Do you ever just sit and dream? I am kinda a dreamer, ideas are always popping into my head that I can’t WAIT to try out! I love creating and designing and I have about a million things on my to do list for my business. So I sit down and make goals, I tell Loren. He is the sweetest, he is a huge encourager and never makes me feel like my ideas are stupid. In fact I am not so sure I could run my business without him. Because he keeps me going when I don’t really want to, or when I am doubting myself. It usually goes something like this: 1. I have a great idea (or so I think!!). 2. Can’t wait to tell Loren. 3. Tell Loren. 4. Begin doubting. 5. Loren encourages me to believe in myself. 6. Write goals, and try them out. For this support I am truly grateful.
Lately a very big goal has been on my mind. Something new and something quite exciting. I am still in the process of brainstorming how to work out all the details. As I am now in the second trimester of pregnancy, I have my energy back. The first couple months I was so completely exhausted and feeling quite sickly, I kind of forgot what it feels like to be normal. I am normally always on the go and hardly ever sit still. So now with all that energy back it is kind of dangerous. I wonder what am I doing with this big of a goal when I have a baby on the way?! Will I have time? What if it turns out a huge failure? What if this, and what if that?!? But I love what I do and I want my business to continue to grow. So I need to try new things. Take the step believing that whatever happens is meant to be. I need to be brave. I am so grateful that The Ruffled Stitch has taken off so well on Etsy. I am beyond grateful that I can do what I love to do every. single. day. Looking back at where I started to where I am now gives me courage to keep trying new things. I look back on what I first sewed to what I sew now, my first pictures to the pictures now, my first blog posts to my blog posts now and I am like wow, I really have learned a lot! Sometimes just looking at where you started can give you courage to look into the future.
So I am focusing on Jeremiah 29:11- For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.
So I think I am going to be brave, try something new. I am pretty excited about it. So there it is, sometime in the near future there will most likely be some changes going on. More hints and sneak peaks to come (:
