That look, with fingers crossed, is how I feel most of the time.
“Living the Dream” of working for myself makes it sound like all rainbows and gumdrops but its actually a more daunting endeavor than it might seem. Every choice you make, and working for yourself you can make these decisions with sometimes reckless speed, affects your future directly.
I don’t regret this decision for an instant.
My family is still in the process of climbing out of our worst moment when we lost our home about 6 years ago. Its not something I talk about, I feel like its my biggest failure, but while its one of those times that remembering can still bring me to tears it is ultimately what allowed me to start down this road. Some Odd Girl is in the midst of growing pains and lots of decisions but I know if done right could take us back to stability.
Its July and I am getting ready for big plans (fingers crossed) to come to fruition in the fall and making plans for CHA in January 2015. I’m going to be sharing a lot of these behind the scenes with you as we make this transition, I feel like its time to share the things that make me uncomfortable, the personal growth from it is undeniable.
I’m not looking to be a craft-lebrity or something like that, I am a person with a passion who is finally coming to terms with who she is and am trying to be proud of it… something I’ve never been able to do.
Now you’ll have to excuse me as this first step makes me want to run back to my drawing pad. Its always been there for me.
