The process

I have had the above nugget of wisdom taped to my door since getting my little business offspring into the wild, it was something that illustrator Becky Simpson said in this interview with The Great Discontent (yes I know, I seem to find all of my lady heroes via these interviews).

Building this new thing has become my joy and obsession, but I am running on 51% thrills and 49% terror all day every day.  I don't think this is a bad thing - I was telling a friend the other day about this quote "if your dreams don't scare you, they're not big enough"; at the time of first reading it, it made me feel a little guilty about where I was, my comfy and only-just-challenging-enough job, but I can read it now and confirm that yes, for the terror I presently feel I am definitely living out my dreams right now.

Anyway, I just wanted to check in and say hi *hiiiii!*  Onwards with the process.
