Continuing on into the second month of 2016. What a beautiful year. Yes there are new challenges and discoveries each day, and the ability to see each day and each moment as the only thing that actually matters is life changing.
You may have read my other posts and this thought process has taken me from a constant state of worry 24/7 to only thinking about and enjoying right now. This very moment. That is all that I am enjoying and being thankful for. Right this very minute. All is well. It is all good! Thoughts running through our minds about what will happen tomorrow or next week is irrelevant to me. I Spend every minute of every day now, just thinking about that moment. This moment.
So continuing on through this new year with a new way of thinking and enjoying life is definitely a new experience for me. And I am enjoying it!
So what to do next? Getting ready to post some new photo's of my new product. The sign painting was a great way to get back into a more creative lifestyle. And then, one night I woke up to an idea that I knew I had to try. I have worked many, many hours, sketching, cutting and painting to come up with my new line of Farm Angels. I was careful not to release too much info, as crafting always seems to stir the waters with new tutorials and idea sharing, I wanted my chance to post the original idea before it takes off on pinterest lol. So with that being said, I have linked up my product page to pinterest and also my store site. This is going to be fun!
Keeping it real...some thing that I have been trying to do lately is that. Trying to find a way to still be myself when nothing is about me anymore. Struggles are so great for everyone and I am sure you have a long list as well. Not everyone is going to have the same challenges in life and sometimes the things that bother us the most are things that do not show up in our photo's. Invisible to others but they continue to eat at our souls until we have resolved them. So this is me , on a day that was nice. It is easy to post a photo after we have done our hair and picked out the perfect clothes, but on this day I did none of the above. I don't live near the ocean. I live on a small street in a small town in Missouri. In a small house. So my outlook is starting to change. Keeping it real. Wearing my sweatpants when I want. Brushing my hair less, maybe even cleaning less. Keeping it all together on the inside is much easier for me when I am not trying to keep it all together on the outside. I love gardening and am going to make this the best season ever, all while making a mess, lol. I read once, that one of your goals should be that when you have people over to your house, they should leave feeling better about themselves, not feeling better about you. And that totally meant why do I spend 4 hours cleaning when I know someone is coming by for 5 minutes? I must be crazy. So here I go, off to work and all the while ...keeping it so real people will be wondering all day what the heck is wrong with me :) and if your feeling the same way.... take the challenge and start just being you :)
