this year has passed at warp speed.
i am in awe of the courage that i have found in myself.
one year ago, i left the hospitality industry after a decade of service. it was the best move i ever made. i miss the antics, i don’t miss the grind.
leaving the hustle & flow was not an easy choice.
it changed me.
it has made me stronger than ever.
: i celebrate the first times of 2011 :
first job not working with food & drinks
first time i taught my craft to another
first time as a legit festival vendor
first time i’ve shared my creativity on a local level
first time i’ve even considered being a mother
first time i used a power drill
first time i actually took notes while sewing
first time i’ve looked at the future without anxiety
all of these have taught me the value of preparation, intention, and patience.
not too shabby.
