If teardrops could be bottled
There’d be swimming pools filled by models
Told a tight dress is what makes you a whore…
Sometimes I get to a breaking point – and the things that push me there are different each time. But they usually seem overwhelming, when in all reality they are likely inconsequential. However, the people that drag me out are sometimes the most unlikely.
Designers *have* to focus on their brand – and what is best for them. That may manifest itself in many different ways, depending on the brand and the Designer, but that focus remains the same… they have to do what is best, ultimately, for their brand.
I say this, and reiterate it, so that it is made clear I understand this. I designed briefly… though I worked with re-texturing templates, so some of you wouldn’t call that ‘real’ designing, and wouldn’t call me a ‘real’ creator. But nevertheless, when I was doing what I did, my sole focus was on what would be best for my brand… what events would I align with, what bloggers would I bring in, would I do charity events, etc. Could I trust the people I was working with?
And if I’m going through those questions in my mind, I can imagine that other Designers go through those same sorts of questions – and perhaps more, if their brand is bigger.
So it’s rare that I let a decision a Designer makes get to me – because ultimately I know that those decisions are made with a lot of the above factors in mind. Sometimes, though, I slip, and I let myself get in my feelings. Recently, I let that happen, and I was strongly considering removing any Designer Partnerships that I currently had and just blogging for the hell of it, what I purchased, and leaving it at that.
I didn’t feel ‘good enough’ for the partnerships I’d been blessed with.
However, sometimes I forget that the Designers I choose to align myself with and work with are pretty amazing people. And they never do anything maliciously or with the intention to upset anyone. Perhaps recent professional endeavors had soured me on the genuine good nature of people… but some of my faith in humanity has been restored.
I just wanted to say thank you to those of you who put up with me… lol. You put up with my rambling posts, you put up with my RL being as hectic as it has been this year so far… and I am honored to work with each and every one of you.
