I know, I know . . . now you have the song in your head! The first of the week is typically labeled with dread and seriousness for most. Poor Monday has never had a chance following Sunday. A wise one once told me to treat yourself on a Monday! Wear that favorite scarf or outfit! Grab a coffee with an extra pump of syrup. Do something for someone else! Whatever you do enjoy where and who you are in life.
In the midst of a family portrait session recently, I began to channel the little girl sense of humor and dreamy imagination side of myself in hopes to get two little girls to smile and be themselves naturally in front of the crazy blonde with the camera. In that spiral, I started singing "Let it Go" from Frozen and as a typical "NOT MOM" I did not know the words, but I tried with a passion! It got me thinking . . . and them smiling:)
As an adult ( I just heard a huge sigh!? ) every day I battle entertaining stress and dressing up as Sophisticated Serious Barbie. A splash of sophistication and serious is NEVER a bad thing. However, I find no matter how many outfits I try on to make up who I long to be . . . at the end of day, true colors and the "real me" outfit looks and feels the best. The simplicity of sticking to my true self, trusting my intuition and skill set always gets the best creative results. Also attracting the very people and projects I want to be surrounded by. Working for advertising agencies and now as business owner, dressing the part takes on an entire NEW meaning. I have to be true to myself, clients and projects Pulling out the best visual, story, or design!
