I’m preparing for the biggest Renegade Craft Fair of them all: Chicago.
I’m learning every single day how to manage my health.
I’m learning to save my energy and make rest a priority.
I’m learning and actively reading about running a business. I’m more serious about Jack Friday now than I was even two months ago. I will make this business work for my life.
I’ve spent the last year learning how to say “No.”
I’ve learned how to ask for what I want.
I’ve learned that a little bit of progress every single day is just as good, if not better, than a lot of progress all at once.
I’ve learned how to sit with things even when they don’t go as quickly or as easily as I want them to. The best example of this continues to be our tiny house. (Click here for the latest video update from Casey.)
I’ve learned to absolutely trust my instincts.
I have a long way to go in my business. But I have come so far over the course of just a year. Every year of my life I think I cannot possibly have another year where I learn so much in just 12 months. Every year I continue to prove that theory incorrect.
I also have an exciting announcement: I’ve had an essay accepted into Free Inquiry magazine! It will be published in the upcoming February/March issue. I submitted an essay on a whim on the day of the deadline in April. It’s my first submission to anything since I’ve been a teenager. I’m ecstatic. I’ll be sure to share more when the issue is published.
