Today was all about getting things done.
Tying up loose ends. Making lists. Organizing and reorganizing. Taking a break for Pinterest. Making goals for the future. Running a few errands. Packing and shipping orders. Staying in the A/C as much as possible. Feeling excited that Fall is just a few weeks away.
Wondering what the heck I am doing with my life.
You know, the usual.
Things are going really well around here, but somehow I am constantly plagued with self-doubt. It seems like the bigger the opportunities, the louder the voice in my head telling me I can’t do it. Do you guys experience this too? I realize this comes with the territory of doing things 100% on my own, but surprisingly, that perspective isn’t exactly reassuring. Without the safety net of an established company or a talented team of employees, it’s all up to me to make things work. And truth be told, that scares me a little bit! (Insert mental dialogue: “what do I know about anything?!” here.)
But I am determined to push through this quarter-life crisis and try new things, even if the voice in my head is telling me to turn back as fast as I can. I mean, where else am I going to find a job that will let me roll in after 11am in my PJ’s and no makeup and allow for plenty of breaks for important endeavors such as pinning or ‘gramming? That’s a tough act to follow, my friends. A tough act.
So it’s back to work (in my PJ’s), I go!
