I couldn't sleep thinking about the baby coming, the new year, the past 3 years, etc. therefore, I decided to start making a list of all the things I learned in my business to remind myself it will all be alright.
Here is what I learned in the past year or so. It has been one huge learning experience filled with joy, tears, successes, more failures, enthusiasm, hopelessness, incredible faith, lack of trust, exhaustion and tremendous energy. Yes, I have felt it all. And I am extremely grateful for my husband, daughter, mom, and dogs for making this house a loving home that is a constant reminder of why I keep going.
Ready for this list that probably can still go on forever? Lol
