Hey all! Happy Monday!
I’m feeling a little nostalgic today, brought about by a conversation I had with someone over the weekend.
I was in the city for an event and ran into someone from my former life. She was asking me how I had been doing.. and more importantly, WHAT I had been doing.
She got me at an interesting time, in part because I was tired. At this current time I have more bills than money to pay them (man I wish corporations pay schedule was in sync with my bill schedule but that’s another story).
At any rate, I answered my former colleagues questions about what I had done over the last decade building Good Enough Mother. She listened to me talk about building a brand on a shoestring, learning the ins and outs of social media and developing relationships with companies and the pr firms who represent them.
“No one taught you?” She asked.
I explained how I’d learned from various sources and how the mom blog contingent had been exceptionally helpful.
We went our separate ways, with her vowing to head over to my site as soon as she got home.
I thought about our conversation on the way home that night. Like I said I had been feeling sort of beat up lately. Sometimes you have to detail what you have been through to someone so that you can get an accurate picture of where you’ve come from so you can remember where you are going.
The next day after that encounter, I felt somewhat energized and though I have a way to go, it was nice to see where I had been.
There’s no choice. I keep on keeping on… and don’t stop until I get there.
What about you? Do you ever take a moment to look back at where you’ve been and take in your progress? Why or why not?
