"A new moon teaches gradualness and deliberation, and how one gives birth to oneself slowly. Patience with small details makes perfect a large work, like the universe. What nine months of attention does for an embryo forty early mornings alone will do for your gradually growing wholeness."

— Rumi

"So many of us choose our path out of fear disguised as practicality"

Just spent a Saturday afternoon in Tampa Bay designing this e-newsletter template for a client! I have 8 episodes of Being Mary Jane on Netflix, my understanding more advanced programming cousin and 3 bottles of hard cider to thank for this. :)

What they DON’T Tell You About Following Your Dreams

1. It’s slow as hell

The mountain climb is long. Unless you have the advantage of coming from an environment where everyone around you is ‘there’ already, expect to put in time. not days, not weeks, not months…think more like, YEARS. In fact, take a second and make a guess of how long it will take—-now times that by ten.

Rejections, no visible success, no rewarding outcome. 

But when you love it, you’ll keep doing it. Prepare to confuse and start worrying your social circle. 

2. Then, opportunities and leads will shower upon you at once.

When it rains, it pours! Some call it beginner’s luck…

However, looking closely, a lot of these opportunities will look amazing on the surface, only for you to discover later that your backbone, dignity, and morale will be tested. Many of these opportunities will begin to take advantage of you, your skills, talents. Prepare to feel violated in the worst way. This is just preparing your character—humbling.

3. Failed leads and rejections will also happen left and right.

If its not rejections, its life’s circumstances all of a sudden falling apart. Will you get distracted? Or will you continue to work in despite of it? This tests your attitude.

This is what #fear looks like when your experiencing a time period of #uncertainty when your fate rests in the decisions of a British consulate to go to attend graduate school in their country. You’ve done All you can and overcame all the crazy unbelievable obstacles/hurdles that came your way and have reached a point where everything is now beyond your control. So instead of watching Jeopardy with your family, you quietly leave to go lay on your bed and just take time to feel all the feelings that come with this territory. #entrepreneurlife
