Wow, what a year!
As I write this I have no doubt that 2014 will go down as the hardest year of my life, period.
That is saying a lot, I know. Hard to quantify too. But the challenges that I faced this year were so deep and overwhelming that I have no doubt what I am saying above is true.
Everyone goes through hard times and I am no stranger to them. But the challenges of this year really tested me to the core, to who I am, what I am capable of and what I can tolerate and still move forward.
After leaving my corporate job in 2013 and going into business for myself I had no doubt there were challenges ahead. But there is no way that you can get a clear idea of what’s coming until you are facing it. Many days I felt like I could not go on. And of course the allure of quitting is always sitting in the back of my head.
