I will always look back on this season with gratitude. I'm thankful for so much about these months - a time of nesting and working on our home, a time of rest, a time of growing our business.
(Our business is doing better than ever, but thanks to intentionally focusing on work/life balance, we've had more time away from the office than ever before.)
And I'm especially grateful for a season to intentionally invest in my writing. Though I don't see another one of these seasons cropping up any time soon, I hope for many more in our future. (When we met with a financial advisor last year, we talked about numbers and retirement. I said my dream was to 'retire' by the age of 40, so I could write full-time. Just throwing it out there.)
In the meantime, I've been able to treat writing like my full-time job for the last 5 months. Though I've kept shooting, Jonathan has taken the majority of the shoots for us. Though I've continued to grow Francis Becks, it's been easy to keep it scheduled. And other than that, I've written.
I've started early in the day, I've finished late. I've cried, laughed, hoped, been disappointed. I didn't go to grad school for writing, but I consider so much about this season my crash course in writing and the publishing process.
I see the door snapping shut on this season in a few weeks, but in the meantime, my days will be looking like this ^^^^.
How are your days looking?
