My days have been not been the happiest lately. My thoughts are stress-ridden. Any time I tried to post on Twitter nothing positive came out. So I would delete my drafted tweets and just keep trying to truck on.
I am thankful that business is good but there’s a lot going on in my life that is making it hard to feel happy. The most recent thing (the straw that broke the camels back) was that we are being forced to vacate our house. It is a long story but I am in complete shock that this is how that story will end.
J and I have made this our home for the last four years and I am absolutely heart-broken that we have to leave. I have never had such an emotional attachment to a place I have lived before. It feels like a break up.
We have until February 15th to find a new place. The thought of trying to move during my busiest season makes me want to start crying all over again. It will all work out right? It’s just a house. It is what is inside it that makes it a home.
We decided to stay in on New Years Eve. It was the first year we didn’t do something to celebrate, and the first year we didn’t mind doing so. The saying “all you need is love” comes to mind… I don’t know if I completely believe that saying but right now I do feel like J and I will get through these grey skies because we have each other. Him and Penny are what make this my home. Regardless of where we go, and what we face, I’m thankful I have him to see us through it.
I think I’m close to the end of my ‘grieving’ period and ready to look forward to what is next. Not just in where we live, but what is next for my business. I’m getting ready to kick off my Valentine’s Day line and then I’d love to take some time to learn something new. Maybe crochet? Any crocheters out there? I miss hobbies. A new hobby should be one of my 2015 goals.
Do you make new goals at the beginning of each year? On the plane ride home from our Christmas trip to Michigan I took some time to make a list. I never really took New Years resolutions seriously, but I think that is changing due to getting older and running a business. I made both personal and work goals and hope I make progress on all of them in 2015!
Happy New Year you guys! Hope you’re doing well! xo JA
