Yesterday I cried happy tears for the first time in…well, it seems like ever. We booked a couple more weddings, got more referrals and our name is slowly but surely getting out there. This may not seem like a big deal to most people, but to me, the girl who is absolutely miserable in her current circumstances, this means the world.
I’ve wanted my own business ever since I can remember and every couple we meet with, every referral sent our way and every wedding booked is leading me to the place I’ve always dreamed of being. I have a creative side that screams at me day in and day out to come out. Instead, I pass through spreadsheets and word documents waiting for the clock to strike 5:00.
This isn’t me; this isn’t the life I want. I want to be out there, running things the way I want to be running things. Well, the way Pat and I want to run things anyway. Without him this whole thing wouldn’t even exist.
As time passes by, I want to keep us on the right track. I’ve made yearly reminders on my calendar that only says, “Where are you now”. Next year, I hope I’m writing about how much things have moved forward. Stay tuned.
