Stepping Stones

Last week I was organizing old documents and backing up finished projects when I came across this.

At work we had been trying to come up with a safe icon and these were two ideas I had produced. Neither were used, we ended up using a padlock from Font Awesome (which is a super handy tool for incorporating icons in your website), but I was happy to see them again. They reminded me that I am being creative in my job, even if the creations aren't being used. It's easy to focus on the negative and be weighed down by it, but growth will come from using projects like these as stepping stones. At least that's what I'm counting on.
