I've been feeling pretty down lately. Often, like others, I don't think I'll ever be good enough at anything. That my work won't match up to the standard of others. That my ideas won't be taken seriously... that I'll be laughed at or belittled.
But realisically I know that I'm putting myself out there and doing what I LOVE. So does it really matter what others think? I saw this gorgeous quote tonight and I think I it need make it my new mantra.
“Be daring, be different, be impractical, be anything that will assert integrity of purpose and imaginative vision against the play-it-safers, the creatures of the commonplace, the slaves of the ordinary.” - Cecil Beaton
And with that I'm off to sew:)
