  • 🙋 Raise your hand if you've ever suffered from depression. The stigma attached to this condition is ridiculous. You cannot control it. There's nothing wrong with you. I'm not ashamed - I didn't ask for it. I've learned how to manage it over the years and I’m thankful to have a Husband that knows exactly how to handle me when I’m “in a funk” as we call it around here.

I think we can read article after article about how so many people have depression, but until we have actual conversations about it there will always be a subconscious “they’re gonna judge me” feeling. 
Do you really care if someone shallow enough to judge you for a condition you cannot control judges you? I don’t. Screw ‘em. 
The trouble is, when you’re in the thick of it, you don’t feel like talking to anyone. You DEFINITELY don’t feel like talking about depression. It feels so personal, and uncomfortable. 
Specifically to creative types: we are deeply empathetic people who feel things on a level that can be debilitating. Stress is a huge trigger for me. Perfectionism. Exhaustion. I love my work, I have to force myself to take a break, or I’ll sink into a depressive episode.

A few tips for any of my friends who might be in the thick of it right now.. • Sit outside in the sun if only for a few minutes a day. Vitamin D always makes me feel better. • Yoga. Do couch yoga if you don’t feel like getting up. Something about stretching seems to help. • Stay away from alcohol, it will make it one hundred times worse.

And pray. Even when you’re so mad you’re having to deal with this you can’t see straight. Especially then. Even when you think nothing works, nothing helps, and you’ll always feel like this. You won’t. Pray. Remember you’re talking to the Creator of the Universe and treat that conversation accordingly. 
Some of the most crazy talented, hilarious, intelligent people I know suffer from depression. 
It goes without saying I’m always here if you need to talk. My close friends and family know I’ve dealt with and overcome this many times over the years, and I consider it a blessing to be able to help others in any way possible, even if only to sit next to them while they “hate everythi

  • ⭐️ Having been in the web design industry for 13 years, I’ve heard “that’s just way over my head” or “I’m not smart enough for all this tech stuff” and lots of “I don’t think I can do this” - I’ve also been fortunate enough to witness a lot of those people turn around and say “Look what I did! I surprised myself!” .

That feeling of realizing you are smart enough, and that more than anything, you believed in yourself enough to at least give it a shot and persevere through whatever hurdles you encountered is so rewarding! .

The time you invest in learning how to work your website, will never be wasted. The more you learn, the easier it gets. The more times you screw up, the better you’ll be. .

I taught myself web design by accident 13 years ago, and when people ask how I learned, I always say Trial and Error is the very best teacher. You have to break a few things, and put them back together to figure out how they work sometimes. .

I watched many a sunrise sitting at my desk in our bedroom in Colorado and loved every minute of discovering that I AM ENOUGH, I’m smart enough to do hard things. I’m smart enough to do anything I set my mind to. That those weren’t just words I’d heard, and read for years. There’s LIFE in those words. .

I tell my daughters all the time “if you tell yourself you can, you can. If you tell yourself you can’t, you can’t.” .

YOU CAN. YOU ARE ENOUGH.

  • 🌞⭐️💖🎉✨🦄🦖🧜🏼‍♀️
I’ve put up a “BRB” page at PrettyDarnCute.com while I get the new design installed and active. There are only so many things you can accomplish on a staging site before you really have to take it live and polish things up. .
I thought it was beyond appropriate that my kids suggested we decorate my office today because “that will make it more fun to work a lot tonight, Mama!” - since the creative inspiration behind the new site design and branding was embracing my inner child, which just so happens to be adult me as well. I’m just a big kid who still colors Lisa Frank coloring books with Mr. Sketch Markers and doodles her name in Gelly Roll pens. .
More soon, can’t wait to share!

Fun Fact - Each color in the new Pretty Darn Cute logo is taken from a theme I’ve created over the past 13 years!
