It's been a while since a weekly update has been posted and the thought of amending that little decision is being considered. Each post is actually an update in itself and a weekly summary seems redundant. This year is about learning and experiencing things in a new way and sometimes that means changing the game plan (: The idea was to post the exciting things that were taking place each week so I could see my progress, but some weeks aren't so exciting.
A new journey can be filled with peaks and valleys, twists and turns, but sometimes the path can just be straight and narrow. You can see your next destination straight ahead, but it's a long stretch of path and there's LOTS of hard work along the way.
The last several weeks have been a little crazy. I was accepted as a contributing columnist to Blissfully Domestic, I'm preparing for the She Speaks Conference, making plans to revamp this blog, decided to take my diaper cake shop Simply Baby Cakes back online, and will reopen Natural esSCENTials in the next few weeks. Whew!
So much of the hard work done in previous months is now taking shape, but all at the same time! I know where I'm headed, but just trying to make sure the blessings aren't missed because of the busyness. One of the saving graces has been organization. My studio is finally coming together and it's been wonderful to have a place solely for work. That way the door can be closed when a much needed break is in order.
I was hoping to splash fresh new paint on the walls first, but will reserve that project for another day. Getting worksurfaces and whiteboards in place helped to move other projects along faster and painting would have slowed things down (: I'll take some photos and post the studio makeover updates this week.
So, if you find yourself on the straight and narrow path of your journey, just be thankful you know where you're headed. The work may be hard, the distance may be long and tiring, but it's better than being lost in the woods (:
