I’ve been thinking about @anthonybourdain and Kate Spade a lot lately. The news of their suicide really hit something for me.
Perhaps because they were both creative I deeply admired, doing exactly the kind of jobs I can only aspire to (travel show! ✨ fashion line!✨). Speaking of mental health, my anxiety can get very bad, and on especially exhausting days simple things like stepping onto a bus makes my body feel like it’s walking into a lion’s den.
I love the quote ‘life shrinks and expands in proportion to ones courage’ but sometimes it’s okay to not feel brave, to just let ourselves be and not feel guilty about not pushing ourselves.
While I know we are living in the golden age of the #girlboss and it seems like everyone’s a fabulous entrepreneur. And it seems like if you don’t consistently push yourself you are falling behind.
Sometimes you don’t feel like blooming and that’s OKAY TOO. Know that these feelings will pass and one day (probably very soon) the wish to remain tight as a bud will give way to your need to blossom. 🌷🌱
