Walking through this tax season was a bit unnerving, to say the least, but I feel victorious now on the other side. I think the hardest part for me through this whole tax thing was just starting. Something I've come to learn about myself is that I'm always super hesitant to enter new territory. I learn best by watching others show me how, so when I'm faced with teaching myself I am always really slow to get started. But hey! At least I'm learning.
Nothing in life is free except for one thing, forgiveness. As we have freely received it, we are free to give it. It costs us nothing to forgive someone. It costs us dearly to hold it back.
Freelancing is like the ocean. High tides. Low tides. And all the moments in between. It can be a breathtaking view as the sun sets, or it can be a ferocious site as the storm approaches. But everything has its reason. Working for myself so far this year has already taught me so much. I'm looking forward to what the next 8 months have in store.
