not often that the people you look up to seem, well, human. Between their designer wardrobes, product lines and television shows, and children straight from the crewcuts catalog, these people just seem from some other planet -- do they ever have to pick up dog poop? Do their dogs even poop at all? Do they ever have days that they just want to stay in bed with the covers pulled over their heads and watch a running loop of "Dr. Phil" re-runs?
Well, they may not, but I do. Sometimes the realities of life make feeling inspired not only a stretch, but not much of a priority, frankly. That being said, a little inspiration is sometimes all you need to rip off those covers and face your life head on.
I don't have any great sources of inspiration to share--although I do like some of these ideas, cheesy as they may be. Today, no amazing new sources for the perfect side table, nor any news of the business's latest success. Sometimes in life, getting through the day is all you can muster, and even that can feel like (and might even be) a huge achievement. But for me, right now in my life, it's inspiring to realize that no matter what you're doing in and with your life, you can change it. Give it all away. Close the doors. Open a window. Pack up the moving truck. Start the new business. Take the leap.
At the end of the day, doesn't it sounds great to give it all away and finally start living? Maybe it's just me.
