Happy Thursday Tribe! 🙂
I have been moving at warp speed for the past month and a half. Personal life, business life, social life and work life all swirling around me like a tornado of crazy. I’m basically keeping my head on straight thanks to Christie over at Jewels Branch for introducing my inner psychotic Virgo to Bullet Journal. It’s a method of to-do list organization and it’s dead on sponge-worthy. Of course I’m breaking the rules – using my precious post-its and color tabs when the bullet journal method alone is supposed to be enough. Well, let me tell you for ME, it’s not. I need my tabby color loves. Hey, you gotta take it and make it work for YOU!
Things are beginning to move + shake with The Darshana Collective. My logo and branding is complete thanks to Cerries at Heart Your Brand. I am over the moon about the colors of the logo (hello rainbow, lover) and the symbolism behind its visionary eye. One of these days I will post about its deign evolution, because it’s awesome.
I decided that today (Thursday) will be my Friday. I’m taking a personal day tomorrow to do some personal stuff (like how that works?!). Just one of those things is a lil trip to NYC to see a gorgeous, long time pal of mine. We’ve known each other since we were about 4 years old. Some of my first memories include her- in purple corduroy skirts, orange knit tights and nubuck clogs in the early years. On a skateboard rolling down Orchard Terrace with a boom box on her shoulder cranking out License to Ill in those awkward pre-teen years. During our high school years, in a pick up truck with a dent on every corner. And me bossing her around, telling her, her shit didn’t match, she was being weird and driving like a maniac! What a jerk! Like I was some Adirondack fashonista in my Jordasche jeans and Sasson purse and feathered hair. It’s a damn good thing she didn’t let little miss bossypants dim her sparkle.
Cause man, does this girl shine…these days she does this in LA:
Funny how time changes things and we evolve. I’m no longer barking fashion criticisms, I’m pretty sure she’s no longer rocking orange knit tights (though I may stand corrected), but the world still needs our sparkle. The world needs more Lolly
on a skateboard, playin smooth jazz because that’s her gift. She’s at her best when she’s behind her vibraphone.
I’m at my best when I’m connecting + inspiring. In order for me to do that, I need a fucking time out! The world needs my sparkle, so I am taking a time out.
If you’ve been teaching too much, working too much (or even playing too much), if your cup is empty, don’t forget to filler up and take a T. O. because….
TGIF to me!
