“The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and, if they can’t find them, make them. ”
– George Bernard Shaw
Another day, another chance to continue on my journey. Waking up this morning felt different for me. I can’t quite explain it, but this morning I finally made my decision as to what I really want to do and focus on. My Etsy site has been nagging me since it opened. I love it, don’t get me wrong, but nothing has really come of it. I’ve invested a lot of time and money into it and I know it’s still new (November of last year) but with everything I’ve put into it not much has come out of it.
So for the time being I think I’m going to put a hold on my shop, and really dig in to my writing. Because now that I think of it, if I REALLY had to choose, I want to be a writer. So the hair and shoe accessories will be more of a side thing (very small side thing). My sister and I do hope to have a jewelry/accessory party at one point in the fall, so I’ll be able to sell my stuff then. And of course if people I know ask me for something I will definitely accept, but for now my focus is writing.
I’ve spent a good deal of my life feeling like “the world owed me”. That I’ve deserved more. What I woke up realizing this morning is that I can’t demand more, I have to go out and get more. And the one thing I want more than anything right now is to write. It’s the one thing I know I CAN control in my life (the only thing really…) so I have to start now.
Give me a year guys. I’m feeling big things are ahead of me and all I’m asking for is a year.
Happy almost Friday everyone!
