This piece was created as a part of my 2016 project #AbstractAffirmationsDaily where I share an abstract piece of art with a positive message every day. Here's the story that accompanies this piece, posted on 4/15/2016:
Today Jason and I are flying back to Florida for a dear friend of mine’s wedding. Despite the marathon travel day to get back to the East Coast, honestly this trip couldn’t be better timed. I’ve been in a bit of a frenzy the past two weeks, feeling stretched a little thinner than I’d like to be, but I know the only way to transition out of that state is to give myself the space I need to rest. To focus on something else besides Made Vibrant and the business, even if it’s just for a little while.
That’s the danger in being a driven person who loves what they do — it’s too easy to fall into the trap of wanting to be ON all the time. But I think some of it comes from a fear that if we stop running full speed, if we tap out of the ring to take a breather, that maybe we’ll blink and it will all be gone. But that’s ridiculous, isn’t it?! We didn’t build businesses overnight, and they won’t be erased over night either. It’s OKAY to press pause. To walk away, to reflect, and to have some fun! In fact, often it’s that break which propels us back into a renewed state of creativity and motivation.
So, this weekend, I’m going to do my best to press pause on some things. I’m going to soak up the experience of being near my friends, of laughing like I’m in college again, and of celebrating a friend (and her new husband!) for whom I am very grateful.
Wishing you a weekend of rest and joy too! The world will still be there when we press play again!
