Commitment. It's a tricky thing for most people. Be it a relationship, a diet or exercise plan, or in my case, blogging. It's not that I have aspirations to be be a "blogger" but I have always found writing as a nice, creative outlet. So, I would think something like blogging would come naturally - however, that has not always been the case for me. It doesn't seem to be about the writing, but more about the time. Making time for it. As with anything you're trying to stick to, carving out that time in your day is what can be the hardest part. Being busy is a good problem to have, especially when you are trying to build a business. However, it's also just as important to make time for your goals. My goal for the rest of the year is to be a more active writer. I want to use this space as a way to share updates on my journey as a woman trying to balance it all - being a wife, mother, and a kick-ass graphic designer.
It's been just over a year since I left the corporate world and go out on my own as a designer. I certainly do not have it all figured out, and I am learning all the time about what I should and shouldn't do, and what hope to accomplish year after year. My client base and workload has been steady - with some weeks or months busier than others! But I am committing to myself to make writing a priority for me! Do what you love, right?
Hope you enjoy what's to come!
