In a perfect world, I’d have a bottomless closet with outfit options ready to style every week, with content to post here and across all my socials on the regular.
To be honest, I’m actually sitting on a few outfits I’ve yet to share, but haven’t had the opportunity to style/shoot them yet. After kicking the year off with such well shot outfits and 3 consecutive weeks of content, I don’t want to settle for anything of lower quality, and somehow, self shot photos just don’t quite compare. Am I being too picky? That, and the fact that the weather is next to impossible to comfortably shoot in (today feels like -10 degrees celsius, so the thought of trying to shoot an outfit outside makes me shiver!), and my indoor space isn’t exactly ideal or spacious enough to be doing it inside.
Going into this week I was already a little down on myself for my lack of material, but where I would have previously let that spiral into a feeling of defeat and like I’ve failed when I started the year out so strong, I reminded myself that it’s okay. I want to share and create content because I LIKE to, and at no point should it become something that creates stress or feelings of self-doubt or failure.
My productivity journal has remained blank this week though I’ve made a few mental notes for what I want to accomplish, I haven’t been as diligent at writing things down. Probably partially because I hit a bit of a wall where I didn’t know exactly what I wanted to accomplish. There was a quote in my journal last week though, that kinda resonates with me this week and is keeping me feeling positive moving into next. “Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can.” — Arthur Ashe. I feel like that’s exactly what I’m doing. And that is enough.
Until next week,
