I've been considering it for months. Fantasizing, daydreaming, praying, thinking, analyzing, crying, venting, questioning... and now, it's done.
On Tuesday I gave the ad agency I work for my two weeks notice. I'm taking a leap of faith and will be pursuing Hems & Hers full time. I am both terrified and exhilarated at the thought of it. The business has grown so much over the last year, and every sign indicates that it will only continue to as I increase the amount of time and attention I'm able to pour into it.
The decision was not made easily, and I could document each and every offense I've endured at my current place of employment that has led me to this choice, but ultimately none of that matters. What led me to take this step was an unequivocal, "Yes," from the Lord each and every time I poured out my wants, desires, fears and insecurities. He has shown up in huge ways time and time again over the past few months as I've edged ever closer to this life-changing pinnacle, and I have no doubt that He'll continue to hold me in His hand.
I have so many plans for the business, and I'm brimming over with ideas. I'm about to pop with excitement, and my last day here can't come soon enough. I am so thankful for the opportunities I've had at my current place of employ, because it has prepared me on so many levels for what I know lies ahead... both the joys and the struggles. And I am so humbled and honored and thankful for the support system I've had surrounding me as I push closer to this goal. My family, my friends and the beau have been immeasurably wonderful, and I love them all so incredibly much.
So, hey, if you need some cute pieces of clothing, I could use your patronage now more than ever... teehee!
