I’m often asked what my favourite part is about my job. It’s an answer I struggle with because my job is ever-changing and something that I love this week will probably be my worst nightmare next week (story of my life…), but I think I’ve finally nailed down my answer.
I absolutely LOVE that every single day I’m challenged to try something new.
I can’t believe I just said that.
A few years ago, the thought of change and anything new scared the bajeeeezus out of me. PROOF. But I’ve made it my life mission to tackle that fear and somewhere along the way it became something I enjoyed.
I’ve come to learn that anything that scares you is exactly what you should be doing.

There truly is nothing more magical than the feeling of tackling something new and realizing that you’re capable of more than you thought possible.
But all of this takes work, practice and patience. The latter of which is not my strong suit.
Take this Almond Butter Hemp Seed Cookies post. At one point in my life I would not have thought that writing a blog post – let alone a blog- was something I was capable of. Food photography gave me anxiety and social media overwhelmed me. Now these things are so basic for me and I’ve streamlined the process to a point where I could probably do it all with my eyes closed…upside down. Except when I come back from vacation.
Sometimes I decide I’m going to tackle GIFs or collages or business-related tasks like pitches and designing proposals. Occasionally I really step out there and take on crazy projects like creating and publishing an ecookbook in 7 weeks. NBD.
My latest project is video. I’ll admit that I hate it. With a passion. I even filmed a video for this post. But it sucks so you don’t get to see it.
But here’s the thing, even though it sucks I know that the next one will be better. I’ll eventually figure out lighting and Adobe Premiere and really creating a piece of work that is both of value to you and an accomplishment for me.
So I’m going to keep at it and one day you’ll get to see the product of this hard work.
Until then, I’m going to keep trying something that scares me every.single.day. I encourage you to do the same because damnnnnn it feels good.
