Sometimes things don't work out...and that doesn't have to mean a damn thing!

The best thing I've learned about being an online content creator (and in life) is that not everything works out. And this doesn't have to mean a thing.

It doesn't mean you suck.

It doesn't mean your ideas suck.

You don't have to make a story about it. You can just let go and move on. Easier said than done, right?

I've tried a lot of little things that didn't work out for me since I started You Deserve Reiki in 2014 and DestinyArchitecture.com in 2016:

✨  Acuity scheduling—twice

✨  Patreon

✨  Shopify

✨  Amazon ads 🙄

Then there were the places I spent time that I thought were important:

🖼️ Making graphics on Canva (to be fair, Unsplash or Pexels wasn't built in yet and I needed something. Yes, iPhone photo quality was meh too).

🗣️ Crafting social media posts for my audience of (back then) less than 100 people. This tied into Canva graphics...so...much...time!

It's a good time to remember that no matter what we endeavor to do, there is no such thing as overnight success. If you can fall in love with the journey or process, you can do anything and be happy doing it.
