Has it been over a week already? Can someone please tell me where September went, or summer in general for that matter. This past week has been a blur of Scrabble boxes, wedding, family, errands, work, cleaning, baking and… house dreaming. Hubby is none to happy right now with the state of his kitchen (yes, the kitchen is HIS domain) due to my baking/making a cake for a friend’s baby shower. We’ll call it a creativity explosion in the form of sugar… I guess I do this to myself though. When I make a cake, it’s no ordinary cake. It’s a yummy, fondant-covered art project ;o). I vow to you that Monday at the latest, I will post pictures of the Scrabble box as well as the finished cake.
As for my ‘quest’, I have been thinking a lot about the journey. At my yoga class earlier this week, we were reminded by the teacher: “It’s not about the destination, it’s about the journey.” Cliche, I know, but always a good thing to keep in mind. I don’t know about you, but I truly believe that things happen when they are supposed to, how they are supposed to (also cliche, I know, but deal with it). Since I’ve decided not to be content with the status quo, I feel like I’ve been presented with more growth opportunities than ever. Nothing major, but the little things add up. For example: last year when I was unemployed, I joined an online networking group for Boston women in design (designsalonboston.blogspot.com). They hadn’t had any events since joining, until this coming Tuesday. I’m very much looking forward to the event which is about how twitter can be beneficial to your small business. (“When they are supposed to”) If this event happened 6 months ago, I would probably go for networking but not be too interested in the subject matter. I joined twitter as I was preparing to launch this blog, so NOW the topic is of great interest to me. Little things like this are happening and getting me thinking about everything in a way I haven’t in a while. For the first time in a long time, I’m excited (as opposed to nervous) about what the future holds for me in the world of design.
