Welcome to this week’s edition of "Just a few things," a weekly blog dedicated to sharing a few things I've been doing, thinking, reading or learning throughout the week. Many of these things are inspired by my interactions with you via email or social media, so feel free to drop a comment and share a few things yourself! Let’s get to it.
What's a quote that made me think this week?
I love quotes, but you probably already knew that, and it seems I'm finding them everywhere these days. I also love to read... and a few months back I read All the Light We Cannot See, which is where we can attribute this quote. Here it is:
“Time is a slippery thing: lose hold of it once, and its string might sail out of your hands forever.”
I've been oddly aware of time lately. Not time in the sense of hours in minutes, but time in the sense of weeks, months and years. It feels like I've lost hold of it and life is passing by in a blur. It's bugging me, to be honest. I look back and see the day I started Combat Flags, for instance, but the time between that moment and now is no longer clear. Figuring this one out and hoping to get a grasp on things :) Anyhow, that's the quote. Apologies for the morose turn on that one!
What am I trying to improve upon?
Life... is that a good answer? But seriously, time management and keeping/maintaining a positive attitude. Similar to the quote (perhaps this is why it's resonating with me), I find that when time get's away from me I lose my sense of positivity. Normal I suppose, right?
Anything new going on with Combat Flags?
Always! Right now I'm working on tearing down a load of uniforms while also figuring out what to do with social media. Social is an ever changing game with Facebook running the show and they like to keep business pages on their toes. Fun, but frustrating at the same time. Not really fun, but I'm fairly certain we're supposed to say that, right?
But really, I've got some exciting things in the works for Combat Flags right now. From commissioning an artist I greatly admire to create a host of new logos and artwork to a shift in the Original Combat Flags... lots of good things.
Question from Instagram this week: Why don't you have Navy service flags, but you have all of the others?
Remember my earlier commentary on time? I have them here (right next to me as I type this, actually), but I haven't had the time to get photos for the website. I'll make sure that happens this weekend because you are not the only person who has asked about Navy flags :)
Now tell me something that happened, was memorable, that you learned, whatever you want, from your week!
This is my favorite part :) Leave a comment with something about your week.
I’ve also got lots of cool stuff up in the store. If you haven’t checked it out in a while, swing by and check out some freedom!
