Stand back and look at your life from afar, use a little creative imagination and look from the future back on this moment, what matters? When life throws you a few extra balls to juggle we’re forced into focusing on the ‘must’ list and letting go of the ‘wish’ list, which whilst it can be disappointing it also gives you the opportunity to really focus in and realise what matters most. The act of prioritising our lives can be a powerful thing. In the past few weeks I’ve realised that the world will keep spinning if I haven’t cleaned out my inbox and as Alexandra Franzen perfectly put it “when you die you won’t care about emails”. And whilst I’ve also realised how important the small everyday moments with family are, I’ve also realised that this, this space, this community, yes thats YOU reading this, is also what matters. My business matters not for the financial component or the external recognition, my business matters because of the community that exists around it, it matters because of the relationships, it matters because of the people. It’s the conversations and the stories that enrich my life, it’s the shared struggles, its celebrating each others success and it’s the support that you receive at exactly the moment that you need it. Communities matter. Over the next few months I’ll be sharing with you a new community that I’ve been working away in the background to create, it’s one for the creatives, the makers, the writers, the designers, the creators. It’s a place that I hope you’ll feel at home and I can’t wait to share more about it soon… Until then, enjoy a few of my favourite Friday finds…
