• Being asked to do the most amazing commissions eg. 10 year anniversary gifts and then receiving the most beautiful feedback

Day 26  • B O O K S • B L O G S • & • P O D C A S T S 

I used to be a voracious reader and the smell of old books is still one of my favourite smells! However, in this depressingly digital age my concentration span has diminished to that of a gnat and I find it so hard to concentrate on reading an actual book. Having said, I am currently really enjoying @mattzhaig‘s “How to Stop Time” and I’m hoping this will spur me into reading more again.

I also make time every morning to read some spiritual or psychology literature to guide my thinking onto more ‘healthy’ lines – current books on the go are Brene Brown’s “The Gifts of Imperfection” and Kristen Neff’s “Self -Compassion”. Eckhart Tolle is always lurking around somewhere but I have yet to integrate his teachings!

Regarding work-related books/ blogs/ podcasts I don’t read or listen to any! I get my inspiration from instagram and you tube and most recently, meet ups with real people (local creatives & small business owners) that I set up a couple months back to combat my loneliness!
