I saw a post on Facebook the other day that said do more than just work and pay bills. I’m so guilty of this and I’ve got to change this. I make all kinds of excuses why I’m not able to do the things I love. I just finished training for a job that took 6-1/2 months. I’m still in training, but the class room part is finished. I am exhausted and still have a lot of learning to do. Some of the pressure has left, but it’s applying what I’ve learned….yikes!
I’ve started crocheting and blogging again. Crocheting I never stopped, just didn’t post a lot and I have nothing listed in my Etsy shop at this time. Blogging, it’s gonna take time to build my following again, but it can be done. My blog was down for 5 months because I just gave up thinking I would never find the time. Working 40 hours a week, moving and life has kept me crazy and busy. I have enough in my head to keep me busy blogging for 2016.
I’m going to have my blog redesigned, keeping the name and tag line. She doesn’t know it yet, but I’m gonna have my friend Kita of Kokoa Media and Branding do my new design. I’m gonna make use of all the tools that will help me prepare blog posts and schedule postings, blog from my iPad when an idea hits me, and work on my small craft business, Cafe Mocha Creations.
This is what I love to do and it’s truly missing in my life. Work, marriage, motherhood and then I find a little bit of time for the other. It’s about time management, finding time for what I love to do. I work at 6:00-2:30, home to get things done so I can spend time crocheting and blogging. I need to be in bed no later than 9:30 or it’s not pretty, not at all.
Last year was eye opening for me, that’s what life is about. I discovered a few things about myself, marriage, being a mother, the things I thought I wanted in my life, what’s best for me. Yeah, what’s best for me, time to do more of what I love and less of what makes others happy.
I share this every year and this year is no different. It’s not a resolution, its a way we should live everyday. It was a card that I purchased to send to my friends…think I’ll put it on my desktop of my computer.
