A couple of days ago I posted my first vlog on the site. The vlog represents yet another turning point.
I spent the last week at SXSW in Austin – honestly it was amazing, overwhelming and inspiring. And most importantly it made me realize that I need to stop holding back. I hold back because I question if I am making the right decision(s). I have had my share of successes and failures. And like many I focus on the failures and second guess myself continuously – its exhausting. So I went for a walk, pondered and thought I would share (after you watch the video be sure to come back and finish reading the blog)…Second Guess No More!
I am giving myself a break on a few fronts. I am quieting the annoying second guessing voice and I am going to listen to the powerful voices from SXSW that inspired what is burning inside me. The biggest learning from SouthBy was to just go for it, to try, to start and to evolve and iterate. So I am doing it!
I am not going to do anything reckless. I love the agency life, I love my work, I love teaching,…I love what I am doing but I also have this burning passion to bring DIY Princess to life and to write Adversperience 2.0.
So I am doing it! I will be blogging and vlogging and ignoring the naysayers.
Why the change of heart – because at SXSW I realized why not? What am I waiting for?
Oh ya and I got a tattoo…a permanent reminder of what matters, my goals and that hope and beauty spring eternal – but this is all for the next blog/vlog!
