Another one of my clients said goodbye to me today. It was surprising but I saw it coming. I knew that nothing lasts forever with freelancing, only freedom, and I am thankful I was able to move on and say goodbye without too much stress. It was one of my favorite gigs, writing for a design and arts inspired blog. I need those in my life; arts and design, I mean, and writing about them completes my week. I used to write about these topics before, but not consistently; I only do some posts whenever something strikes me (which I cannot write on any blogs I am working on). My old blog used to feature artists and designers. But now I decided to focus on myself. That’s not too bad, is it?
始めよう means “let’s start” in Japanese, and that’s a fair reminder for me as this work week begins. I still have my clients who chose to work with me not just because of my skills, but because of who I am. And this is just the most wonderful ongoing working relationship I’ve ever had.
