About two weeks ago I got the idea that I needed an Etsy shop. A lot of bloggers have little shops on Etsy and I started thinking I should, too. I spent my free time on the Etsy website and researched what was already being sold. I began collecting ideas and thinking about names.
Then last week I got a little overwhelmed and I had to talk it out with my husband. I had forgotten motherhood is a job. In the best way, it's a job. I don't need to fill my day or my resume with anything else. I don’t need to have anything else to show for my time.
But Ty won’t be a baby forever (another reason to keep him as the only thing “on my plate”) so we also talked about some other dreams and passions I have. I want to write. I enjoy blogging. I’m involved in a new writers group here in Charleston. (check it out Voices: Write to be Heard) And maybe one day I will have my very own shop.
So I’m thankful I was reminded of my true passion before I wandered down a road of distraction and missed out on any opportunities to mother.
PS This post was inspired byJessi. After I read her post I realized it wasn’t that I didn’t have time in my schedule but I was choosing to fill my schedule with wife and mommy stuff. It’s all about choosing.
