TGIF: Thank Goodness I Found...

...Truth and Inspiraton

In life, the grass is always greener. The new is most always better than the old. Why? Human nature, I guess. The American way. Live the dream, you know? 

Our friend Lily, with Hart and Honey, shared how she often experiences an overall feeling of discontent and frustration amongst creative types. A feeling of wanting to be more creative than you are. The feeling of frustration often comes from comparison. Laurie and I have often been victims of these feelings. 

Never being completely satisfied with what you do is, I think, healthy. There is always room for growth and learning. However, I constantly struggle with looking for ways to improve versus beating myself up for not being as awesome as ______. 

Sometimes I find less frustrating forms of inspiration in art of our past. For me, there is something simple and beautiful in old photos. And I do less comparison and more learning. I think I can speak for Laurie too in saying the history of good design is just as important as current, if not more so. 

TGIF. Go enjoy your weekend and find inspiration! And maybe take a break from the Internet (world wide web of comparisons!). What inspires you? We would love to hear!!

-Alison and Laurie
