A Change of Seasons





The older you get, the years seem to go by so much quicker.  2011 has been growing experience for me.  Tracy and I made it through our first year together and have learned so much from each other!  I am also working on things that could make my voice-over business even better.  It is such a work in progress.  Just like life.  Every day there is something we can improve on.

For me, it's being more patient, listening better and being an overall better person.  At times, I have had a hard time focusing on one task at a time.  It always felt like I needed to get 100 things done within the span of about ten minutes.  I'm learning to "stop and smell the flowers" a lot more than I used to.

Life is precious and as I get older, I am seeing more of its beauty.  I think this happens when you have made peace with yourself.  Having a supportive girlfriend has really helped.  Tracy has not only been an inspiration to me but she is always there for me.  When you are an entrepreneur working from home, there are going to be some challenging days but with her help, the rough days are far more manageable than when I was by myself.

The sunset in the picture above reminds me of everyday life.  Moments of beauty and darkness,  Somehow, we need to walk through both.
