Pinch me, is this for real?

Miss me? I was off a few days having “pinch me, is this for real?” moments at Alt Summit NYC. There were several times during the event that I geeked-out over the fact that I was hearing Martha Stewart speak just ten feet away from me; that I was rubbing shoulders with Kevin Sharkey on the roof of the Martha Stewart headquarters, and peaking into the offices of Darcy Miller to snag a view of her floor to ceiling inspiration boards — not to mention meeting so many of my favorite blogger friends in real life!

By far though, the highlight for me was hearing Tina Roth Eisenberg of Swiss Miss talk about the importance of side projects (ahem, like this little ol’ blog here) and her steps towards living a creative life (Check out Sarah’s great recap of these steps). Her speech and many others throughout the day had a common theme — take the risk to do what you love, and things will work out — advice I need to take to heart!

    Great post. Loved Sarah’s post as well – something I have been thinking about a lot over the last few months. Great to know I am not alone on this quest to find ways to incorporate more creative elements into my life in an effort to get that much closer to my goals and dream of pursuing a career in field I am truly passionate about. Thank you for this dose of inspiration after the long weekend!
