If you were to ask me a year ago where I saw myself today, I would tell you that I would blogging consistently, I would have worked on X amount of exciting projects, I would feel more established as an artist/designer/handletterer, and I would *finally* have my online shop up and running. But boy, was I wrong. Almost none of those things have been accomplished. And guess what? I’m totally okay with it. I absolutely needed these past 8 months to refresh my mentality, refocus on what’s important, and to spend time creating regardless of results.
I plan on writing an in-depth post about this unplanned break, which I am calling The Hustle Hiatus. But for now, I wanted to share a little illustration I created in honor of my favorite season! I know it’s a little late to be saying ‘Welcome Back’ but if I’ve learned anything during this hiatus, it’s to let go of results and perfection and to do what you can with the time and talents you have at the present moment.
Anyways. Fall, you’re lovely, stick around as long as you’d like. And, hey, if you’re still here and reading: Hi! I’ve missed you.
