A look back to be grateful & move forward in confidence.
To reflect is a good thing, when it can foster growth for the future. Looking back I am now so excited for what is to come. The last 6 months came and went by so quick, seriously, did I just blink? I’ve forged new friendships, strengthened old ones and met some awesome clients along the way. I have grown professionally, personally & creatively, I have set goals and crossed them off my lists, my children are healthy, happy & oh so bratty… this is my life & I am oh so blessed. And it is through this growth, this roller coaster, and this crazy thing called life that I find my inspiration to keep creating.
As I am planning my youngest child’s 5th birthday, I am reminded of how precious time is. My littles are 4 & 6, how in the world did that happen? Being a creative mama is a challenge. Sick kiddos, holidays off, late night cries, temper tantrums, “Bubby is being mean to me!” “Sissy took my toy!”, time out, “No you can’t have candy at 8 in the morning!”, jumping on beds, “Mama, just one more (insert something fun or tasty here)”, potty breaks, play dates, homework practice, chicken “nugs”, Legos, princesses, Frozen, Avengers… yeah it’s a lot but it’s an amazing job & they are my muses. They help me to see the world through their wonder & innocence and it is such a great gift to draw daily inspiration from them. As a busy mama I encourage you to find the time to be creative in your day, however you can. Organize your time and you will see that a little bit of art, paint, pen & paper, hot glue, crayons, wood, (insert art medium here) will set you free.
My 2016 saying is… Here’s to sunshine, dancing in the rain & finding the silver lining in every cloud. And I have been looking to the sunshine everyday and trying to make sure I see the silver lining in every moment. I have improved on myself, have grown so much and I look forward to see what other adventures the rest of the year has for me, my sweet family, my businesses and life in general. I move forward in confidence, excitement and with a grateful heart.
How has the first half of the year been for you?
Have you taken the time to reflect so you can move forward with a grateful heart and confidence?
