How Else Do We Grow?

As a small business owner & the sole creator I can find hurdles that I now know to expect, but took me my surprise at first.
I start my new projects with a feeling, then with a lot of random brainstorming I come up with the end goal. Sometimes the goal seems entirely too big for one person to achieve. Does this mean we need to dream realistically or just delegate?

I Am Convinced There Is More

I am convinced there is more. More than we are commonly taught to believe that will be the recipe for happiness.

I have been on this journey, searching for something I cannot name or put my finger on, for at least 15 years. It is the gut feeling that eludes me when I feel I am getting close.
I have to ask myself, am I going about this all wrong? Am I making this way more complicated than it needs to be?

With A Heart For Any Fate…

I love this quote, it is a beautiful reminder that every day is new & to embrace the opportunities as they come.

 In our home our day can change course hour to hour, even if it’s planned. Just the nature of owning a trucking company.  I’ve learned I’m happiest when I go with the flow. 

  This was a special quote that my Father-in law heard his Father say every morning to wake up all the kids. We have it hanging in our home as well. Julia owner of Something French created this gorgeous handwritten design for us 💗

I’ll buy you a doughnut

Parenting is a journey, lets share it!

Every once in a while you find out someone doesn’t like your child.  At first like any mama bear I saw red & was indignant.

He gets a lot of love, attention & never wants for toys. He also knows that if he cries or complains for something he doesn’t get it at all. He also has to use manners all of the time. He is 3 years old & he has his up’s & down’s but he’s a good kid.

What is it that you do?

When did we become so good at judging each other? I feel like I am constantly having to prove myself & convince people that I DO something.

Say you’re at a wedding, you are introduced to someone new. What do you want to bet in the first 2 questions they ask you “so what is it that you do?”. I dread this question. If I were to answer “I’m a stay at home mom”, unless they are too, there is a look of “so what do you do all day?”. They don’t find it funny when I answer “whatever I want & I don’t even have to wear a bra”.

Let’s Show What Honestly Goes Into Being A Creative

I’m sure you read ” Creatively Honest” & wonder where I’m going with this. I’ve learned the hard way from trying to make everything look perfect in my life, especially on social media, that the weight of that pressure can make you feel like you are drowning among the filters & beautiful things. What do you feel when you look at other women’s Instagram feeds when their lives look like your dreams? I immediately look around my house & wish I was there haha. I am just as guilty too, I try to show only the pretty. You might see a beautiful shot of me knitting with a delicate blanket, it will look dreamy. But I promise you, just out of frame there is my 3 year old son playing with his Rescue Bots or Paw Patrol. I’ve learned to be creatively honest with how I show my life.
