    Life & letters, C — for courage

    C is for COURAGE

    Sometimes the things that hold us back aren’t our inexperience, but our own fear to reach where we need to. Have you ever met someone you worshipped and kicked yourself the rest of the day because you never said anything to them? I’ve been there!

    About a year ago, Mark Weaver, an amazing graphic designer announced on twitter that he had been hired at The Daily and was promptly moving to New York City from Atlanta. My boyfriend, Tim, and I were heartbroken, as we love Mark’s work and had been hoping that we’d run into him somewhere and be able to confess our love for his work. But with him moving, we knew we had lost our chance. Mark had also posted about a yard sale, so you better believe we showed up.

    That morning on the way to Mark’s house we were both nervous and couldn’t decide on what to say or how to say it to Mark. We wanted so badly to talk to him about his techniques, his new job, his instagram pictures and be all creepy, but we were afraid we’d come across as just that – creepy. So we arrived, walked around quietly in awe for what seemed like forever, purchased a typewriter and left. We didn’t say much at all and I STILL think about it.

    For the most part though, we have plenty of chances to reach out to the people that inspire us and acquire the resources we need to grow. Take some risks and email someone you’ve been longing to talk to, or get a consultation on your portfolio. You’ll never know how the story ends if you don’t take a leap.
