Just wanted to start off the day by saying - I work with almost only women on my project, and I love every single one of them. They are the most supportive, kind, brilliant, and encouraging individuals and I feel so blessed and lucky to be working with them. Who you have in your team seriously makes it or breaks it, and I appreciate that I can work with amazing top notch women like them. Really appreciating my fellow ladies out there!! 💕

Yesterday was a good day. I was really impressed with myself. I woke up at 5, practiced dance lessons, did two water colors, made breakfast and tea, got to work by 10, put in 8-10 hours of solid work and then came home. It’s been ages since I painted or danced. However today, I slept till 7:00, did not work out or have food. Still got to work by 10 and did 8 solid hours of work. Some days are good and some are just okay. And that is okay. Trying to build on my good days and we all can. :)
