Stream of Consciousness Sunday: I finally gave myself permission

I have been working for a few months on developing a business that I find exciting, fulfilling, and rewarding. I’ve worked for myself for the last 5 years and have been constantly searching for something more, something else.

Just a few weeks ago I was depressed with what I was doing work wise – I love marketing, I really do but it was lacking something. I’ve never been one to conform to rules or traditions so I decided it was time I developed something that was MINE, all mine.

So, I’m still doing marketing but I’m doing it visually. I can’t use photoshop or any design programmes but years ago I went to art school – I never felt I was good enough to be an artist so I quit and studied History of Modern Art, then realised I didn’t want to be a critic so I went and did a Masters in Marketing. The corporate world didn’t work out (remember, I said I suck at conforming?)

Anyway, finally, I have given myself permission to bring together the elements that make me who I am today.

I’m excited, super excited actually. It’s been a giant leap for me, but giving myself the permission to go out there and DO has unleashed a part of me that I can’t wait to rediscover!

This is what I’m talking about …

Is there something you are longing to do but won’t allow yourself to do it? 

What’s holding you back?

    YES! there are things I am holding myself back from – no doubt. Not sure I am ready to go there, even in writing (how sad!) let alone in real life… (sadder). Hahahah!

    Thanks for the prompt to re-examine, though, and good luck with your clearly awesome new business!
