One of the things I struggle with is writing my blogs. I get these ideas and sit down to write and my mind goes blank, and then I get this feeling of dread. I am not sure what it is. So, I end up just getting something written. I want to write well, to let my personality come through, so I am trying to write this post, like I am talking to you or IMing you. I don't have any problem writing an IM message, or visiting face to face or on the phone, but when I am writing my blog I freeze up. I don't know if it is some kind of expectation I am putting on myself unknowingly. Anyway, that is one of the things I am struggling with, minor I know, but none the less, something I need to improve.
The other thing I have been struggling with is reopening my Etsy shop. In the past I have tried marketing my soaps and lotions, there are so many people doing that and unless you have something unique, I find it to be a waste of my time and money (though I do have lovely soaps to use myself). So I have been giving this some thought and praying for guidance from the Lord. Now I realize with all that is happening in this country and the world these days, it is not of that great of importance. God does tell us though, in His word, that everything that concerns us concerns Him. So anyway, the other day (well a couple weeks ago, really) I was showing my DH something I am re-purposing and he said....Rustic-chic, that is Rustic-chic (very casual observation type of voice).....now needless to say I was rather stunned that he would even use this terminology or have a clue about chic anything (maybe he has been listening a little, lol), but he is right and I have been thinking about it every since. So now I am on a new path, is it the right path, I don't know, but it is going to be
Thank you so much for letting me vent. Please if you have suggestions on either of these leave a message. I think I am in transition here and I am getting kinda excited about the prospect of just making things I like and if they sell, cool, instead of trying to find something that will sell, it doesn't work, because no matter how cool I think it is....................well you know.
Hugs and may God Bless you richly.
