1. Money: Hello, most of us are young graduates, bloggers, small business owners, creative professionals: that doesn't generally equate to rolling in dough. It doesn't mean that we won't rule the world later on, but let's give ourselves a break here and undertand that it's not because we occasionally post about Birkin bags and Milo Baughman furniture that we can actually afford those things.
2. Fear of Failure: This was omnipresent in yesterday's posts. People, this is NORMAL! I'm constantly afraid of sharing aspirations for fear that they won't come true. And some of them probably won't. It's part of life. Sharing our aspirations makes us accountable to pursuing them. It's one of the most recurring topics in advice on starting a business. Who cares if some of us fail. I'm sure no one will be there to judge, and if someone does, maybe blogland is not for them.
3. Blogland vs. reality: Most of us seem concerned that our lives seem much more glamorous than they actually are. Although I think most of us are really happy with our lives, that doesn't necessarily equate with manicured houses, closets full of designer clothes and agendas full of first-class travel and uppity social events. There's a strong blogger movement that wants to re-establish the more crude reality of our lives: messy houses, piles of work and dirty hair. I say bring it on.
Have you noticed any other recurring themes?
Lastly, I know I left you with very little interior-related inspiration these past couple of days, so I FINALLY uploaded all 86 photos of my antiquing trip to West Palm Beach's Antique Row on Savvy Home's Facebook page. Come and delve into the gorgeousness of my best antiquing day ever and let me know you dropped by!
