You are worth it for real!
Sometimes you just need to think bigger and reach for a dream. I think that is why I decided that working for myself as an artist would be a good idea. Lol!
I left my ‘regular’ job that I have had for 23 years last January 2019. It has been a time of growing and learning. I am so fortunate to have my amazing husband and creative partner supporting this journey.
I’m discovering that 1. I can be productive and get things done. 2. I can be the worlds biggest procrastinator if I don’t make actual written lists of things that need to be done. 3. I’m rubbish at writing my lists consistently. 4. I need to limit my time online- it is a time sink that I really, really need to avoid. 5. I can find so many other things that ‘need to be done’ in my regular life that my website and YouTube channel sometimes feel like afterthoughts.
Do you ever feel like that? The things you really want to get done, to accomplish, sit there looking at you patiently as you try to get everything perfect to start on them? I have decided to pick one thing a day on my Worklist and get it done first thing during my workday. That way if I get pulled off track I know something actually got accomplished! I find if I can get one thing done I am more motivated to get the next thing and then my self-confidence starts going up and up. More things get done and my world feels bigger and like I can accomplish even bigger things!
What does that have to do with Reaching for your dreams? For me, it is exactly how my dreams are coming true! My world is growing, my lists keep evolving the list is always there but the things on it change every day! What will I be doing tomorrow is always changing and I love that.
So I got this blog post written- that is one thing off my list.
