All Change

Hello Loves,

Its all change at the Penthouse this week- well my corner of it at least.

Have been feeling a bit stagnant of late so I decided to rearrange my bedroom. I often find that moving stuff about and changing routines helps bump start things.  I don't know how long the changes will last but for the moment I am pleased with the result. Plus it has the added bonus of allowing me and the boy to get out of bed without having to climb over each other trying not to squash sleeping feets!

In the spirit of change, and following the advice of the old proverb 'do one thing everyday that scares you' I went to an open casting the other day. I was actually surprised at how nervous it made me. In the end all I had to do was look a bit sulky in front of some metal sheeting for ten minuets or so. I couldn't help feeling embarrassed, there is something inherently arrogant in turning up obviously thinking that you are beautiful or interesting enough for people to want to photograph you. Goodness knows what, if anything will come of it, but I'm glad I did it for the experience if nothing else. It made me realise that unless you put yourself forward things are unlikely to happen or change.  I think this applies to all areas of life.

I recently read a fabulous post about finding something interesting in the mundane. Alongside challenging myself, as often as I can remember to do so, I intend to do just that!

  1. Aw you're too kind. :) That's really inspiring though (the part about you going to the open casting, although I'm glad you rearranged your bedroom too! (; ) I want to start putting myself forward in more avenues as well. I always get the same hangups- "I'm not good enough, who am I to think I have the experience/talents/etc", but really it's always worth it to put yourself out there. At the very least you get the learning experience. xo


Leave me a little bit of love.
