I thought I’d write and let you know that I’m not perfect. In fact, I’m far from perfect. the pictures that you see here are cropped and eddited. You don’t see the messy house, dirty kids, tv on in the background, dogs barking, kids fighting, me yelling, etc… I’m not saying that’s how it is all the time, I’m just saying that on a blog you don’t usually see the entire picture of what goes on in other peoples lives.
I’m striving for perfection and that’s OK. I don’t have it all together. I’m human. I worry about my kids, husband, financess, home. I worry that if I don’t start selling the stuff I make then I’ll have to get a job that requires me to work away from the home. I feel jealous when I see other people figure out that *one thing* everybody wants, and they make a ton of money from making and selling it. (Will someone please tell me what that item is so I can make money too?) Sometimes I see other people selling an item that looks similar to something I’m trying to sell and I think “what’s their secret? why aren’t people buying that item from me? what am I doing wrong?” So I revamp the look of my shop, make some new items, take more pictures, put lots of work into it and get no buyers, no comments, nothing. When I was a kid, I would tell my friends that I would be “rich and famous” one day. Now I would settle for “not have to worry about finances”.
So, in conclusion, I want to tell you that I take baby steps toward my goals. sometimes it’s one step forward and two steps back. sometimes it’s five steps back. I struggle to not give up.
just remember that it’s alright to not be perfect. nobody is. you are not alone!
Take care, dear readers!
love and hugs, Missy
