Path to Design ~ 12.13.10

Good morning! And we are off to another week. I'm happy to report that this week should be much calmer for me, in part thanks to the good news I have to share with you today!


I just accepted a full-time Interior Design job!! I am officially going to be spending my days around furniture and fabrics, following my dream! I am still in disbelief that this is happening, and I could not be more excited.

This is a big part of the reason I had been so busy the last few weeks. To make a long story short, I had been wearing myself thin working long hours at my day job, commuting for 2 hours-plus each day, then coming home and trying to squeeze blogging, setting up my business, job hunting, and other responsibilities in the few short hours I had each evening. I was always running behind, never achieving all my goals on any one area. A few weeks ago I felt like I reached my breaking point, and decided it was time to put most of my effort into one main area: finding another job. I had no idea it would pay off so quickly!


I still hope to get my business off the ground. I just knew it would take long before I could pay the mortgage from the business alone, so after a long talk with my husband, we figured this will have to continue to be a side thing for the time being. First I needed a day job that I would really enjoy and that would have a shorter commute. Everything else will fall into place from there. This new job will teach me so much, and I feel like it will benefit my future business when the time comes.

So there you have it! Have you had any good news come your way recently? Let's celebrate together in the comments!
