Don’t Let Setbacks Stop You In Your Tracks!

When I started this blog I had all kinds of ideas of the things I wanted to do and include here.  I still have all those ideas rolling around in my head and so much I want to share.  Things to have fun with, things to help others with sharing ideas and learning from others ideas and so much more.

I’ve had a lot happen since I first set this in motion and even though life has been a roller coaster   roller.coaster.01   I still intend to share what I can and hope to inspire others to keep going despite their own setbacks.

One thing positive that has happened is what I’ve been referring to as Hurricane Dennise LOL.  I bought a house two years ago now and it has been a work in progress.  I had (and still have) intentions of redoing my single car garage into a craft space and workshop, but due to things that happened during the purchase that were beyond my control I didn’t end up getting back money at closing that I was supposed to in order to not lose the house because of seller errors.  I had planned on using that money to do the garage.  Since I haven’t been able to get it done my craft things have been tucked a little in this room and a little in that room because I didn’t have a dedicated space for it.  Let me lay the scene, it was about 5pm on a Saturday afternoon and I had been working on a project and stopped for a bit to take a break.  When I sat down to take a break I got for a better term angry!  My house was a mess!!  Not just one area where I was working but literally from one end of the house to the other because my supplies were strung out everywhere.  That is when Hurricane Dennise was born.  I decided split second that, that was it I was changing everything around and having a dedicated space.  The one end of my living room where I had a desk and some of my craft supplies was to become my dining area now and my dining room and den area were getting completely moved around to become a dedicated craft space that now if need be I can walk away from close a door and not be upset because my whole house is a wreck.  I wish I had thought to take pictures before I started moving the big furniture but I did think to take ones of the chaos after moving the big stuff with all the totes and boxes and stuff piled up and stacked everywhere from the moving.  I’m showing the after Hurricane Dennise hit pictures before the clean up and the after clean up below.  Maybe not the best way to go about getting something done but hey I’m human what can I say.  Have you ever had a human moment where you went into Hurricane mode?  Please share your experience in comments and let me know I’m not the only one!  At least now I have my dedicated space and come the first of the year I plan on getting back on track and doing more video’s and things to share so I hope you are prepared to come on a journey with me and lets learn new things and share all of our perspectives together.

Despite our setbacks whether it be getting sick ourselves, or having family in and out of the hospital, work related, time issues (all of which I’ve had in the past couple of months plus more) what ever those setbacks are my prayer is that we won’t lose site of where it is that God is trying to take us and we never give up.  I truly believe that sometimes God is trying to tell us we need to take a break and let our own body regenerate while we listen for his direction and if we don’t he will find a way to stop us in our tracks to make us take the time.  In this crazy world we live in we get going so fast that we can’t see our path for the forest in front of us.  Take time especially now with the holidays to do your own regrouping and focusing to be the best you, you can be to start the quickly coming new year.

If I don’t get to post before then I would like to wish everyone a Christ filled Merry Christmas and the most Awesome New Year!!
