Good morning, sorry for another ‘quote’ post, I actually did this the same time as the last one so figured I would just post it anyway…since I have been so busy! I actually love the simplicity of this one and my thoughts behind it…and here I go into a personal post for you :) For some reason lately I have been very nervous and apprehensive with my work. I have always been the type to get nervous to send a client their first round of logos, their first website mockup, or just their invoices. It has definitely heightened since going off on my own and supporting myself, probably the fear of failure, or the fear of letting a client down. I put a lot of pressure on myself to succeed and in turn get very stressed out and anxious and just dwell on things. Well, last night before my boyfriend had to leave for work he did something that hilarious and literally brought us both to tears of laughter. Those are my favorite moments. Those are the moments I realize what is truly important (and that I shouldn’t stress so much). He makes me smile and gives me confidence to keep going, and constantly reminds me that I am doing what I am meant to do, even if I cannot please everybody.

So yes, this was a post about my bf which I rarely do (to not bore you), but wanted to share how important it is to have someone in your life that does make you smile. I really do think it is the best medicine. I am beyond thankful to have somebody who makes me smile everyday. On a side note, I am super excited because for the first time in 7 years (our entire relationship) he will soon be done with 3rd shift and on to 1st! We will FINALLY get to do things together! (go to bed together, wake up together, eat dinner together, have weekends together that are not spent with him sleeping during the day.) Oofta, the possibilities are endless!

I Think You'll Love...

  1. Thank you! I love the quote and your openness about your apprehensiveness with work. I feel the same way in my day job, and even more so when it comes to design. Great reminder not to take everything so seriously!

    I’m pretty sure this makes you human and shows your care a lot about your work. We all doubt ourselves so be brave and believe in youself!

    Being worried about your work is normal, I think! I agree that it’s so great to have someone in your life who can help you take your mind off those types of things! Congrats on him going to 1st shift! :)

    Thanks for sharing Angela, I stumbled upon your website and blog about a month ago whilst looking for inspiration for my own branding and am in love with your work and design style!! (I keep checking back to see if you’ve posted) I am in the process of starting my own graphic design business and have always been nervous and self doubted my own work so I am so glad to hear you do it too, especially when you are so good at it!! I am particularly struggling with getting my own branding done aaaarghhh the pressure to be perfect ha ha. Hopefully these comments above will help you to instil more confidence in your self :o) My husband also does shift work so I fully understand, although he gets four days off in a row so it gives us some good family time. Enjoy your work!

      Thank you for stopping back! And yes, it is difficult to do your own branding..I’m not sure if I’ll ever really love my own logo! I wish you the best with your new endeavor, work hard and you’ll go places!
