I’m back in Germany! After landing in Frankfurt on Saturday morning, we drove up to Heidelberg (driving in a foreign country is a whole other story). After getting lost more than a few times, we found our hotel on a tiny road in the mountains. After a long nap we went out for a walk, and the photo above is the first one I shot. Wow, right? That’s Heidelberg Castle, which was first built in the 1200′s. Heidelberg is a popular tourist destination, known for being romantik — in terms of being home to many famous poets and writers during the Romantic period, and for being a picturesque and charming spot for couples. (Yep, I read Wikipedia.) The city is breathtaking, and we enjoyed strolling around Old Town, eating tasty meals and exploring the castle ruins.
I’ve been thinking a lot about re-inventing my business, and how to stand out from the sea of other graphic & web designers. In order to do that, I have to step out of the box. I’ve had a few ideas I’ve been tinkering with, but they’re all a little out of my comfort zone. And I had been thinking that wasn’t a good thing, and then I saw this on Pinterest and was reminded that, yes, of course that’s a good thing. I’ve touched on my feelings of perfectionism before, and this certainly relates. I had thoughts like ‘well what if no one likes it?’ and more. But I’m getting more confident that feeling that way is ok, and something I can actually be excited about. After all, if I never make a change, how can my business (or me) ever grow? I may have to look back at this post to give myself a little boost, but changes, they are a-comin’.
