Transition + Change

Over the past month I've explored what it's like working from home primarily as a creative. The decision to leave my day-job was initially health based. Now that I'm on the mend (YAY!!!) I am able to concentrate on my brand, my business, and why I do all of this. 

Finding yourself isn't as easy as it sounds. It takes a lot of trial and error. It takes being brutally honest with yourself when you're trying to make something work that doesn't. Last week I opened up through "telling your own story". It was so nice to hear that I'm not alone in this search. 

Transition. I've never been a huge fan of this word. I'm one that LOVES change but often HATES the process. It's painful, awkward, and exhausting.

If being chronically ill has taught me ANYTHING it is to take it one day at a time. 

Transition can be exciting, exhilarating, and hopeful. It's movement. If I visualize all the transition that I'm in or need to push through it can be overwhelming. But, like I've talked about before - sometimes it's okay to compare when you're comparing yourself to your beginning.

If you're in transition you've crossed the threshold and change is in progress.

Just remember you're not alone.
