Life Doesn’t Wait

I have an inspirational calendar and each month I plan to take action with what each month says. This gem is January. My special month because not only does it mean a fresh New Year, but also it’s the month of when I was born. New Year, New Age and Fresh Goals.

Sometimes in life, we try to do things on a schedule or life calendar. We try to plan when and where events will take place, when we will finally square away all those little things we’ve been meaning to do. However, as that beautiful song by Green Day says “Life grabs you by the wrist and directs you where to go”. Those words couldn’t be any more true. We can try to plan out our life as best as we can but life will ultimately rule when it happens.

There is no time like the present to start doing what you want to do. Wishing for something is fine but that’s just the starting point. That wish should quickly be turned into “I will”. As we work towards our goals and aspirations, we can accomplish so much. Don’t wait or wish! As another famous saying goes, “Just Do It”!

To make this short, the subject of this post:

Be a Verb in a would of Nouns.

This is what I plan to be. I’m finally taking an action to gear up my business, gain more sales and reputation. It’s just the start, but it’s no long just a wish.

Should have gone to bed early.

I need my coffee to be my first line of defense from my two adorable and high energy toddlers. Both of which woke up at 6 am. I know that’s not so bad but when you don’t fall asleep until 1 am? It’s rough. It’s all my fault though. I couldn’t stop crocheting!!! Now I know all you moms/dads understand that sense of freedom you feel once those darling angels are sleeping soundly in bed. Those uninterrupted hours are such a joy that sleep just gets put to off to the wayside.

Below are pictures of my wonderful babies. They are full of energy and chock full of imagination!!!! Right now they are ripping through the house and it’s not even 8 am yet!!! Positive note, they will be ready for an afternoon nap which then leaves me to my next question…..

What should I do in my spare time?

Crochet?

Or…

Housework?

Laundry has been long overdue and those dishes are looking at me funny! The children’s toys need to be straightened up as well.

However, my brain calls me to my hook and yarn! I need to be strong and just get those chores done. Then it will be another long night of freedom to crochet?

Sounds good. For now, I’m going to jump into the fun games my kids are playing because those two are the most precious and time sensitive little beings in my life.

For now….

Stayed tuned for my next update! I’m going to let you know where you can find my really awesome new pattern for my Treasure Charm Mermaids. Then I’ll be uploading my new little piggies pattern to the site! I hope you will enjoy those patterns.

Until next time!
