The Trade-Off

If I am succeeding at one, I am inevitably failing at the other. That is the trade-off.
— Shonda Rhimes (Dartmouth Commencement speech)

“We can have it all right now” has become an antiquated idea. It’s impossible to have the large house, the fantasy car (not a minivan), the dream relationship, a successful career, and well-behaved children at the SAME TIME! You’re lucky enough to have all of these things in the same day!

I apologize for this un-All Things Inspiration truth.

One of the hardest truths to swallow is that we have not published blog posts on a weekly basis. In fact, it has been over a month and a half since our last post…YIKES!

The lack of inspiration shared with you is not due to a hot summer vacation or months of twiddling our thumbs. In fact, it has been quite the opposite. In the last few months, we have hosted several events including an arts/literacy social and writing workshop. Behind the scenes, we were preparing to launch our fall apparel (you can check out our Freelancer Fashion here) and expanding the brand of VK Press beyond the Midwest.

The trade-off?

You were going through your weeks uninspired and that is unacceptable. In a world where all we hear is fake news and see nonsense at every corner, VK Press has aspired to share light and infuse hope. With that, we are excited to announce that we have several posts scheduled from new and returning blog contributors for the coming weeks!

Thank you for your continued support of VK Press and loyalty to All Things Inspiration!
