there are moments that just spill into my mind and i find myself thinking i really want to see what this looks like.
i was standing in forever21 looking at all of their fun jewelry and my eyes landed on a set of 3 septum “clip-on” type pieces. i found myself wandering into many mystical places – a woman with long flowing hair in a long dress wandering through the woods with a pretty jewel hanging from her septum.
since that wasn’t in the cards at the moment – i strolled in from the pool, freckled out, and had the urge to just try.
try a self portrait that made me step out of my zone for a moment.
a small amount of mascara and black liner, a darker lip color than i ever actually wear, and a septum ring that is stunning but i would never have the gusto to wear out in public. 😉
and as i clicked away with my remote and heard the shutter capture frames – i doubted.
i doubted if what i envisioned would fall into place.
would these pictures see the light of day?
would anyone think i was vain for doing a self portrait.
could i judge myself on the uneven lipstick?
doubt can suck the life out of creativity.
and i almost let it.
and then i said who cares?
i was inspired by this small piece of jewelry.
it sparked something that had been dull for a while – the ability to see myself in a new light.
and i’m not going to let doubt be a thief.
not for this moment.
so i let creativity win.
when was the last time you let yourself breathe – where creativity seeped in and had a moment to dance?
what inspires you, and brings you joy?
i would love to hear all about it.
