I've been on a social media posting hiatus on and off for the past month or so (maybe because I really hate the new instagram algorithm). But also on top of that, I temporarily stopped designing personal projects due to the need to reflect on the past, present and future. Most of my time spent designing, I was designing for freelance clients or at work. I spent time helping brand other people and it was taking up all of my energy so that by the time it came to brand myself - I had a hard time figuring out who I was. I started to reconsider the idea of freelancing on top of a 9-5 altogether. I started to feel like I was under a microscope and failing in the eyes of everyone else. After a month and half of this unsure feeling that everything I was doing was wrong, I realized that sometimes you need to take a step back and look at the bigger picture.

Stop critiquing myself so hard. Stop caring what other people think. Stop second guessing everything.

I am now finally feeling myself again
