on bettering myself and being inspired

I found this cute little blog the other day, and decided today that I want to join Casey, in her{ what's on your heart} friday.  I have a lot on my heart today, and mostly its about bettering myself and continually being inspired, which oddly enough I have found lately through my blog and my biz.  sound strange?  let me explain.

  I started my little hobby as simply that, a hobby, a past-time, a way to fulfill my desire to be crafty and creative and have a little something to enjoy.  as things progressed and people actually liked my stuff, my little biz grew and now, I find myself thinking about it constantly. I have this creative calling {sounds crazy I know} and this little voice in my head keeps telling me, go on, and so I do.  the little voice tells me, this is going to be big, stick with it, and I do.   I am inspired by the little lady in my life and everything I do, I do it for her.  sure, I have high hopes and dreams, I would love to be able to sew and blog full-time someday, to be a stay at home mom and work with her by my side. but for now, I must focus on who I really am and how to share it with you, through my designs and creativity, as well as my blog.  I like writing, and find myself enjoying this new blog avenue almost as much as designing and sewing.  I can share anything I want and not have to feel judged.  I can hide behind the balloons so to speak, and put it all out there and never have to see your faces, you know the faces of disapproval or disappointment, the faces that I don't want to see.  so in my mind, I see all smiles and approving faces. this keeps me going.

I must remember to stay positive
and try to look at the glass half full not empty.  I need to continue to stay inspired and let the beauty around me lead the way.  I need to continue to just be me...
I need to remember to put myself out there and conquer my fears. sometimes, I find myself worried about how others will perceive me and if they will like the things I blog or the things I make.  I need to have confidence in myself and my creativity.  the rest will follow in place.

                                                                         I need to follow my dreams and remember the sky's the limit.  and continue to build relationships. the creative community is truly an amazing one. I have people that I look up to greatly, people who inspire me daily, and people who mentor me without even knowing it.   I am excited to be that someone for others and to continue to be a part of this welcoming community.

and most of all, I need to remember, that I have an amazing support system, my husband, my friends and family.  this is all for fun and a way to track my family and my daughter's growth and my accomplisments and those that are closest to me give the fuel that I need to continue on and furthur inspire my creativity.
