Dear readers, this post comes to you today with total and complete transparency. It's the honest hour. (BTW that hour is definitely on the wrong side of midnight). But the truth is, this #lettersbylindsay nearly didn't happen tonight.
I had a really cool quote about failure that I had started lettering, and ironically, it totally failed.
When midnight hit and I had no letters and no blog post written, the melt down may or may not have begun. I'm in no way proud of it, but what happened happened.
Instead of closing my computer for the night and pouring another glass of wine, I decided to wait for the storm to pass. I let myself sulk for a few minutes. I let myself complain to Kristin. And then, I decided I just had to get shit done.
I've learned a lot listening to Sophia Amoruso's #GIRLBOSS this week, but this particular quote rung a little too true tonight. When you're running a business, sometimes plans A, B and even C will leave you hanging. But what makes a #GIRLBOSS is that when this happens we abandon the plans altogether, put our heads down and just do the work.
So dear friends, I hope you think of this weird and rambly post next time your plans fall through. Remember that it's okay to let yourself be upset about it all for just a minute. But after you've taken that minute, drop it like it's hot. Move on like the boss you are, because we bosses know the truth about how the world works. Like Sophia told us, we know that fortune favors the bold who get shit done.
