I have been spending a lot of time lately working “behind the scenes”, a necessary but usually thankless job. Between keeping up and growing the blog and starting both my Etsy shop and an event planning business, I am constantly overwhelmed. My emotional state can best be classified as fearful excitement.
I find myself going to battle with all those pesky fears of – Will I succeed? Is this a mistake? Should I be finding a full time teaching position again? I don’t think those fears are uncommon, either. Finding a balance between your dreams and reality is difficult at best. But there is no working Magic 8 ball to my knowledge and I have an incredibly supportive husband, so I keep moving forward and trying to focus on the excitement part.
A little inspiration around me while I am working can’t hurt either, right?! A constant reminder that a change of direction can be a good thing. That I can create a job and business that I love and is hopefully healthier for me. I thought maybe you could use the same inspiration too!
I link up to the following parties, including Serenity Now, Shabby Nest, Whipperberry, Homecoming, Homestories A to Z, Finding Silver Pennies, Organizing Junkie, The Weekly Creative, Thirty Handmade Days, and the Monthly Pinterest Challenge.
