S N E A K P E A K : The design of the @peakchocolate single serve display box is still in progress but it’s starting to come together nicely. Now I’m making mock ups at 100% of the actual size so i can see if things are sitting correctly or if font sizes are too big or small. Its really easy to miss big issues when you leave design on your computer screen so mockups are really important. Im looking forward to showing off the final design soon
I write this story, this chapter, this line of life. The world a mirror for all I hold inside. I know this. I love this. And yet... I still have days where I feel fragile and soft tender and raw unsure like my human self can’t quite fit with my soul self and the anxious part of me gets loud. Days like this I feel remnants of that little girl in me, the one that wanted to reward for so long but had a voice that came out like a peep. I cradle her. I have compassion for her.
But I can’t let her lead.
I won’t let her lead. •••
Because she’s not the heroine of this story. She may be in the opening scene but she’s not the fiery female that we see in the end. She doesn’t get to close the movie. She’s not the one that writes the script. I love that little girl but she’s not the boss of me. She used to rule and I remember it well... life felt painful and I felt lost. Sometimes it seems easier to succumb to that little girl voice, the one that whispers visions of worst-case scenarios. It’s such a fucking familiar way to live. It’s the way were taught to live. Hey, despair is a dark and seductive friend... but not when I want to play with.
The medicine I need, when the little girl fear creeps up consists of part fire part grace. The grace part is prayer and writing and walks and good food. The fire part is action. Not any action, but action that lines up with the script I desire to write. Action that the Heroine takes. Action that the soul screams YES to, while the little girl says I’m afraid. •••
This is the elixir I drink when I need a dose of magic it reminds me this is the elixir I drink when I need a dose of magic. It reminds me...
We are the ones that make our art and create our world. We are the ones that write our story. We can tremble with doubt and jump anyway. We are the heroines of this sexy freaky mysterious roller coaster of a beautiful life. •••
PS. Sending love to you and any fears you may be moving through today
