If you read my 2015 recap, you probably saw that I started with the first baby steps towards my ultimate dream.
I received tons of encouragement from friends and family when I first started my shop. And for that I’m forever grateful. My poor husband had to listen to me doubting myself over and over.
He has the patient of a saint, I tell you.
And he is my #1 fan. He pushed me when I came up with excuses, encouraged me when I was feeling down, and reminded me that there’s more than numbers to measure your success.
He held my hand and guided me to the edge. I dipped my feet into the water, but didn’t go for the swim.
2016 is the year to take that leap. The year to be confident, to be self-loving, to be an adventurer and hard-worker.
With that in mind I came up with my word for 2016.
I’m tired of not applying myself for fear of failure. For fear of criticism, feedback, or worse: for fear of nothing at all.
But this time is different. This time I’m going to be fearless. Chase my dreams with passion, love and grace and put all of myself in there. I’d rather know I did all I can, than to know I did half of what I could. I owe it to myself, and I owe it to you guys too.
Here’s to a fearless 2016! And to the constant reminder of my word in my studio. No going back now.
