Love What You Do

April 1st marks one year that I gave notice to my corporate type job and April 15th signifies my last day at it.  I worked this job for 6 years and while I am very grateful for many aspects of it, I have not been happier since leaving it.

May marks 2 years of owning my own business and this is what I left my last job for; I took one of those leaps of faith we often hear of others doing.  I left the security of a set amount of hours to in turn receive a set amount of pay, vacation and sick time, very nice benefits, and while I understand the value in those components of adulthood, I haven't missed it once.
I wake up every day happy and eager to begin tasks and with a fiery passion for the work I put my name on.  My business is growing and consistent and I feel like the decade worth of work I put in throughout my whole 20s led me to this point.  It's like it was all meant to get here.

There are scary moments and trying times yes, yet I honest to God have not regretted my choice to become a full time entrepreneur once.  Even when brief glimpses of doubt appear, I quickly snap into the moment and recognize how grateful I am.  It is beyond refreshing to wake up excited to start the day's work.

I hope to keep growing both as a person and as a business.  I hope I never stop learning and thriving for my next goal.  I've said since providing my resignation to my last job with one hand raised above the other: "I'm scared to this level but I'm enthusiastic to this level and as long as enthusiasm is above fear on the barometer I'm good."  I still stand by this.

A man is not very tired. He is exhausted

I know. This is days after the initial blow of learning that this wonderful human being's life ended. What in the world. Talk about a cherished existence. The man my parents still rave about because of his stand up comedy, the man who forever changed the way I say "Hellloooooo" in an older British woman's voice, this great giant. How sad. I feel for the fact that Robin hit a level from which he could not rise. Depression, anxiety, stress are awful beasts.

I do not believe in the mentality, that someone who takes their life is selfish. Sure, it's not the kindest thing to leave behind for loved ones to cope with, but if something has it's grasp on a person, well, choices are made. It is devastating that there is still so much stigma for diseases like depression and anxiety. What?! Get the hell out of here with that mess. I would not wish it upon the biggest naysayer even to prove a point. So, to that, I say screw the assholes saying derogatory …

My dear, If at first you don't succeed, throw on another accessory & try, try again

Off to try, try again!


Til we meet again,

Today is a good day, my friends. Today means at the 6 o'clock hour I shall enter a four day weekend. Full of what, you ask? So far on the agenda is:

-trying out a very new and deliciously enticing restaurant known as Cooper's Hawk and Winery;
-finishing the rest of season 5 and all of season 6 for Sons of Anarchy-which is phenom BTW;
-and enjoying the beautiful weather we are projected to experience, with extra SPF of course.

I like to call this agenda a little something known as living the American dream indeed.

Oh and I'll be toting around my newly obtained Kate Spades. Surprise 75% off sale, what? I CANNOT wait for the tote! I'll give you a hint until I can show the new ol'gal off #baconeggandcheeseplease :):)

Any how, I have to go shopping now ( Love a good Pretty Woman reference) get to finishing my day so the fun can begin. Hope everyone has a safe, fun, relaxing good time. Or go wild and have to retrace events to determine how good it really was. Ju…
