Sometimes the best thing you can do is to take a deep breath and wipe the slate clean. Plans and ideas and dreams don't materialise in the way you thought they would or should and you have to take a moment to reconcile yourself to the reality you are faced with, not the one you thought you would have. I have learnt this lesson well this year however it has only been in the last few weeks that I have understood what the universe has been trying to teach me. I'm going to be 29 at the end of this month and if 28 has shown me anything it's that sometimes you have to strip it back right down to the bone, take it right back to the source in order to build a thing that is good, a thing that you really love.
When you take the time to pause and really examine something, dress it down and build it up to what it should be it can be exhausting and heartbreaking and liberating and exciting. And the end result is always more honest. We launched our Crowdfunder campaign two weeks ago today and we have already received a huge amount of support. When you put so much of yourself in to a project you create an emotional attachment and since the launch I have found that my anxiety has reared it's ugly head and I have let my brain be clouded with negative ideas that this won't be the success I have imagined. I have realised that this takes away from the enjoyment of the journey and instead am trying to accept what it is and what it will be. By trying to focus on what I can do and accepting what I can't I'm cultivating a much more honest view of Daughters progress.
So if you are feeling overwhelmed stop, take a breath and strip it down to the bare bones. You're doing the best you can.
