This morning on my Facebook feed I found something amazing.
No worries, it’s not a political post, but it is about something we can all agree on. SHOES!
Toms shoes, those cute tennis shoes that Pinterest Experts love to pain all sorts of cute designs on. Well, Toms has partnered with Disney to feature never before sketches and drawings from classic movies like Snow White, Cinderella, and Sleeping Beauty.
I know what you’re probably thinking. “Yeah, okay. That’s cute, but why is this newsworthy?”
I’ll tell you! Because these “lost” drawings and sketches are from the ALL FEMALE artists of the 1930’s-1950’s that went largely unrecognized.
Finally, those who put in hours of hard work, blood, sweat, and tears will be featured on shoes that we can all look at everyday. Appreciate!
This brings me to ask you–what projects have you “lost” or really promised would never see the light of day because you were sure they were terrible?
What if you pulled up an old project and gave it a read through? Could you pat yourself on the back and tell yourself you’ve come a long way with your writing? Or would you tell yourself, “This isn’t half bad. I should do something productive with this.”
Anything we’ve done with our writing, with our creative spirit is worth appreciation. Even if it’s terrible, it’s a step, a validation to our souls that tell us we’re doing something new and different.
So celebrate your “lost” works. You never know. You might find a gem of an idea.
Good luck everybody!
