Allow Yourself to be a Beginner.
Sometimes I have to remind myself that I have only been freelancing full-tim for 2 months. Only 2 months! I often set unrealistic expectations for myself - that I am going to achieve this or that in a very short period of time. I like this quote because it reminds me that it is OK to be a beginner. I am going to make mistakes (I have already made quite a few) but that is OK because that is the only way I am going to learn. This week I have been feeling a bit uninspired and just outright exhausted. It has been hard to motivate myself to write/create posts, when usually it flows so naturally. But it is OK - I am still new to this whole blogging thing - and some weeks are going to be better than others! While of course it is important to have ambition, sometimes I feel like I put too much pressure on myself to be constantly successful and creative.
This week is going to be a bit slow on the blog - but stay tuned - there is a lot at play behind the scenes especially as we lead into October.
