Last week I moved the furniture back and had a moment to sit and enjoy my beautiful space. And had a freak out. NOW WHAT!!!??? Big decisions need to be made, the day to day of bringing beautiful pieces out onto uncertain waters needs to commence again. My fear consumed me. All the negative voices flooding in telling me I hadn’t worked quickly enough, well enough and now I would fail. I would disappoint my partners and my ideas would never see the light of day. Etc. etc.
Except there is another part of me that finally waved its hands by the end of the week. A part of me that is insanely excited to share the new branding with you. Excited for you to see the photographs that tell this story. Excited for you to see everything that I have created from my dreams with the help of some extremely talented partners. To bring the missing pieces of the story together. With the Riding Denim, with the Riding Jacket I am building a story about what I want to see in this world. A world with beautiful, strong, courageous women taking their power and shaping our future. I’ve done my best to put this into context for you with my words, but meanwhile, I’ve begun to put together a creative team to give you something to feast your eyes on.
I still don’t know how the heck this is going to work out. How the pieces of the puzzle will come together. I can ask experts, I can ask friends, I can seek simple encouragement from supporters, but ultimately there is no way to know how it will come together. It is a new concept. It doesn’t fit into the traditional model. There is no program to follow. This is really f-ing scary. But I am grabbing hold of that courage I value in others and forging ahead.
Please Note: I will be on vacation for a few weeks and will resume the Weekly Letter June 13th. Thank you very much for all your support!
