Summer break is over, and I hope you had a great and inspirational one, just like me!
Back to work and back to normal – I wished!
But: I feel stuck!
Yes, my label CUBELIN is all about inspiration. But honestly, right now, I have no idea in which direction to go further.
In my head I have tons of ideas I would love to elaborate and I try to work them out. But I can´t see the connection and how I can relate them with my business.
I always hear those judging questions in my head:
„Gabi, why are you starting to weave now? This doesn´t make any sense!“
„How on earth will you earn money with painting a chair – and are you particularly allowed to do that ?
„May I use acrylics on textiles, or will something terrible happen if I do so?
And though I keep telling myself YES, YES, YOU ARE ALLOWED!….I feel like constantly breaking the rules and this is really exhausting.
So how can I deal with that?
I was lucky to find some great advice by a rock musician you still might know from that wonderful 80s band, The Eurythmics: Dave Stewart.
He is offering it in the free App „Creativity lite“, and it´s actually an excerpt from his book „Business Playground“.
If you feel anything like me, stuck and not seeing the point in doing what you´re doing, it´s really worthwile listening to it.
Here´s the link to the app (it might only work on an Ipad!):
Just listening to those short stories was so helpful for me to feel better about what I am doing now. (Even if I still don´t know, where this is leading me to.)
And I keep on experimenting!
I´m also still looking for the best and most useful way of sharing ideas and inspirations with you.
Writing these letters means a lot to me, as they feel like an important part of my journey.
Thank you for being with me and I will keep in touch!
Lots of love!
