3 affirmations for the next 365 days: on improving myself as a developer

Jumping right in...
Learning web dev feels less threatening knowing that the misconceptions I've had of it fall short of the reality of actually being a web developer.
Thinking that I need to be coding every hour on the hour. Cranking out hundreds of projects because I don't come from a tech background, so I need them to boost me up and essentially play catch up (to what/who I don't know).
Beating myself up because there's so much tech jargon that I need to learn and learn it quickly (again I don't know what/who I'm racing against).
These 2 ideas are the main sources of where my self-doubt and frustration come from- taking the fun out of coding and chipping away at the excitement I have towards it.
Reading posts on here and on other platforms from experienced web developers gives me that much needed deep sigh of relief that I haven't taken in a while. "Mastering" web dev will forever be a learning process and there will always be room for improvement. This isn't a race- there's no finish line.
So, with that said here are my 3 affirmations for the next 365 days:
👾 Learn how to work GitHub and post projects.
👾 Complete at least 2 of the bootcamps I've signed up for on UDemy.
👾 Build a basic website to host my portfolio of 5 website designs (I already have 2).
Can't wait to revist this post and monitor my progress 😊
