There's something about that feeling you get when things that you once only dreamt about actually start to become more than a floating idea in your mind. When they actually start to become real! It's one of the most powerful, energizing, and scary feelings ever. When you think back to a year ago, a month ago, or even a week ago and can recognize and appreciate that you've come along way, it motivates you to keep pushing forward!
I am pushing.
However, I can get frustrated that I'm not exactly where I want to be yet.
"I don't have the lenses I want." "My computer's too slow." "I don't have enough clients." "I don't have enough time." "I don't have enough space."
"I'm not good enough."
I really try not to be consumed by that type of thinking. But, I'm human. It happens.
Finding the time to pause, reflect and appreciate where you are is extremely important. Give yourself credit, pat yourself on the back, and acknowledge the fact that you're not where you were a year, a month, or a week ago. Show yourself some Love!
I'm growing, and my business is growing. I'm currently working on creating a small studio in my home, and I'm really excited. But also kind of scared. Not quite sure why -- once I figure it out, I'll blog about it lol -- but there's fear there. And butterflies. And a hint of anxiety. Perhaps it's because I'm not accustomed to dreams coming true. I do know, though, that the fear won't stop or even slow me down; the excitement outweighs it. I've come so far since last year, I've improved in this past month, and I've learned new things this week. So why stop now?? :)
