I love these two words: LET GO. Holding on to the past and worrying about the future hinders and impedes growth and forward movement. Our eyes become distracted from the goal—we slow in our steps. Instead of running the race with perseverance, I sometimes find myself looking sideways in unsure, restricted motion.
London has cleared a space and opened up my eyes, heart, and mind to a fresh perspective. I am continuing to let go. In my journal I wrote: “Something inside of me has been released. I feel less confined”. A door has been opened for me, and I have excitedly walked through.
All around me people are different. I am surrounded by a new culture of elegant diction, incredible architecture, and exquisite dress. There is a freedom to express yourself through fashion—a greater freedom that the Pacific Northwest has to offer.
In Design Development class today we discussed our sketchbooks—books to be filled with tear sheets and illustrations. I was challenged to break outside of my comfort zone and let go, allowing my pen and mind work in free-flowing expression. I feel myself slowly releasing, and I hope to continue this forward movement.
Today was a good day!
This picture was taken last night with friends and flat mates on our way to Fifty-Five—a local bar near our flat...Sarah in the green jacket understands the meaning of "letting go" :) .
