Wow. Amazing words, right?
I wrote about finding my way and what a struggle it was to keep up the balance of running a handmade business, being a wife and mother, keeping up a home. I feel as though I am right at achieving some balance but I'm scared to break through these walls of confined chaos. Reading God's words really put some confidence in my heart, for HE is by my side!
If you haven't guessed already, my word for this year is balance. I really tore myself apart last year because I couldn't find balance. And to be honest, I hurt my little family in the process. I can't get any of that back but I can change myself for the future.
I closed up the shop in July and didn't really touch my sewing machine for quite some time. I tried to be "just a mom". I'm no good at it. I love my children with all my heart but I can only play so many games of dinosaur/super hero/princess. Creating makes me feel whole. It's part of who I am. Again, I just need to find that balance.
I'm an avid list maker, I'm just not so good at keeping up with them for more than a few weeks. So there will be lots of lists this year....I've been on the prowl for easy to follow cleaning charts, family schedules, meal planning, etc....so send 'em my way if you happen to come across any!
I've started sewing again, slowly. My studio is set up....yay! I'm trying my best to only be down there when the timing is right. Which pretty much means when everyone has gone to bed and by then I'm too tired to even head down the stairs...ha! But man, oh man have I missed it. My heart and fingers ache to make something pretty.
Thanks for listening friends. xo Becky
I'm curious (and a tad nosey) have you picked a word for the year?
