I can’t believe I just typed that title. ALREADY, the first Monday in February! Every year I think that time goes fast, but as I am getting older I find that time flies even faster!
I have a list of things that I would like to try or do that could keep me busy for a very long time, but I always seem to think that I can fit it all in, in just a short amount of time. Why do I ever think that is possible? I decided at the beginning of this year that I was going to take a sabbatical from my businesses and focus on my family and finding my artistic mojo. I thought, oh yah, two months will be enough time. And then went ahead and listed all the things that I wanted to work on during that time. Here is my original post:
“I am going to take a sabbatical from my photography and home and hearth businesses starting January 1st to focus on three things, and their names are, Justin, Jazmin and Jadyn. How am I going to do that you might ask? Well, I am going to do that by bettering myself. I plan on not crocheting or sewing during that time, unless I feel empowered to, but instead spend time doing things that I have not done for awhile like cross stitching, baking, working out, scrapbooking, (maybe some quilting), community choir, and taking a continuing education course in photography(I always have to be learning, it’s who I am). With this I hope to regain some zest for my businesses and make some big decisions as to the direction that they are going. By taking this time for me (and my family) I think it will give us a stronger future. I have spent much time healing from this foot thing, but have not spent many hours doing things during that time that really seemed to complete me and it’s time I take that back! I know this will be a hard thing for me to do because I am not one to say no to work, money and a challenge, but I still think it is needed.”
Seriously, did I think I could do all of that? I lol at myself for thinking it. What I am finding is that I love many things that I listed there. Things that I had put off. Things that I had forgotten about. Things that bring happiness to both me and my family. What I am finding is that I am going to revamp how I run my businesses to fit my family and not try to fit my family into my business. I feel like this is going to be a really fun year, and I can’t wait to see what it brings, But I really hope it ……
S L O W S down!
