Leading on from my epiphany the day before, my self-development and overall learning has started to naturally broaden, and I am starting to focus less on things specifically tied to my career development or future goals.
I have have decided to let my learning happen more organically, rather than forcing myself to learn about everything down a particular path, when perhaps the path I’d be most happy runs somewhere off to the side. The kind of path which is rarely used, and found only by feeling around for the rocks that used to show the way.
Queue entry of my sewing back into my life…
Although most of the people that will remember this aren’t really around anymore, I used to sew A LOT of my clothes in high school.
I’ve never actually known how to sew or construct clothes properly, so it was probably lucky that my style back then was some sort of fusion between bubblegum goth and punk rock! In actual fact, it was the very reason I did it. I didn’t want to wear the clothes in the shops, I wanted something different.
To a certain extent I am still this way. Unless im grinding away at home, I like wearing nice, chic, clothes and shoes, but I still like to have that alternative edge. It’s not often I find something that ticks both of these boxes.
So what the hell, out somes the sewing machine… All in. Day 67 also brought the addition of a few new sewing supplies including a dressmaking mannequin, which is already more than I used to manage with! And now that we can actually just type any problem we have into the nearest laptop or smartphone and get a range of solutions or ideas back, well… There’s no excuses not to be able to wear exactly what I want now is there?!
I hope you’re having a motivating, invigorating, crazy, fantastic, successful day today!
