I’ll interrupt the normal, everyday pretty inspirations with some things that have been on my mind. (I guess it’s good to keep things real every now and then, right?) When I started this blog, I knew I also wanted to start a career in the design world. I wasn’t exactly sure how I was going to go about it, I just knew that this creative, fun and ever- changing path was for me. I love what I have been able to do so far- working with clients and drawing up rooms plans has been the best! I wouldn’t change a thing with that. In the back of my mind, I always knew that I also wanted to take things a step further and expand my business. When contemplating what’s best for you when making career decisions…….. do you ever feel totally lost and confused?
That is where I have been lately.
I am a pretty optimistic person and deep down, I know it will all work out. Sometimes, you just need to vent, right? I was about to take this business down another path, thinking I would be expanding in a beneficial way. But then, I took a step back and thought- Is this really what I want to do? Would I even like this if it became successful? Is this the path I want to take? The more I thought about it, I realized it wasn’t for me. So many other people became successful this way, but it doesn’t mean it’s my dream… it’s theirs.
So… it’s back to the drawing board! And that’s not a bad thing, because things don’t have to happen overnight. Sometimes, when you step back and reflect on what’s really for you, the outcome is that much better. I truly believe that when you are doing something you absolutely love, it shows. I do have to say, that this blog and ‘meeting’ all of the inspiring entrepreneurs and strong people has helped to lead me in this direction!
I’m really getting closer to how I would like this business to grow and I’m extremely excited about the future! I’m still stressing about timing, etc., but there is a silver lining! In the coming months, I will go into further detail about my choices, how I’m making it all work and the logistics of it all. For now, I will leave you with this sweet quote my husband sent me:
- Aspiring to a small business that does what it does very well is a noble pursuit.
- Narenda Rocherolle
- I thought that was so sweet to send that out of the blue! And now I am done with my rambling for the day!
