Note to self: Let this be a reminder

Dreamcatcher

Since I can remember I have had dreams of starting my own business. I think it was something I thought I would do down the road, and I thought it would take form in many different shapes and sizes.

Then one day I realized “down the road” was now. So I jumped in.

I have been “working for myself” for over two years now. It’s not a monumental amount of time, but it feels like an accomplishment to me.

I have learned so much about myself through this journey. My resume has grown substantially with hand-on experiences. I acquired new skills, like learning Photoshop and conquering CSS. And I have pushed myself in ways I never thought possible.

I have had moments of intense insecurity, moments of panic, moments of pride, pure overwhelmment, and times of satisfaction.

It’s been a rollercoaster, but it’s been a ride I have really enjoyed.

Reflecting on 2013, I sat down at the beginning of the year and wrote some resolutions for 2014. A few of them even surprised me. Like the one about trying something new in my career…maybe even looking for a new job.

I look forward to seeing what new shapes and sizes this next year holds. And I am excited to build upon all of the things I have learned and accomplished already.
