Everything about this weekend was wonderful. I made a Vine (@chasprgirl), bought some sweet new sunglasses while partying at Cartel Supply Company, spent time with some super inspiring people and helped my friend Dave shoot a lookbook for Ode clothing’s “Souf Cak” collection.
If you don’t already know, the term “out here” refers to a state of being, not an actual place (Dave had to break it down for me). It’s about passion, confidence and doing what you love. We’re talented artists who support each other. That means we go to each others’ shows and wear each others’ clothing lines. We eat at each others’ restaurants, jam to each others’ music, share constructive feedback and encourage each others’ ideas. We’re all out here together, doin’ our thangs just trying to leave our mark on the world.
Who are we? We are the next generation of innovators, you should probably get to know us.
If someone told you “Hey, everything you want, anything you need, you can have it all,” would you believe them? I’ve started thinking along those lines. What do I really want and why? If I could have it all, what would I do with it?
One of my massage therapists introduced me to the “five love languages,” which I discovered is also a book by Gary Chapman. While Chapman’s book seems to be directed toward mates, I think these languages can be applied to any loving relationship. Here are five ways Chapman says love can be expressed and received:
Words of affirmation
Acts of service
I’m sure others forms of loving expression exist, but I agree most will fall into one of these categories. I took a quiz and found out my primary love languages are quality time, acts of service and words of affirmation. How do you show love to your clients? What’s the best way for clients to show their love for you? Do you think “love” is an appropriate term to describe professional, work relationships?
I’d LOVE to hear from you :) If you have a few minutes, take the quiz and comment below with your results!
