I would firstly like to apologize for being distant with my blogging…it has been too long!
It was nice to be home from SCAD for 6 weeks and seeing family after a tough quarter was worth it. I’m not sure if they will ever understand how hard I worked, especially during finals week, but they can see it through how I am changing as a designer and through the motivation that continues to push me.
With 6 weeks you’d think I would have plenty of time to design right?
I planned on sewing up a storm over break but time just slipped through my fingers so quickly! I managed to finish a couple of pieces but I plan to continue working on them before showing them. Maybe over spring break. 😦
Don’t worry, I am getting back into blogging now that I am back in Savannah, and I have many people interested in some great collaborations! I also am going to interview some amazing artists this quarter and will be featuring them here on my blog!
I spent most of my break catching up with family, hanging out with friends, and traveling a bit! I spent Thanksgiving in New York with my family, and after Christmas I enjoyed a vacation to Cancun with my mom and sisters!
I really do not know where the time went. I was lazy at times, slept in, watched Netflix, but I deserve that! But looking back now, I wish I would have pushed myself to do a bit more designing. I might have said that I was going to do some things that I didn’t end up doing, and I apologize for that.
A lot of my break was spent alone being bored out of my mind, waiting for my friends to return from their colleges for break. Take that back, I wasn’t bored out of my mind. I used this time to really self-love.
Most people that are close to me know that I am a big ball of stress that overthinks things and who is a major perfectionist. I’ve been focusing on bettering myself and loving myself for who I am. I have been doing little things such as waking up early, taking baths, baking, and taking walks. As silly and simple as these things sound, they have helped me to be one with myself. Sometimes it helps to put the phone down, to go outside, and to be one within the world and to simply just breathe.
It’s hard to “just breathe”. When you aren’t glued to your phone or engaging in activity, all you have is your thoughts. I’ve been focusing on putting my thoughts into words. It is so hard sometimes. I strive to be that poet that can write something so simple, yet so perfect. I find myself reading quotes and poetry on a daily basis, and it amazes me how perfectly another human can portray exactly what I’m thinking or how I am feeling.
I’ve been thinking about all sorts of things lately, so when it comes to writing, I don’t even know where to begin. But it’s something that I am working on, and another form of self-love for me. If you want to know where to begin with self-love, I’m working on a post right now allllll about it 🙂
I hope that everyone had a great Holiday season and here is to the new year! So much is to come for Felicia Murray Designs, and I can’t wait to continue this amazing journey with you all. I can’t thank the people who continue to support me everyday enough. I LOVE YOU ALL.
