I made it! I’m at the point in my career where I feel successful. I worked on some incredible projects with Cherie Enns Consulting, Save the Children, different cities in the Fraser Valley with callbacks to do more work. I have a full-time job as a Graphic Designer at a local Credit Union, doing some interesting work with some spectacular people and have a lot of fun! Everything was going swimmingly. Then two Designers at work left for a short time, and there I was alone. Finally, I feel like I got my footing, but the workload is high for the moment. I quit my business and transferred my clients to a friend I love and trust to take care of them because I felt drained. Now, I’m ringing in the New Year with this emptiness.
I Hustled to go from a Junior title to Graphic Designer at work. I Bustled to do freelance work that mattered and made a difference in my community. Now what?
I’ve been here before.
This feeling feels familiar….
What is the next best thing, and where do I go to find it? Is it back to freelance now everything seems calmer, or take a break and work on my website/new designs? Is it UXUI work? Learn a coding language? Java and Python seem pretty cool.
Self-work makes sense right now. Explore and see where life takes me because you never know what your next dream can be.
