I had an absolute blast attending The Fashion Group Intentional’s holiday party for 2015. Houston fashion designer Steve Guthrie was a gracious and welcoming host. I feel compelled to write my ramblings down after such a wonderful gathering. I had the unique experience of interacting with designers, mixed media artists, illustrators, photographers, teachers, fashion enthusiast and more, all under one roof! With so many creative people that hold different positions with multiple capacities in one space, there were a few reoccurring themes of the night. One being that we were all very happy to be surrounded with like minded individuals. We each were able to have so many meaningful productive conversations, simply because we were all in the same head space. We all wanted to be there, we all wanted to connect, we all wanted to help one another in some way. We happily shared our obsessions, passions, goals, strategies,life lessons and even things we just find hilarious.
I’ve said all that, to say this: Surround yourself with people you want to be like. If there is something you want to do or a goal you want to attain, seek to connect with people who have already done it or that are in pursuit. Not only can you bring new perspectives to the table, but It will help everyone involved to remain INSPIRED! The feeling and thought of inspiration is a critical first step to setting goals for yourself. You’re less likely to set and update your goals if you don’t have good sources of inspiration.
