Music saved me from a panic attack tonight.
Playing this song was like the warm arms of a friend wrapping themselves around me… except I let the music wrap itself around me.
It’s fair to say that I have been busier than I ever thought possible in my wildest dreams this Christmas shopping season. I had no idea what to expect, I set myself no goals and just kind of threw myself at it… sink or swim. I’m still not so sure which it’s gonna be yet ;)
Success isn’t always glitz and glamour, it can be dark and overwhelming and I think it’s OK to admit that. It’s not that I complain or I don’t want to succeed, I just get a little scared and a little tired and a little frustrated, but I constantly surprise myself at how hard I am capable and willing to work to achieve my dreams. I guess when you know what you want, you really know.
Of course, I haven’t gotten here completely on my own and learning to ask for help is a completely different beast that I’m yet to conquer. I am so, so grateful to my friends and family for their understanding natures and encouragement. I am eternally grateful to my boyfriend who scoffs at me when I say I’m giving up. Who takes some of my workload when I’m overwhelmed, but more than that cooks for me, wakes me with a cup of tea and squeezes me tight when I need it. He even tries to calm me when I’m stamping my feet because I can’t squeeze more ink out of the printer than there actually is ;)
He don’t mind the way I am.
Above all… thank you to my customers. My new friends. Thank you for spending your hard earned money on these pieces of my heart, you really are helping me achieve my dreams and I have a lil’ head on my shoulders that is swimming with ideas and goals and more dreams to come true.
