Are Mondays your most-likely-to-be-creatively-braindead day? Ooohhh, they are for me. I'm not working a Monday-Friday schedule, but I still find them discouraging. Infact, Mondays are often a creative forfeit for me. And I've learned that if I don't jump in right away...creatively embracing the week...days can pass before I pick up my camera. Or handcraft something. Or even write a little ditty.
But I believe that Monday can be just as inspired as any other day of the week. If I try. So, I'm starting a little series called I Believe In Mondays, where I'll rattle off a few things I genuinely support. From the serious to the silly. The frivolous to the ridiculous. Things that brighten my life and bolster my spirits. Mostly a stab at forcefed creativity, I'm hoping that that by taking my first creative breath early in the week, Mondays will become just the beginning of a week blooming with inspiration...rather than a day which slips by with nary an artistic effort made. Ready? Okay!
This week I believe...
...in buying shirts from the Selena Gomez little girl's collection at Kmart. (See above.) At $7, there ain't no shame!
...in falling more in love with my fiance every day. Seriously, it's happening. This is a BIG surprise to me, and has disproven my long-held theory that engagement + marriage would be a slow, downward slope into dwindling affection. And it's dispelled my lifelong fears that I might go Runaway Bride on my wedding day. (More on this Runaway Bride business later.)
...in spray paint as the single most effective tool in any DIY decorator's toolbox.
...in crossbody purses. Finally. I was torn for months, but now I've learned: It's the easy peasiest way to carry a whole lotta junk, hands free. Snatch up a similar style here.
...that PMS is always a valid one week excuse for hopping off a diet + exercise regimen. Can I get an amen?
...in posting photos, even when they're imperfect. Like the one above.
What do you believe in today...or every day? Do tell!
