I started my business last year and oh my was I scared! Fear has stopped me from doing so many things in my life. All of the moments I didn't do something because of fear could fill up days and weeks, maybe even months of my life. You know all the times when ... you don't not voice your ideas, you don't not approach a person you think is interesting, you stay in the same old pattern because it's just fine. While I was thrilled about my new creative adventure, you should see me shake as I drove to a local shop to offer my designs. I almost turned around and went home. As time passed, I got tired of all of this fear nonsense.
I needed a boost, a reminder of my inner courage. So, I recorded the words "F**k It!" as they seemed to be a little more convincing than just "Go for it!" ... I used the image of the sound wave as a textile pattern and sewed a scarf out of the fabric. I wore it in new situations; I rushed into my closet to put it on as a potential business connection called my cell phone. For a little bit, that scarf became my signature look. I din't tell anybody about the idea behind my design; I didn't feel the need.
