There are a lot of happy things happening over here. Work has kept me busy buzzing around my hive and thinking, planning, designing, ordering, packing like a crazy person. When I decided to quit Studio Calico I had a lot of ideas on what my next steps would be and it feels good to finally start seeing some of those ideas come together. There's a lot in store that I've put together on my own that I'll be sharing soon. I hope you'll stay tuned.
I've also always been the type of person who gets scared and anxious to make things happen. Do you know what I mean? The idea of a big dream actually coming true can overwhelm me, makes me panic, and think "ahhh no eeek too much this is crazy" and I want to back away slowly until I can safely turn around and run like Usain Bolt the other way to where I'm safe and comfortable. I do it in work, I do it in relationships, I do it all those heart thumping areas of life. It's a challenge for me to take steps forward. But I'm learning as I do this that 1) I can do it and 2) things can be pretty good when I do. Baby steps, my friends. Baby steps to finding a new place of comfort in making things happen.
My friend Jamaica tweeted this quote the other day and it's a little mantra I've adapted lately. So true, so true.
