*Outfit post coming soon!
To be honest with you all, it’s been a rough two years. A lot has happened. To get you up to speed, I just started a new job this week. That is sort of the reasons why the blog posts have slowed down. I’m trying to fit a dedicated time to blog during the week so that I will at least have a post once a week. But I’m always here and here.
I haven’t been working a full-time position in two years and now I’m getting back in the flow of things. Within these two years, I created my business, blogged full-time, interned, took on odd part-time jobs and more. For a person who is somewhat of a perfectionist and goal-oriented, this was very VERY hard for me. The inconsistency. Not accomplishing my own tasks. Not moving on my own watch. Having my husband take care of us. And not to mention the funny looks and conversations with people asking me if I’ve found a job yet. With all of that, there have been very depressing days and days where I just wanted to gave up.
My dreams have always been to be creative. And having a full-time job right now was one of them to get the jumpstart to where I want to be. It amazes me how your bad times are truly preparing you for greater. My last full-time job, I was developing code and I knew I wouldn’t have wanted to do that forever. I started this little ole blog and my passion grew for web, writing, and technology in a different light. So although I wasn’t working full-time when I moved to Texas, I used my time wisely. I received my certification in Web Design and Web Development which led to the opening of my business. I studied photography. I sharpened my writing skills which in turn made my blog better. I gained internships that helped me learn more about social media. Now, I’m a Web Content Manager for a not-for-profit organization with full creative control. But God.
There is a lot more to this story, but I wanted to share a piece of the history from these past few years that have made me into the person I am today. I always say this, and I’ll leave you with this thought. Knowing yourself is the ultimate path to getting to your best destination. Remember to always be brilliant!
