    Growing up, I hated Art. And by that, I mean I hated drawing and painting because I sucked so badly at it. Now as I’m getting older, I realize Art isn’t just about putting a pen in your hand. It’s about self-expression through many forms. For me, public art installations are my favorite kind of Art. I know it takes a lot of time and courage for an artist to execute their vision so to see their work displayed to the public is inspiring. I never judge anyone’s work of art and @janetechelman aerial sculpture for #BOLDBH is my recent favorite!

    Solo entrepreneurs, artists, what are you doing to cultivate community in your own life? I have worked for myself since 2010 and I’m not sure what I would do without my support system. See, it’s easy to wake up every day, put in the hours from home and fade into your work and never come up for air. I learned early on in my career how important it is to not make yourself an island. My two best friends, I met them through a photography conference. Not one day goes by where I don’t talk to them, laugh together and lean on each other for support. Life is not meant to be done alone so say hello, reach out and build community in your life ❤️ 👉🏻Photo of one of my besties @brethurston and I at one of my favorite neighborhood bars @bsidesac taken by the ever talented @amandabellamyphoto

    I laid him down and he’ll wake up a one year old. He’s my dream boy. Everything I ever wanted in a baby boy. My tiny boyfriend. And now that I’m like 😭 looking at all of these pictures I’m 💯 going to get him out of his bed and going to snuggle him. Night 😭 night 😭.

But the irony is that to a group of ambitious, successful women, the much harder action is to slow down. Full speed ahead ambition and success? We got that. We can easily turn it on and make shit happen and ride the highs and navigate the lows of that pace. Light it up, fire it off, burn it down... we’ve been there, done that, rebuilt, pivoted, adjusted and done it all again dozens of times. ⁣
⁣
What’s harder is to get off the roller coaster that’s barreling down the tracks. Stepping aside while the strong current keeps flowing at full speed to take a moment to breathe and regroup. ⁣
⁣
Yet there was that one afternoon on day three, when everyone’s separate pace finally slowed down and aligned... all the chaos of work and life melted away with us in the pool... and we were all present and alive and it was magic. That’s the kind of connection I’m looking for. And that’s the kind of connection worth picking a date and booking a flight for even when you haven’t seen each other in a year or so as life speeds up. ⁣
⁣
We have to be aware of these currents of pace that aren’t natural to how we operate, or aren’t sustainable to be fully immersed in for too long. We have to remember that we are in the driver’s seat and we can’t be full speed ahead at all times. We have to manage the ebbs and flows of our pace so that we don’t continually burn out and become shells of our whole selves. ⁣
⁣
Whether just for a few hours or a few days or a few years... slowing down is absolutely crucial to your sanity, creativity, quality of life and work. Pump those brakes and don’t lose yourself in the current. ⁣

    Five girl friends met up in Maui. ⁣
⁣
It has me thinking a lot about pace. Each of us showed up to this vacation pace from a different life pace. One from a been-running-full-speed-ahead-for-years-and-deep-in-full-on-fuck-you-success pace, another in the been-there-on-the-entrepreneurial-boss-status-and-now-chasing-a-three-year-old-around pace, another in the just-took-the-self-made-leap-and-soaring pace, another in the simple-life-but-building-an-empire-and-a-family pace... ⁣
⁣
And then there’s me, coming from a self-declared-retirement-but-deep-in-the-thick-of-an-epic-spiritual-journey pace, where this vacation— even with it’s chill one-restaurant-reservation-per-day pace— is a speed up from my usual no-human-interaction-and-nothing-on-the-calendar pace. ⁣
⁣
Pace. It’s so fluid. Sometimes the current is strong and aggressive and full of force, other times it’s just a slow trickle as the water flows back from a gentle wave on the sand. ⁣
⁣
What this very different crew all has in common is that we are all the ones with our foot on the gas (or brake.) We are all fully in tune with the pace that we want and are either going full throttle or gently pumping the brakes to slow down to adjust to our mindset and priorities. [continued in next post...]

Something a little different from my usual posts: the lighting in my room is terrible, I failed miserably at stop motion and I finally came up with this (photoshop pros please don’t slate my first attempt at layering objects into a photo 🙈). Anyway... on a more positive note, I had to showcase my beeeeautiful personalised map of Scotland from @mapiful. Scotland is very special to me for a thousand and one reasons, but the most special moment has to be Dan, Daisy, Hamish and I’s roadtrip up to the Isle of Skye earlier this year. We pushed limits (physically and mentally) but it was a trip that created such a special bond between the 4 of us and my Mapiful map reminds me of that feeling every time. •
What country/city sparks the most fondest memory for you?

    I read recently that the average household does between 300-400 loads of laundry per year! 👀🌏It's true that small acts of love at home can make a big impact on the planet and lately I've been inspired to make small changes each day with the goal of being a little more eco-friendly. A few simple ways I've changed up my laundry routine:
1️⃣ supporting brands that use recyclable bottles and recycled materials.
2️⃣ only washing clothes when they actually NEED it... @lovehomeandplanet dry wash spray is like dry shampoo for my denim!
3️⃣ using cruelty-free products with ethically sourced extracts
4️⃣ hang things out to dry... it'll last way longer too! 🌏 If you have any simple eco-friendly changes you've made in your home, please share! #smallactsoflove #LoveHomeandPlanet #ad
