Dancing to my own beat

Today is a special day for me. Today is my first official day as a freelancer! I will be working 3 days a week at the same job I have been at for the past 3 years as a textile designer, and 2 days working for ME! I've wanted this for a while now.. Dreamt about this.. wondered how I could ever make it possible, but assumed it never would be. Then.. a random possible opportunity came my way. It was a good opportunity. An opportunity that people who are "career minded" might jump at. And yet.. the more the potential for this opportunity grew, the more I thought about this idea of freelancing. This opportunity would mean more hours, more stress and less time for me to do the things I really want to be doing. It just wasn't putting me in the direction of where I want to be. And then one day I just asked for it. I destroyed the conclusions in my head and just asked for what I wanted. Just like that. The world didn't stop. Nobody laughed at me. Instead I was met with excitement and support and ultimately the go ahead to pursue my own endeavors. I feel so blessed to have this opportunity to get back into my own creative processes.. to explore and create and to hopefully become a part of the amazing craft/DIY community that I am surrounded by. I miss it. It's been a long time and I'm anxious to see what I can come up with. Wish me luck!
