for the risk-takers

For the launch of the Forms II crewneck for my #LoveYourShorelines project – I want to talk about what the choice to be bold means to me.
This year has been full of firsts. As I embark on this new adventure of being a full time artist, I often find myself in unchartered territory. I’m making decisions and choices with no concrete precedents. For a period of time I felt like I was free-falling which was important because it forced me be more assertive than I naturally am.
There is nothing like being totally in charge of your day, of where your money is coming from or when you spend it. You’re forced to self-motivate (alot!) and make moves based on instinct and intuition. The higher the stakes, the deeper I dig to make the choices that are right for me. The unapologetic boldness of radical self-love and self-belief for me has equaled to overall happiness. I still fall into patterns of berating myself or getting obsessed with getting things perfect. But I am more effective in stepping out of these patterns which allows me to live with less second guessing and inhibition and more freedom.
