On days were I make it in bed, but still feel accomplished means I’m winning!
I cannot end the day without sending a huge THANK YOU and shout out to my friends and family that are constantly sending me leads and referrals for graphic design opportunities. Besides it showing that my passion is important to them, I am so grateful that they think of my work and skills enough to potentially share with the world.
I was watching (more like listening) to Oprah’s Master Class on O dot com as she interviewed India.Arie and this quote not only stuck with me, it got me through the day: “Your real job in the world is to be you.” On days or weeks or months and for some years where you feel like you want to quit or feel like being you isn’t enough, remember that it is! Chances are there are a list of people that are admiring you and thinking about what you mean to them.
Pull positive energy from people that not only are successful, but comfortable with sharing the struggles of how they got there. Most of them will say that they wanted to quit at some point or another. Don’t give up! <—that was for me too.
