These past weeks have seen many shifts and changes. All week I was in a serious haze of confusion. All day Thursday I INSISTED it was Friday. And all day Tuesday I swore it was Wednesday. It was one of those folks.
And it’s really no surprise. In a few short weeks some big things have happened. Our youngest babe turned one. We made official plans for our big move in October-we are beach bound folks. I made some decisions about my small businesses and together with my husband carved out a way to work two days a week on these ventures.
Today is day one of the new work schedule, and it is going really well. With more time to focus in one sitting I don’t feel so rushed and it is way easier to see things in a big picture, rather than a scattered pieces sort of way. I’ve been struggling for a while to make myself pick just one thing to focus on as far as a business to grow. That has been super hard. Having littles at home with me 24/7 for almost 5 years now has been great and has also created a serious backlog of projects in my mind and in my notebooks. For the past two weeks I have been taking a few hours each (early!) morning to visit these ideas and trying to choose one to focus on. Placing one or two on the back burner just kept frustrating me.
So, in an effort to work with myself instead of against myself, I decided to just go ahead with both. Why not, right? Everything happens for a reason and neither of these are wiling to wait, so…
Here’s the first venture I’m working on.
I’ll be sharing the other venture next week some time. I’m excited to grow both of these ventures…slowly. It’s my new motto. Being a super type A nutter by nature, slowing down has been a real challenge for me-but it is what these upcoming years are going to be all about. Slowing down. At home, at work, in my thoughts, and in my actions. Moving more slowly and being more intentional with everything I do and everything we do as a family. Little by little we are moving towards the lifestyle we want to live. With each change comes adjustments. Adjustments that make us a little uncomfortable at first, feel a little strange, but eventually they move us closer to the people we want to be and the lives we want to live.
So happy Friday everyone. I’m so excited it really is Friday this time. Have a great weekend.
P.S I also changed the look of the blog. Ch-Ch-Ch-Changes…..Like it?
