At last, its here. A huge big thank-you to everyone who helped and supported in making this dream finally come true.
A new world just opened up for me. First of all, I’ve had to learn so many new skills, shift my mindset several times, be open to approaches I initially could not identify with, and learn to have the patience of Saint WordPress. Yes, one or two pages might be a bit ropey. Yes, there are loads of things we can (and will) add in to make shirleysmithart.com even better step by step.
Like all new things in life – I believe the important thing is to make a start. Take a step in the right direction. Many small steps will lead to something bigger. Right now – I have no idea how much you will choose to join in, explore and be inspired. Right now – I have no idea what awesome opportunities will stem from making this first step. Right now – it feels more like a giant leap of faith. Time will tell. If we don’t try we will never know.
