We have a unique opportunity at Society6 to tell stories in a variety of ways, whether through the lens of a new freelancer, a DIY expert or an artist who is finally living out their dreams.

So this year, we’ve decided to bring all of these perspectives together each month under one central theme. These monthly themes will allow us to explore a range of topics from almost any view point, all the while harkening back to the central core of what we’ve chosen to explore that particular month.

This month, we’re talking about what it means to overcome.

You’ve probably seen the quote “Be kind; Everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.” and chances are, there’s deep truth in that.  Life is unpredictable and often unfair and seems to serve up unlimited obstacles hell bent on taking us off our true course. However, as cliché as it might be, it’s good to remember that a diamond is only made under pressure and often these roadblocks and burdens are the very spark that jumpstarts an exciting new life path, a creative masterpiece or a leap forward in personal growth. This month, we’ll be focusing on stories of how people wrestled with a challenge and came out with renewed strength in everything from mental health struggles to strange spaces to creative doubts.

Get inspired by looking through our collection of art inspired by the commitment to overcoming obstacles.
