Undergoing a major surgery, breaking up with my last JOB and accepting a position with people I’m excited to work with is basically what I’ve been doing for the last month. Sitting down and actually tallying up these developments is overwhelming in all the best ways. My first feelings are of awe and thankfulness. I’m honored and grateful to be here, reveling in the freelance life, making steps to solidify my business and marveling at the fact that I’m doing it. I’m really doing it.
I’ve accepted a position at Barista Magazine Online for Social Media Content Director. Barista Magazine has been so great to work with and I’m thrilled to continue growing with them.
Being a week post-op has firmly anchored me in my body during this time of accelerated growth. Going slow (like, snail-slow), taking lots of rest breaks and asking for help is certainly something I’m not used to. As I continue working from home (from the couch, from my bed), I’m reminded over and over that progress doesn’t have to look like my adrenaline-fueled line cook hustle from a previous life. It can be slow but inevitable, like recovery, or the millions of growing and budding spring things outside my window.
