Asking for Help

25 Jun

Asking for help has never been a strong suit of mine! I always hate feeling like I am putting a person in a position they don’t want to be in or making them uncomfortable because I am one of those people that easily get’s that way!

Being a blogger has given me a chance to express myself in a way I never thought was possible – due to the fact that I am insecure in so many ways. My etsy shop has given me the confidence that I can provide for my family doing what I love. Friends & Family have been so encouraging and uplifting when I feel like things are falling apart.

"Be strong enough to stand alone, smart enough to know when you need help, & brave enough to ask for it." - Unknown #quotes

So here I am to encourage the rest of you who feel like I do to ask for help if you need it! I’ve spent the past few years of my life asking for more help than I ever thought. I couldn’t be here today without all the help I’ve gotten and although most of it is from very close family and friends, it’s still important to gain the courage to take a leap of faith and put your heart on the line.

You’d be surprised at how many people are willing to support you achieve your goals.

Getting Down and Dirty

23 Jan

Alright this post is not going to be the typical post. I have a few things on my mind that I felt like sharing because I know I can’t be the only one that feels this way!

I love new beginnings. I love the feeling of starting something that could make a huge difference in my families lives. There’s something about the way a new adventure in life can really spark a sense of hope in someone.

I guess you could say I’m a new beginnings junky! When I notice that I’m getting in a rut of things I get frustrated, bummed, and get antsy.

Antsy is where the magic happens. I can’t stop searching for that perfect thing even though I have no idea what I’m looking for somehow inspiration always finds me! I find that next new thing and I go nuts researching it until I feel ready.

When I reach that moment I tend to search and destroy. Which for me means rearrange, clean and organize every single thing I can think of that might in any way have any slight thing to do with my new inspiration. Okay some of them don’t but it’s super fun!

Then I make a notebook full of lists and goals and preparations and steps to succeed.

I spend a few weeks trucking along with this wonderful, why didn’t I think of this earlier?! mood. Then I get stuck in a rut and we start back at square one.

I am officially noting to everyone that this is my new problem. Who knows, maybe one of these days my next new thing will actually pan out and satisfy my crazy need for new happenings in my life!

Does anyone else feel the same way? What do you do about it?
