I made a promise to myself last Tuesday that I would do what I need to do, work as hard as I need to work, so that I can do what I love all the time. It’s so strange, but this past week has been one of the best of my life. Knowing that I am doing whatever it takes, that I will not settle for anything below my true potential, is an amazing feeling. I’ve gotten three calligraphy orders since I launched my Etsy shop. I’ve signed a client, and got two inquiries. I’ve sold ads and got published by a major publication. Just ask my husband: every time something good has happened these past five days, I’ve said it.
